She has recorded seven games scoring 20-plus points, including recording a career-high 30 points in Tech’s win at No. 4 NC State.

On Senior Day against No. 17/18 Florida State, Pan led the Jackets with 23 points, hitting six three-pointers to match her career-high. She has hit three or more three-pointers in six outings this season and has led the team in scoring in 11 games during her final campaign.
