Another solid performance from La Crosse native Jonathan Davis for the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team in beating No. 21 Minnesota on Thursday.

The freshman, Davis, had eight points, three rebounds, a steal and a turnover in 30 minutes, as the No. 6 Badgers beat Minnesota at Williams Arena 71-59.

Check out the steal and the jam here from Davis.

Davis was 4-for-7 from the field in 30 minutes — the second-most minutes on Wisconsin (9-2, 3-1 Big Ten).

The Badgers are 8-2 against the Gophers in their last 10 meetings.

The Gophers (9-2, 2-2) were coming off a blowout victory over No. 17 Michigan State 51-59, and an overtime win over No. 4 Iowa 102-95 on Christmas.

The Badgers had just beaten MSU 85-76 on Christmas, but then were upset 70-64 to Maryland on Monday.

Up next for Wisconsin is a trip to Penn State for an 11 a.m. tip Sunday. Minnesota plays at No. 25 Ohio State the same day, beginning at 4:30 p.m.
