Davison has played injured since he initially dislocated his shoulder on Nov. 20 against Baylor, and he’s since dislocated it three other times this season. But in each instance, the medical staff “popped” his shoulder back into place, and Davison returned to game action.
Despite the injury, Davison was one of the best freshman in the Big Ten this season. Davison, a three-star recruit from Minnesota, made the conference’s All-Freshman team after averaging 12.3 points and 2.5 assists in more than 31.2 minutes.
He emerged as a rare bright spot for Wisconsin (15-18, 7-11 Big Ten), which will not make the NCAA Tournament this season after 19 straight appearances.
Luckily for the Badgers, Davison said he will not miss any time next year.
