TROY, AL (WSFA) -

Beyoncé said it best. If you liked it then you should have put a ring on it. Basketball must be in love with Troy's Claresa Banks, as the sport has given her five championship rings during her career.

She's won two Sun Belt titles during her two years at Troy, one from her sophomore year in JUCO, and two state championships rings from high school. She has her JUCO and 2016's Sun Belt championship rings with her at Troy but admits her mom will not relinquish the high school rings.

Banks was instrumental in helping the Trojans earn their second consecutive berth in the NCAA tournament. In Troy's three games in the Sun Belt tournament, She scored 19, 20, and 12 points, respectively.

But she's not satisfied with just having five. She's ready to start working on her second hand.

"I mean, it feels amazing. I feel like I'm Kobe for a minute having all them rings," Banks laughed. "It feels better every year, every time I get another one added to my collection. It makes me more proud. It makes my family more proud."

Banks and the Trojans begin their journey for a national title as they take on Mississippi State at 1:30 p.m. on Friday in the NCAA tournament.
