Kelsey Mitchell, the most prolific scorer in Ohio State women's basketball history, made her WNBA debut along with former teammate Stephanie Mavunga. However, their new team, the Indiana Fever, were routed in the second half of an 18-point loss to the visiting Chicago Sky.

Mavunga and Mitchell's WNBA debuts were less than sterling in addition to the loss. Mitchell played 14 minutes and scored five points on 2/8 shooting from the floor. Mavunga played 11 minutes, netting only a steal in the box score.

Linnae Harper, another Ohio State alumnus, could've made her WNBA debut for the victorious Chicago Sky after going unselected in this year's WNBA draft, but she did not see the court in the Sky's 18-point win.
