The 5-8 senior from Cincinnati, Ohio, is 442-of-1153 (.394) in her career from behind the arc with 10 regular season games remaining. Mitchell entered the week ranked second nationally in scoring at 25.3 points per game.

Mitchell also improved to eighth all-time in career scoring in DI women's basketball history with 15 points against Maryland, passing UConn's Maya Moore (3,036 points) and Delaware's Elena Della Donne (3,039). Mitchell now has 3,048 points in her career. She needs just 46 points to break Minnesota's Rachel Banham record for the most points in Big Ten history.

Washington's Kelsey Plum holds the all-time scoring record with 3,527 points.
