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).

Last OSU POW:  Star Allen (2/5/07)
