Basketball in Wisconsin shocked fans both in the Midwest and across the country this week, as it traveled to Las Vegas and beat Texas A&M, No. 12 Houston and Saint Mary’s en route to a Maui Invitational win.
The story of the tournament was the relentlessness of Jonathan Davis and Wisconsin on the defensive side of the field. Greg Gard’s team didn’t think they had a chance to beat a team of Houston’s caliber, but thanks to Davis and Tyler Wahl’s ability on the offensive side and a team-wide effort, the Badgers shocked the college basketball world and made a run to the title.
