This Is The Women's College Basketball Play That Got Kobe Bryant's Attention


It's hard to imagine Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant thinking about anything other than his final NBA All-Star Game appearance this past weekend, but it appears there was another hoops star he was paying attention to Monday night.

With eight seconds remaining in the game and her team down by one, Minnesota Golden Gophers basketball player Rachel Banham knew what had to be done. The senior guard needed to channel her inner clutch -- her inner Kobe -- and sink a buzzer-beater to win the game.

And, as you can see in the video, she did.

Kobe took note of Banham's unbelievable shooting, and he tweeted his admiration for her game-winning shot.

This is actually the second time in less than a week Banham was the subject of Kobe's tweets as he shouted her out on February 9 after she dropped 60 points in a double-overtime win over Northwestern.

Banham saw Kobe's tweet and responded as you might've imagined.

Slightly less starstruck this time around, here was the chill response Banham hit Kobe with last night.

Evidently, real recognizes real.
