The senior caught fire against the Redhawks, going 12-for-20 from the field, and 4-for-8 from three-point range. She was also 11-for-15 from the free-throw line, and tallied a game-high seven rebounds, to go along with a pair of steals.
Banjo's stellar showing was not only a career high, but also the best scoring performance in the A-Sun this season. Her mark ties her for eighth place on the ETSU all-time single-game scoring list. Former Lady Buc Marsha Cowart holds the single-game mark at 52.
The senior, who is currently averaging 21.2 points per game, also made national noise as her 39 point-performance is the fourth-highest tally in the entire NCAA this season, according to statistics through Dec. 19.
The Lady Bucs are currently atop of the A-Sun at 6-3 overall, and 2-0 in Conference play. ETSU hits its Conference slate full-time tonight, as
