Kelsey Mitchell breaks Rachel Banham's career Big Ten points record as No. 12 Ohio State defeats Michigan State 78-62. (0:39)

Kelsey Mitchell scored 23 points to become the Big Ten's all-time leading scorer as No. 12 Ohio State notched a 78-62 victory over Michigan State on Saturday.

Mitchell, a 5-foot-8 senior guard, has scored 3,098 points, passing Rachel Banham, who scored 3,093 in her career at Minnesota. Mitchell made four 3-pointers, extending her NCAA career record to 449.

"Sounds normal to me right now," Mitchell said when asked about the record. "We just got off a three-game losing streak, so we're just going to take this win.

"Everything I have been through, everything this team has been through [injuries, transfers]. To want to be part of the program like this that has been through so much, you can't do anything but smile about everything."

The win snapped a three-game losing streak for the Buckeyes (17-5, 6-3 Big Ten). They had won nine straight prior to the skid.
