Amanda Zahui B. was a one-person wrecking crew for the Gopher women's basketball team Tuesday night as she led Minnesota to a 93-80 victory over No. 13 Iowa at Williams Arena.

The Stockholm, Sweden, native scored 39 points and grabbed a program-record 29 rebounds in leading the Gophers to an important victory.

Adding to the remarkable game for Zahui, she ran up those big numbers on a night when she also surpassed a major career milestone.

But the great part about Zahui's big night, is that she wasn't alone. She led four Gophers who finished in double figures. Carlie Wagner scored 17 points and Shae Kelley added 13, while Mikayla Bailey chipped in 10.

All of that added up to Minnesota's 21st victory of the season.

The Gophers (21-6) host Michigan on Saturday afternoon.
