La Crosse native Jonathan Davis had seven points, six rebounds off the bench, as the Wisconsin men’s basketball team opened Big Ten Conference play with a win.

The ninth-ranked Badgers were led by Brad Davison’s 15 points in a 67-53 win over Nebraska at the Kohl Center on Monday.

Davis played 24 minutes, going 3-for-7 from the field. Three of his rebounds were offensive. It was, however, the first time Davis didn’t record a block or a steal in a game.

The Badgers (7-1, 1-0) opened the game just 1 of 16 from the field, went scoreless for almost eight minutes and had just three points in the first 11 minutes.

All that, but only trailed by 10. They took a 25-24 halftime lead and outscored the Cornhuskers (4-4, 0-1) 42-29 in the second half.

Nebraska shot just 33% from the field and 53% from the free-throw line (9 of 17). The Badgers shot 40% and hit all 15 of their free throws.

Davis is sixth on the team in scoring at 7.9 a game. He’s shooting 46.3% from the field (25 of 54), including 4-for-9 from deep. The 6-foot-5 freshman is also averaging 5.1 rebounds, 1.3 assists and a combined 2.3 blocks/steals.
