Ohio State-women's basketball-buckeyes-big ten champions

No. 14 Ohio State women’s basketball won the Big Ten regular season title outright on Sunday, topping Penn State 89-64 to do it.

Kelsey Mitchell had 22 points to lead all scorers and had a major accomplishment in the process (more on that below). Stephanie Mavunga had 21 points and Linnae Harper had 17 in the effort as well.

It’s the Buckeyes second straight Big Ten title and their 16th overall. It’s also their ninth outright title, which is four more than anyone else in the conference.

In the win, Mitchell also jumped a big, big name on the NCAA all-time scoring list on Sunday.

Mitchell passed Baylor superstar Brittany Griner for third on the list with 3,284 points and counting during the Buckeyes game the Nittany Lions.

Mitchell also achieved the mark in less games than Griner did, 135 as opposed to 148.

Next on the list is Jackie Stiles from Missouri State who has 3,393 points, while Washington’s Kelsey Plum owns the all-time record with 3,527 points.
