The list of awards and honors continues to grow for former Ohio State guard Kelsey Mitchell.

On Thursday, Mitchell was in Philadelphia with her family to receive the Phoenix Club of Philadelphia's Dawn Staley award, given to the nation's most outstanding guard.

Louisville's Asia Durr, Connecticut's Kia Nurse and Mississippi State's Victoria Vivians were the other finalists.

Mitchell won her third Big Ten Player of the Year award in four seasons as a senior, averaging 24.3 points and more than four assists, and recently became Ohio State women's basketball's first four-time All-American.

She finished the season with a career-low 78 turnovers and helped guide Ohio State to a 28-7 record. The Buckeyes were upset by Central Michigan in the NCAA Tournament round of 32.

In her final game in an Ohio State uniform, Mitchell passed Southwest Missouri State's Jackie Stiles to rise to No. 2 on the NCAA Division I women's basketball career scoring list.

Mitchell is projected as top-two pick in next week's WNBA Draft. She will be in New York for draft night.
