NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- Jessica Davenport made Courtney Paris work for her 38th consecutive double-double. She wouldn't let her escape with the win, too.Marscilla Packer scored 15 points and Davenport added 14 points and 10 rebounds to lead No. 8 Ohio State to a 74-67 victory over No. 3 Oklahoma on Wednesday night in a matchup of two of the country's best centers.The Buckeyes (10-1) overcame Paris' 22 points and 13 rebounds to end a 23-game regular-season winning streak for the Sooners (9-1) that was the longest in the country.While Paris had the more impressive stat line, Davenport got the last laugh for the second straight season. The preseason Big Ten player of the year hit two free throws with 7:15 left to give Ohio State the lead for good. Last season, it took a turnaround jumper with 3.4 seconds left for Davenport to push her team to a 75-71 victory against Oklahoma."Everybody had one main goal, and that was to win the game," Davenport said.
