Tori Jankoska Records 2nd Triple-Double in MSU Women’s Basketball History
With just under three minutes to go in Michigan State’s win over Minnesota Tori Jankoska made Spartan history. She secured her 10th rebound for the program’s second ever triple-double in a game.
The other one was recorded by Kristin Haynie in 2005. Haynie recorded it (13 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists) against Vanderbilt in the NCAA tournament on the way to Michigan State’s final game appearance that season.
With that rebound, @vjankoska1 becomes the first MSU women's basketball player with a triple-double since Kristin Haynie in 2005!!!

Jankoska recorded 24 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in the 85-69 win over the Golden Gophers. She previously had a double-double and seven assists six different times in her Spartan career prior to this feat.
Jankoska wasn’t the only Spartan to have a day against Minnesota however, Branndais Agee recorded a career high 30 points and freshman Taryn McCutcheon recorded 12 assists in the contest.
In a game that on paper should have been competitive Michigan State advanced to 17-9 easily to help their tournament resume. The Spartans outscored Minnesota 48-34 in the 2nd half (MSU recorded 24 points in each quarter that half).
The Spartans shot 52% from the field including 43% from deep and had 28 assists on 33 field goals tonight.
Truly an incredible effort from the Spartan Women’s Basketball team.
