EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) Rachel Banham tied a NCAA record with 60 points – with 10 coming in the first overtime and eight in the second – to lead Minnesota to a 112-106 win over Northwestern on Sunday.

In matching the 60 points put up by Cindy Brown of Long Beach State against San Jose State on Feb. 16, 1987, the 5-foot-9 guard made 19 of 32 shots, including 8 of 15 from 3-point range, and hit 14 of 16 free throws. She also had eight rebounds, four assists and two steals for the Golden Gophers (16-7, 8-4 Big Ten).

Along the way, the senior from Lakeville, Minnesota, shattered the school (44) and Big Ten records (49). She moved within 47 points of breaking Lindsay Whalen’s school record of 2,285 points.
