Davis, 11th-ranked Badgers look to bounce back Thursday after Michigan St. loss
Johnny Davis and the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team looks to bounce back Thursday, after their seven-game win streak was snapped last week.
The Badgers dropped three spots to No. 11 in the nation, as they head to Nebraska (6-13) for a 4 p.m. matchup.
Davis, a La Crosse native, had 25 points, five rebounds and four assists last Friday for Wisconsin (15-3) in an 86-74 loss to then 14th-ranked Michigan State (15-4).
The Spartans moved up to No. 10 in the nation, then lost Tuesday night to 24th-ranked Illinois, 56-55.
Davis leads the Badgers this season in just about every stat category, including averaging 22.3 points, 7.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 2.3 turnovers per game.
Davis isn’t shooting great, though, at just 44.1% from the field and 38.9% from beyond the arc. That may be, however, based on Wisconsin’s need for him to score more so than Davis’ ability to shoot.
