Needing seven points to reach the 3,000-point plateau entering the Bombers’ road game at Albany Dec. 16, junior Becca Dahlman quickly eclipsed that mark and kept rolling as Braham won big over the Huskies 91-47.
Dahlman scored 17 points in the first half and finished with 40 for the game. She also dominated on the boards with 24 rebounds, including 8 on the offensive glass. Plus she led the Bombers with 7 assists and 5 steals against the Huskies.
Dahlman is now seventh all-time in Minnesota girls basketball scoring history with 3,089 points. Next on the list to overcome is the original super-scorer, Janet Karvonen of New York Mills, who finished her career in 1980 with 3,129 points. Minneapolis South’s Taylor Hill owns the MN girls’ scoring record with 3,888 points.
Also against the Huskies, Kelsey Sorenson-Giffrow scored 21 points, adding 5 rebounds and 4 assists. Kayla Nickles hit 4 three-pointers to finish with 12 points.
Dahlman breaks single-game record vs. Lions
Becca Dahlman’s electric scoring stretch continued to the Dec. 20 home game against Ogilvie when she broke her own team record with 56 points against the Lions in a 103-50 Braham win.
That total is just two points off the state record of 58 set by Lester Prairie’s Kay Konerza back in 1982.
Ogilvie, paced by Brandy Erickson’s 29 points, actually was in the game in the first half where Braham led 59-37. But Dahlman went on to finish with 11 rebounds, 6 assists and 6 steals to help Braham control the visitors in the second half.
Sorenson-Giffrow scored 16 and dished 9 assists. Nickles added 8 points, and Austyn Eng chipped in 7 points and 7 assists.
The Bombers are now 4-0 in the Great River Conference and 7-0 overall.
