Rachel Banham needs only 247 more points to become the 21st Gopher in program history to notch 1,000 career points.
• With the guard averaging 19.2 points per game, she could possibly reach the milestone in Minnesota's Big Ten matchup vs. Michigan on Jan. 31 at Williams Arena.
• Banham currently paces Minnesota in scoring with her 19.2 points per game average, while also boasting team-highs with 38 assists and 23 steals.
