Welcome to the first of my new series, Behind the Jersey Numbers. We'll be counting down the days until Wisconsin basketball tips off by giving you some number crunching content. I hope you enjoy the series, and join me counting down the days until Badger hoops!
With 44 days until the Wisconsin Basketball team opens up it's season at the Kohl Center against Southeastern Louisiana, today we'll look at #44, Sophomore Frank Kaminsky.
Kaminsky played in 35 of 36 games in the 2011-12 season. The only contest he didn't see the floor in was Wisconsin's' 63-60 overtime loss at the Kohl Center. Only 7 players played in that game, including starting power forward Ryan Evans, who played in all 40 minutes. If he stays healthy, Kaminsky will likely see the floor in every game this season as the Badgers' backup big man. If either Ryan Evans or center Jared Berggren miss time due to injury or anything else, Kaminsky will have to step up and fill in.
