Tally up yet another postseason honor for Kelsey Mitchell as the Buckeye star was named a second team All-American by ESPNW on Monday afternoon.

She's already been named the co-Big Ten Player of the Year as well as the Big Ten Tournament's most outstanding player.


Mitchell is at 3,363 points in her career, No. 3 in NCAA history behind Washington's Kelsey Plum (3,527) and Missouri State's Jackie Stiles (3,393). Mitchell's 37-point performance in a 78-71 overtime victory at Michigan on Jan. 7 was an example of why she's so hard to stop: Even when the defense knows she's getting the ball, she just keeps attacking. She had nine of the Buckeyes' 14 points in the extra period.

Mitchell led the team and finished second in the conference in scoring, averaging 24.4 points per game, and led the Buckeyes to both the Big Ten regular season and tournament championships.

The list also features the other co-Big Ten Player of the Year, Iowa's Megan Gustafson. The nation's leading scorer was named a third-team All-American.
