In what is surely music to the ears of every other Big Ten fan base, Brad Davison’s Wisconsin Badgers basketball career isn’t quite over yet! Davison will be participating in a trio of events at the men’s Final Four in New Orleans this weekend.
He will be competing in the State Farm College Slam Dunk & 3-Point Championships, the 2022 Dos Equis 3X3U National Championship, as well as the 2022 NABC Reese’s Division I College All-Star Game.
The three point and slam dunk contests will air live on ESPN at 8 p.m. CT on Thursday from Xavier University of Louisiana’s Convocation Center in New Orleans. While it might shock you that any player from the Badgers was selected to participate in a contest where making three pointers is the goal, here we are. The roster for the event has a heavy Big Ten flavor, featuring some old friends of ours:
Jordan Bohannon – Iowa
Brad Davison – Wisconsin
Drake Jeffries – Wyoming
Davion Mintz – Kentucky
Alex O’Connell – Creighton
Carl Pierre – Rice
Alfonso Plummer – Illinois
Sasha Stefonovic – Purdue
The All-Star Game, which takes place at the Superdome, will be broadcast live on Friday at 3:30 p.m. CT on CBS Sports Network.
Davison was also one of 64 players selected to compete in the 2022 Dos Equis 3X3U National Championship, scheduled for April 1-3 at The Sugar Mill in New Orleans. Representing all 32 Division I conferences and competing for their share of $150,000, athletes will be teaming up with other aspiring pro prospects from around the country.
Each conference will be paired with another, forming 16 four-man rosters that will be separated into four pools. Davison is one of four players that will be part of the Big Ten/MAC (#B1GMACtion) team. The #B1GMACtion squad is in Pool D which contains these other teams:
Summit/OVC (Summit Valley Oop’n)
Big 12/Southland (Southwest Souljas)
Big Ten/MAC (#B1GMACtion)
Big East/A-10 (Beast Coast Ballers)
Davison’s teammates are Daeqwon Plowden, G/F, from Bowling Green, Payton Willis, G, out of Minnesota and John Harrar, F, from Penn State.
