LAS VEGAS, NV (WFRV) – The Wisconsin Badgers men’s basketball team finishes off the Maui Invitational in fine form, beating St. Mary’s College 61-55 to win the entire tournament.

Johnny Davis had himself a game, scoring 20 points, 1 steal and 7 rebounds.

The Badgers and the Gaels were in a back and forth battle in the first half, trading buckets left and right, no one ever getting more than a 5 point lead. Then with a little over 3 minutes left in the 1st half, Dan Fontu made a three for SMC and at half, the Gaels lead 31-25.

Second half, the Badgers fight tooth and nail to retake the lead, and they do so off a Johnny Davis three-pointer.

Badgers are now 5-1 on the season.
