Nebraska Cornhuskers 73

Minnesota Gophers 110

The Minnesota Gopher women's basketball team won their third straight game as they whipped Nebraska 110-73 at Williams Arena Thursday night.

1. Red hot Gophers

The Gophers were red hot Thursday night, shooting 55 percent from the floor. They were also knocking down threes. Minnesota finished 10-of-25 from behind the arc.

Five Gophers finished the night in double figures.

2. Encore for Banham

Fresh off her NCAA record-tying 60 point performance Sunday night, the big question was what would Rachel Banham do for an encore.

She had a big answer, finishing with 32 points while connecting on 12-of-20 from the floor. Then what happens when you draw the defense's attention?

3. Counting in threes

Whether it's Banham, Carlie Wagner, Mikayla Bailey or another Gopher, Minnesota has made a habit of beating teams with the three-pointer.

In fact, the Gophers have broken a single-season school record for three-point field goals.
