Jessica Davenport, Ohio State
Sr., 6-5, C, Columbus, Ohio/Independence
Davenport led the Buckeyes to their third consecutive Big Ten title with two performances of 25 points or more this past week. Last Thursday, the two-time defending Big Ten Player of the Year netted 26 points at home against Penn State on 10-of-18 (.556) shooting. She added eight rebounds, four assists and one block in the effort, which enabled the Buckeyes to earn a share of the conference title. Davenport then led OSU to the outright championship on Sunday with a 26-point, 15-rebound performance at Michigan - her 46th career double-double. For the week, Davenport averaged 25.5 points on 17-of-30 (.567) shooting, as well as 11.5 rebounds 2.5 assists and 1.5 blocks.
This is her fifth weekly honor this season and the 13th of her career, which is second all-time behind the 17 of Penn State's Kelly Mazzante (2001-04).
