But lately, the 6-foot-9 sophomore has lost a little sizzle on the offensive end, averaging just 6.0 points over his last six games. Davis scored six points on 2-of-7 shooting in Sunday's 62-54 victory over Iowa.

"He's just not getting shots right now," Frazier said. "We got to find a way to get him some more shots and get his confidence going ... Mike's got to get back to running the floor, finding open spots and hitting his little turnaround jump shot."
