    Packer takes over in OT as Indiana upsets No. 20 Ohio State

    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) -- Jamie Braun scored 19 points, including two clinching free throws with 39 seconds left in overtime, to help Indiana beat Ohio State (No. 20 ESPN/USA Today, No. 18 AP) 69-61 on Monday night.

    The Hoosiers (16-12, 9-7 Big Ten) snapped an eight-game losing streak to the Buckeyes (20-7, 11-5) and avenged a 71-59 loss at Columbus last month, when Braun scored a season-high 25 points.

    This time, Indiana had a huge advantage in free throws but couldn't put Ohio State away in regulation.

    Two foul shots by Kim Roberson gave Indiana a 54-52 lead in the final minute of regulation, but a layup by Jantel Lavender with 29 seconds to go tied the game and sent it to overtime.

    Marscilla Packer had all of the Buckeyes' points in the extra period, including two free throws, a 3-pointer and another field goal that gave them their final lead at 61-60 with 2:20 remaining.

    Roberson, who finished with 15 points, then put Indiana ahead for good. She added one of two free throws and Jori Davis scored, stole the ball and hit two more free throws for a 67-61 lead. After Packer missed a layup, Braun hit the final two free throws to seal the victory.

    Indiana was 21-for-24 from the free-throw line. Ohio State was just 6-for-8.

    Whitney Thomas added 14 points and Davis finished with 11 for the Hoosiers. Tamarah Riley led Ohio State with 15 points and 16 rebounds, while Packer finished with 14 points and Lavender added 10 points.
