COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Associated Press Ms. Basketball Kelsey Mitchell scored 30 points and Carlie Pogue added 17 points and 14 rebounds to lead top-ranked Cincinnati Princeton to its second big-school championship with a 61-55 victory over North Canton Hoover on Saturday night.

Princeton (28-2) improved to 2 for 2 in the state tournament, also winning the title in its only other appearance in 1987.

Mitchell scored 15 points in the first quarter and then became less of an offensive force as her team never trailed after she fueled a 9-2 start. She also had four rebounds and three assists.

Kaylee Stroemple had 19 points and 12 rebounds for fifth-ranked Hoover (26-3), with Julie Worley adding 18 points.

Down as many as 14, Hoover cut the lead to four with 17 seconds left.
