Ohio State's Davenport Selected Big Ten Player of the Week

Feb. 6, 2006

Jessica Davenport, Ohio State
JR, 6-5, C, Columbus, Ohio/Independence

Davenport earns her third weekly honor in the past four weeks after turning in a dominant performance on the road against Indiana on Sunday.  The reigning Big Ten Player of the Year made 10-of-11 field goal attempts - rebounding the lone miss for a follow-up basket - en route to a game-high 23 points in Ohio State's 61-45 victory in Bloomington.  Davenport, who also pulled down nine rebounds, posted a .909 field goal percentage, which ranks third all-time in school history for a single-game performance.  The Buckeye junior also blocked four shots in the game, which gives her 251 for her career, just 17 swats shy of tying Penn State's Kim Calhoun (1993-96) for third all-time in Big Ten history.

Davenport's eight career weekly honors ties her for third all-time in conference annals with Minnesota's Carol Ann Shudlick (1991-94).  Fellow Golden Gopher Lindsay Whalen (2001-04) is second with nine career selections.
