Davis played 17 minutes for the 13th-ranked Badgers (4-1), going 2-for-5 from the field, 0-for-1 from deep and 2 of 2 from the free-throw line.
The 6-foot-5 guard was coming off a career-high 12 points in the buzzer-beating loss to Marquette.
The freshman is sixth on the team, averaging 7.4 points, along with
4.8 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.0 block per game.
Despite shooting just 10-for-30 in the first half, Wisconsin was up 33-16 heading into the locker room.
The Badgers were led by Brad Davison’s 23 points. He was 12-for-12 from the line, while Micah Potter added 13 points, seven rebounds.
The teams combined for 48 fouls.
