Off to See the Wizards
Johnny Davis x’24 enters the NBA as the number-10 overall pick.
The Washington Wizards scooped up Badger basketball star Johnny Davis x’24 with the number 10 overall pick in the 2022 NBA draft, making him the first UW player drafted in the first round since 2015 and the 10th in history. The sophomore from La Crosse, Wisconsin, helped the team win a share of the Big Ten championship last spring and was named the conference’s Player of the Year. We’ll miss Davis’s competitive fire at the Kohl Center but can’t wait to see how far it takes him in the pros.
