After leading Ohio State to a share of the Big Ten women's basketball championship and the top seed in the conference tournament, junior guard Kelsey Mitchell was announced today as the Big Ten player of the year.

The award comes two years after she was named co-player of the year with Minnesota’s Amanda Zahui B.

Mitchell was also unanimously named first-team all-Big Ten. She has been an all-Big Ten first-team selection in each of her three seasons at Ohio State.

The junior from Cincinnati is averaging 23.4 points through 30 games, along with four assists and 2.9 rebounds. She is tied for third in Division I women’s basketball with 100 three-pointers made.

“I am really humbled and honored to receive this award. I don’t set individual goals of winning certain awards but I just try to get better as a player each day and do whatever I can to help my team win,” Mitchell said in a statement released by OSU.

“We’ve had a great year and my teammates have been tremendous and I can’t wait to get back out on the court with them.”
