COLUMBUS, OHIO — Things were going well for No. 16 Oklahoma until Brandie Hoskins broke out of her slump and Jessica Davenport hit the shot.
Davenport made a turnaround jumper with 3.4 seconds left to give No. 8 Ohio State a 75-71 victory over No. 16 Oklahoma on Monday night in the Big Ten/Big 12 Challenge.
"When I got the ball, I turned in my shoulder and I didn't imagine a defender on me," Davenport said. "I practice that shot every day. I just took my time and made it."
Hoskins scored 16 points - all in the second half - to lead the Buckeyes. Davenport finished with 15, as did Marscilla Packer. Debbie Merrill added 12 points and nine rebounds, holding her own underneath.
