Johnny Davis named to midseason Wooden Award top 25 list

The college basketball world has seen Johnny Davis lately and they are taking notice.

The star Wisconsin Badger from La Crosse is one of 25 players named to the midseason list for the Wooden Award, the most prestigious award in the sport.

Davis is third in the nation in points per game (22.3) and is the first Badger to make this list since Ethan Happ in 2019. Only one Badger has ever won the Wooden Award, Frank Kaminsky in 2015.

You don’t have to be on this midseason Top 25 list to end up winning the award, but it’s a good indicator.
