Wisconsin’s Frank Kaminsky The Target Of Shocking Kentucky Press Conference Comment

Frank Kaminsky At Center Of Shocking Kentucky Press Conference Comments

Wisconsin’s Frank Kaminsky is a hated man these days in Kentucky after he helped lead his Badgers over the Wildcats last night. However, that hatred may have been taken to the extreme after a microphone picked up a shocking off-the-cuff remark made by Kentucky’s Andrew Harrison.

According to FOX Sports, who posted a video of the press conference on their website, Harrison, a Wildcat guard, can clearly be heard muttering both a profanity and a slur under his breath when his teammate was asked about defending Kaminsky.

The AP meanwhile is reporting that Kentucky will look into the postgame comments made by Andrew. Harrison quickly took to Twitter to apologize to Frank “for my poor choice of words used in jest towards a player I respect and know.”

Ironically enough, Kaminsky’s own hatred toward Kentucky was recently uncovered by SB Nation this past weekend. The Wisconsin star posted the phrase “I hate Kentucky” to his Twitter page all the way back in in April of 2011.

Frank then took to Twitter this past week to commend the reporter who found the antagonistic tweet on his feed.

Regardless of whether there is any true animosity between Frank Kaminsky, Andrew Harrison or Kentucky and Wisconsin respectively, the fact is, the Badgers ended Kentucky’s quest for protection last night and have advanced to the championship game. Frank will lead his Badgers against the Duke Blue Devils, who defeated the Michigan State Spartans last night in a rout, 81-61. Justise Winslow led Duke with 19 points and nine rebounds, and Jahlil Okafor added 18 points on 7-of-11 shooting as the Blue Devils cruised for most of the game.

No word yet whether Frank Kaminsky or Andrew Harrison have any similar feelings toward Coach K’s club.
