COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State junior guard Kelsey Mitchell will return for her senior season with the women's basketball program.
Mitchell released the following statement:
"Getting a degree from The Ohio State University was one of my top goals when coming to college and I look forward to completing my degree next spring. My teammates and I also have a number of goals we have yet to accomplish on the court. One of those goals is to play in the Final Four and we have a tremendous opportunity to do that next year here in Columbus. I'm excited to get back in the gym with my teammates and continue to work to get better."

Mitchell is also the school and Big Ten’s all-time leader in career three-pointers made. She was eligible for this year’s WNBA draft based on her 22nd birthday being in 2017.
