The Cardinal had a 75-73 lead when Davenport converted a bank shot in traffic with 1.3 seconds to play, sending the game to overtime.

Ariel Atkins had a key 3-pointer in the extra period as Texas (2-0) outscored Stanford 12-6 in the extra period. Brady Sanders and Brooke McCarty each had a big jumper for the Longhorns in OT.
