Brad Davison took a few weeks to think about his future at Wisconsin, and he’s come to a decision.

On Wednesday, Davison announced that he will take advantage of the NCAA’s additional year of eligibility for winter student-athletes and will return to Wisconsin for one more year. He will be a fifth-year senior for the Badgers in the 2021-22 season.

“After taking some time to reflect, there is no place I would rather be than Madison!” Davison wrote. “Being a Badger is a privilege. I am grateful for one last ride with my coaches and teammates this upcoming season! I would not want to go out any other way than playing in front of Badger Nation at the Kohl Center.”

Davison has played in 128 career games at Wisconsin, making 124 starts in four seasons. He’s averaging 10.6 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.0 steals per game during his time in Madison.

Last season, Davison started all 31 games for the Badgers and averaged 10 points per game.

Davison’s return is big news for Wisconsin, which saw a ton of talent from the 2020-21 season move on. D’Mitrik Trice, Aleem Ford, Micah Potter and Nate Reuvers all decided to move on after last season, leaving the Badgers with a lack of experience on the court.

Having started nearly every game in his career at Wisconsin, Davison will be a factor on both ends of the floor and provide the experience and leadership Greg Gard’s team will desperately need next season.
