“I would like to thank my teammates and coaches for being able to help me be the player that I am and win this award,” Davis said in a statement. “None of this is possible without the unforgettable season that we had this year.”
Davis has already been named a consensus first-team All-American, the Big Ten Player of the Year, and was the recipient of the Lute Olson Player of the Year award. He averaged 19.7 points, 8.2 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.2 steals in 31 games as he helped lead the Badgers to a share of the Big 10 regular-season title.
