Rachel Banham, the Gophers’ most recent addition to the WNBA ranks, returned to the court for the first time since early last season. She underwent knee surgery during the 2016 season, then decided against playing overseas in order to focus on recovering for training camp. Banham played in the Connecticut Sun’s game against the Atlanta Dream last weekend.
