    AUBURN, Ala. -- Sherell Hobbs scored six of her 23 points in overtime to lift No. 20 Auburn to an 87-80 win over Ohio State (No. 18 ESPN/USA Today, No. 17 AP) on Sunday.

    Hobbs had a steal and layup with 54 seconds left in the extra period to seal the win for the Tigers (4-0). She also finished with eight rebounds and four steals and hit back-to-back baskets to spark a 6-0 run in OT that Ohio State (3-1) never overcame.

    Alli Smalley also had 23 points, including hitting five 3-pointers. DeWanna Bonner added 17 points, 11 rebounds and four blocked shots for Auburn while Whitney Boddie had 14 points and 11 assists.

    Jantel Lavender led Ohio State (3-1) with 20 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists. Star Allen had 18 points and Samantha Prahalis scored 15, but also committed seven turnovers.

    Auburn, which led by 11 points early in the second half, forced overtime on Smalley's 3-pointer with 25 seconds left. Prahalis missed an off-balance jumper in the final seconds for Ohio State and Boddie's desperation heave missed.

    Ohio State had grabbed a six-point lead after overcoming the double-digit deficit. The Buckeyes then went just 2-for-7 shooting in overtime while Auburn was 6-for-9.
