Key stat: Leads the team in scoring and steals
Did you know?
Her high-school coach says he never saw anyone who hated to lose as much as Mitchell.
“That’s pretty accurate. I try to make a competition out of pretty much everything. I’ll race Tiffany (Davis) in drinking a cup of water.”
When did it start?
“I guess it was when I really started taking basketball seriously. I hated losing more than I loved winning. My whole day would just be ruined.”
Her trademark is her sequined headbands.
“I had them in high school, but they didn’t allow me to wear them. I like a lot of diamonds and sparkles, girly stuff. I have black, pink, red, gold, purple, blue, silver.”
Because of uniform restrictions, she can only wear certain ones in certain games.
“I always have a backup if they make me take it off. In practice, I have to either wear silver, black or red, since it’s kind of garnet.”
