Davis was 4-for-7 from the field and 4 of 4 from the line. The 6-5 freshman guard also had six rebounds and a steal in 30 minutes off the bench — the second-most minutes for Wisconsin.

In four games, Davis is now averaging 7.8 points and is second on the team at 5.3 rebounds in 22.0 minutes.

He’s shooting 42.9% from the field (12 of 28, including 1-for-4 from beyond the arc) and is 6 of 7 from the line.
