The University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team looks to end its freefall tonight on the road at Ohio State.
The Badgers (12-8) have lost three consecutive games and six of their last seven.
During that seven-game stretch, La Crosse native Jordan Davis has also struggled. He’s come off the bench two of the last four games — the junior started every other game this season.
Davis did set a career high with 15 points, but he’s scored five or less in the other six games, including going scoreless in half of them.
Davis shot 6 of 10 from the field and 3-for-6 from beyond the arc in that career-high, 15-point effort. In the other six games, however, he’s shot 16.6 percent from the field (4 of 24) and 13.3 percent from deep (2 of 15)
For the season, Davis is averaging 6.1 points on 38-percent shooting to go with 4.0 rebounds in 25.4 minutes a game.
While Wisconsin has struggled, so have Buckeyes (11-10), having lost seven of their last eight — though that streak began with a two-point loss to No. 1 Purdue, and three of those other losses came by four points or less.
