THE OPENING TIP - QUICK NOTES
• The University of Minnesota women's basketball team concludes its non-conference slate vs. Creighton at Williams Arena Sunday at 2:00 p.m.
• The Golden Gophers enter the contest with a 10-3 record on the season and look to improve upon their four-game win streak, which matches its longest streak of the year.
• Creighton is also looking to protect its winning streak in Sunday's matchup, as the Bluejays have won their last six contests and carry an 8-2 overall record into their game against the Gophers.
• The Bluejays' only losses have come against ranked opponents (No. 12 Oklahoma and No. 22 Kansas) and they have yet to lose a contest on the road this season, holding a 6-0 record as the visiting team.
• Minnesota and Creighton will meet on the hardwood for the sixth time on Sunday, with the Gophers holding a 5-0 advantage in the all-time series.
• Three of Minnesota's wins have come in Minneapolis, with the Gophers outscoring the Bluejays, 249-184, in those contests.
Kayla Hirt was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week on Dec. 24 for her performance vs. Northern Iowa on Dec. 21.
• Hirt posted her first-career double-double with 12 points and a career-high 12 rebounds, including five on the offensive end, in the win vs. the Panthers.
• Minnesota's eight non-conference, regular season home victories this season are the most in program history.
• With 841 career points, Rachel Banham needs just 159 more points to become the 21st Gopher in program history to notch 1,000 points in her career.
• She would become only the third Gopher to reach the milestone in just two years of play.
Amanda Zahui B. began practicing with the Gophers on Dec. 27, just two days after arriving on campus Christmas Day.   
• Minnesota will open it Big Ten season with a pair of road games at Michigan State and Wisconsin on Jan. 3 and Jan. 6, respectively.
