Brad Davison Needs To Control His Emotions Tonight
Wisconsin Badgers guard Brad Davison is one of the most hated players in college basketball. I don’t know him, but I bet he would not have it any other way. Davison is heading into a buzzsaw tonight. Wisconsin takes on NC State in a much-anticipated rematch tonight in Raleigh, North Carolina. NC State fans are going to be out for blood. They have not forgotten Davison taking five charges in one game with some of them being questionable calls.
The montage of all *FIVE* "charges"!!!!
Devon Daniels extended his arm. GTFO with the rest.

Davison has dealt with this before during his career at Wisconsin with Western Kentucky. The results were mixed. Davison had a huge game at Western Kentucky last season with 26 points in a losing effort, but the fans got to Davison. He took a passive-aggressive Midwest shot at them calling the game, ‘their Super Bowl.’ But the Hilltoppers wanted to send a message to Davison and Wisconsin for how that game ended. NC State is going to want to do the same.
NC State will be a different animal. Western Kentucky’s arena size is 7,000+ while NC State plays in a 19,000+ arena. That place will hail boos down to Davison. Add the fact that the game starts at 9:15 pm, fans will be in their cups, to say the least. He likes to play in these types of games, but the rest of his team needs to join him with that. All of them should remember what happened at Western Kentucky last season, and Badgers need to do their best to avoid getting caught up in everything as the Badgers desperately need a win.
This is a must-win for Wisconsin. They’re staring down a potential three-game non-conference losing streak. This would be the second time in three years that has happened after being 16 years since it happened last.
