BRAHAM, Minn. - It's difficult to get senior Rebekah Dahlman to talk about her record-setting 5,000th point from Wednesday night.

"It was a great team win," says Dahlman. "That's how state championship teams play."

The Braham High School superstar sticks to her team's success and spends little time focusing on her own accomplishments, but the list of them is long. She's never lost a home game in her high school career, she's helped to lead the Bombers to five state tournament appearances, and she's been a varsity starter since 7th grade.

And if that wasn't enough, on Wednesday in the state quarterfinals, Dahlman became the first girls basketball player in Minnesota history to hit 5,000 points.

"It doesn't mean much to me," she admits. "I'm sure when I get older I'll look back on it."

She's averaging well over 30 points this season and leading the team to an undefeated record.  Her goal, however, has nothing to do with statistics, but a second state title.

"It would be a blessing to go out my senior year with a title," said Dahlman. "It would mean a lot to the team, the coaching staff, and this community." 

Dahlman has moved into the top 5 all-time in career points nationally among high school girl's basketball players.

Dahlman plans to attend Vanderbilt University.

On March 9, Anders Broman of Duluth's Lakeview Christian became the first player in Minnesota high school basketball history to surpass 5,000 career points.
