Wisconsin Badgers guard Brad Davison has ‘successful’ surgery to repair shoulder
Three days after his freshman season with the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team ended, Brad Davison underwent surgery to repair his injured left shoulder Monday.
On its Twitter account, the program provided an update on the surgery and said that it was “successful,” according to Dr. John Orwin, one of the team’s physicians.
Davison dislocated his shoulder during a game against Baylor on Nov. 20. He was back in the lineup the next night against UCLA, the first of 29 consecutive starts to end the season despite the fact he re-injured his shoulder five other times in games.
UW assistant coach Joe Krabbenhoft visited Davison following the surgery and tweeted a picture of the two of them along with Krabbenhoft’s two sons.
“This kid was a warrior for us all year long! Never flinched, never complained, never felt sorry for himself,” Krabbenhoft said.
Davison played a team-high 1,028 minutes and finished as UW’s second-leading scorer, averaging 12.1 points while shooting 81.8 percent from the free throw line and connecting a team-high 60 times from 3-point range.
He was named to the Big Ten’s All-Freshman team.
