Kelsey Mitchell was named to the Associated Press all-America second team Monday, finishing her Ohio State career a perfect four for four in making either the first or second team.
The 5-foot-8 guard from Cincinnati made the first team in 2016 and the second team three times: 2015, 2017 and 2018.
Mitchell averaged 24.3 points, 4.2 assists and 3.2 rebounds as a senior. In Ohio State’s upset loss to Central Michigan in the NCAA Tournament round of 32, Mitchell passed Southwest Missouri State’s Jackie Stiles to become the No. 2 career scorer in NCAA Division I women’s basketball history at 3,402 points. Only Washington’s Kelsey Plum (3,527 points) sits ahead of her on the list.
A’ja Wilson of South Carolina, Connecticut’s Katie Lou Samuelson, Oregon’s Sabrina Ionescu, Louisville’s Asia Durr and Mississippi State’s Victoria Vivians made the AP first team.
Baylor’s Kalani Brown, UConn’s Gabby Williams, Iowa’s Megan Gustafson and Notre Dame’s Arike Ogunbowale join Mitchell on the second team.
Gustafson and Mitchell were earlier this year named co-Big Ten Players of the Year, earning Mitchell the award for the third time in her Ohio State career.
Over the course of the 2017-18 season, Mitchell became the NCAA Division I and all-divisions leader in career three-point field goals. She finished her Ohio State career with 106 wins, including six NCAA Tournament wins.
Mitchell has been projected as the No. 2 pick in the WNBA draft behind Wilson in most mock drafts.
