La Crosse native Johnny Davis should be good to go Monday, as the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team opens at 1 p.m. with Texas A&M in the Maui Invitational.

The eight-team tournament is being played in Las Vegas this year due to COVID-19 concerns.

It features No. 12 Oregon, No. 15 Houston, Butler, Chaminade, St. Mary’s and Notre Dame.

Davis missed last game, a 63-58 loss to Providence, with a bruised heel. He said he initially feared the injury was worse, but X-rays came back negative last week.

The 6-fooot-5 sophomore is averaging 15 points — shooting just 35.5% from the field and 22.2% from beyond the arc — 4.0 rebounds and leading Wisconsin with 3.5 assists per game.

The Badgers will play Tuesday against either Butler or Houston, depending on which teams win.
