La Crosse’s Jonathan Davis had seven points, four rebounds as the the 19th-ranked University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team lost to No. 12 Illinois 75-60 on Saturday at the Kohl Center.
Davis was coming off a career game, setting highs in points, field goals made, 3-pointers, steals … and turnovers.
Saturday, though, was the second game of the season the freshman went without a block or a steal.
Davis was 3-for-6 from the field and 1-for-1 from beyond the arc in 26 minutes — the third-most minutes on the team. He’s now made his last five 3-pointers, after going 0-for-8 before that.
Wisconsin (14-6, 8-5 Big Ten) was down 36-23 at halftime and shot just 16.7% from beyond the arc (4 of 24). The Badgers also had 11 turnovers, though Illinois (13-5, 9-3) had 18.
Illini guard Ayo Dosunmu had a triple-double with 21 points, 12 rebounds and 12 assists. He also had seven turnovers.
At 4 p.m. Thursday, Wisconsin next plays at Nebraska. The game will be on ESPN2.
