La Crosse’s Davis looks for 4th straight 20-point game, as No. 23 Badgers face Georgia Tech
La Crosse native Johnny Davis looks to continue his streak of 20-point games, as the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team is at Georgia Tech as part of the annual Big Ten/ACC Challenge on Wednesday.
The sophomore set a career high in points (30) and tied his high in 3-pointers, going 4-for-7, last week as Wisconsin beat No. 12 Houston.
That helped the Badgers jump into the Top 25 rankings, now sitting at 23rd in the nation.
In four games this season, the 6-foot-5 Davis, leads Wisconsin in averaging 20.2 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 2.0 steals. He also leads the team in turnovers a game at 1.6.
The only game Davis missed is the Badgers only loss — 63-58 to Providence, which is now 6-1 and starting to receive Top 25 votes in the coaches poll.
Both Wisconsin and Georgia Tech are 5-1. The game is on ESPN2, beginning at 8:15 p.m.
