Rachel Banham has learned to stop caring and simply start playing.

Sounds easy, but it's not.

Banham, the former Lakeville North legend and Gophers star, is in her seventh season in the WNBA, her third with the Lynx. And she is coming off the best month of basketball she has played since she wore maroon and gold.

In 11 July games, coming off the bench as the top backup guard, Banham averaged 20.5 minutes and 12.4 points as the Lynx went 6-5. She shot 52.2% overall and made 29 of 58 three-point attempts (50%) . She scored in double figure in seven of those 11 games, making her a leader for the WNBA's best bench.

"I have found my rhythm,'' Banham said Tuesday from Seattle.

She really has looked like a changed player of late. It's really great to see because at the beginning of the year she looked like she was on her way out of the league.

It's great to see her finding her confidence in her shot. She's been a big boost off the bench for the Lynx. CR knows how to get the most out of her athletes.
