Rachel Banham has surgery on knees

MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota junior captain Rachel Banham has undergone successful surgery for patellar tendonitis in both knees.

Coach Pam Borton made the announcement Tuesday. Banham had the surgery earlier this week.

Borton says the surgery was performed in the summer to make sure Banham "will be at 100 percent for her junior year."

Banham, who's from Lakeville, averaged 20.7 points per game and posted five games with 30 or more points and 16 games with 20 or more points last season.
