Johnny Davis is getting “National Player of the Year” hype after his double-double (16 points, 15 rebounds) in No. 11 Wisconsin’s 66-60 Sunday win over Minnesota.

Prominent college basketball analyst Jeff Goodman said that he has Davis as the leader for National Player of the Year.

The Gophers gave the Badgers everything they could handle on Sunday. Davis took control down the stretch, scoring the final 6 points after Minnesota tied the game at 60-60. He also won a key rebound battle to snag his 15th board, a career-high.

Badger teammate Brad Davison called Davis the best player in the country.

Davis and the first-place Badgers continue the B1G grind at Illinois on Wednesday night.
