In a 78-62 victory Saturday afternoon over Michigan State, Kelsey Mitchell broke the Big Ten career scoring record scoring more points than any men’s or women’s Big Ten basketball player ever.

Mitchell finished with a game high 23 points shooting 9 for 15 from the field which was enough to break Minnesota’s Rachel Banham’s previous record of 3,093 points.

Mitchell currently sits at 3,098 career points and is currently seventh in NCAA history for career scoring.

After the game, Mitchell commented saying “I didn’t even know about the record, I just knew that Rachel Banham had a lot more points than me. To be a part of that conversation is something wonderful, and I want to thank everyone for congratulating me and for all their support.”

Mitchell and the 12th ranked Buckeyes are currently sitting at 17-5 and have 8 games left on the schedule as Mitchell climbs up the ranks towards Kelsey Plum’s NCAA scoring record of 3,527 points.
