Davenport scored 22 points and grabbed 12 rebounds as eighth-ranked Ohio State captured its eighth straight win with a 70-42 Big Ten Conference victory over Northwestern.

Star Allen had 18 points and Ashlee Trebilcock added nine for Ohio State, which shot 60.9 percent (14-of-23) from the floor in the first half to grab a 39-23 lead at the break. That advantage continued to grow as the Buckeyes finished 50 percent (27-of-54).

Julie Bielawski scored 11 points and Sara Stutz 10 for Northwestern (6-12, 0-5), which was outrebounded, 45-25, in losing its 10th straight league contest dating to last season.
