LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) -- La Crosse Central senior Johnny Davis has won Wisconsin Associated Press player of the year honors. Davis was aiming for a WIAA Division 2 state championship this season. But the University of Wisconsin commit didn't get the chance to make that happen. Davis helped Central beat the state's No. 1 team in a sectional semifinal before the season was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic. The 6-foot-5 forward averaged 27.2 points and 9.2 rebounds per game for the Red Raiders. AP coach of the year honors go to longtime Cuba City coach Jerry Petitgoue.
