Former Gophers star guard Rachel Banham averaged 12.4 points per game off the bench in July and made 50% of her three-pointers.
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.
