Frank Kaminsky named best returning player in College Basketball

Wisconsin basketball is riding a wave of unprecedented popularity following its run to the 2014 Final Four. However, pundits haven’t always been in love with the Badgers and so when CBS Sports’ Seth Davis named UW’s own Frank Kaminsky as the best returning player in College Basketball it was a little more than surprising. Kaminsky returning surprised some, including Davis....

Wisconsin Basketball: Duke visits Wisconsin for ACC/Big Ten challenge

Wisconsin's Frank Kaminsky returning next season

Wisconsin Head Coach Bo Ryan is probably somewhere smiling right now. The Badgers will get big man Frank Kaminsky back for next season. Here is what he told Jeff Goodman: “It was a tough decision, but I think the best thing for me is to stay another year and develop even more.

Wisconsin Basketball: Aftermath of a Final Four loss

Emotions are at their purest once everything is sacrificed. Whether it’s the glory of victory, or anguish of defeat; one can truly understand these feelings once everything is invested. In sports, the greatest moments are created not just by the plays themselves, but by the reactions of the world around them. That’s why we love it; thats why I love it. I may be a microcosm in...

Crazily, Kaminsky has become face of Badgers, tournament

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The only word Frank Kaminsky can muster that adequately describes the past week of his life is "crazy," which barely seems to do his rise to near rock-star status justice. Owning the paint against Baylor's 7-foot-1 center Isaiah Austin with 19 points and six blocks in the Sweet 16? Crazy. Dominating Arizona's future NBA frontcourt with 28 points...

Wisconsin Basketball: Bo Ryan captures his Final Four

Alas, Bo Ryan has joined the ranks of the college basketball’s best. It only took him 13 years but hey, patience is a virtue. That patience of his sure was tested Saturday, as 40 minutes wasn’t enough to decide UW’s fate. After an added five minutes of cardio nightmare, Bo finally came to relief knowing that he had finally taken the Wisconsin Badgers to the Final Four. Bo...

Kaminsky's huge strides leading Badgers' late surge

MADISON, Wis. -- When Frank Kaminsky arrived as a freshman at Wisconsin two years ago, he much preferred shooting a 3-pointer to banging in the post. The perimeter is not where you'd expect to find most 7-footers, and though Kaminsky's shooting touch was better than most, having an inside presence was an area he needed to improve to become an elite Big Ten big man. Much of...

Kaminsky had to treat eye injury carefully

MADISON, Wis. One minute, Frank Kaminsky was drilling consecutive 3-pointers against the No. 2-ranked college basketball team in the nation. The next minute, he couldn't even play after his left eye had been inadvertently poked by a stray finger from Indiana guard Will Sheehey in the battle for a rebound.In the blink of an eye pardon the pun Wisconsin's backup center had...

Badgers Kaminsky is a model of versatility

MADISON, Wis. There were times during his high school season last year when Frank Kaminsky found himself serving as Benet Academy's emergency point guard in key late-game situations. And while that might not sound like much to those who have never seen Frank Kaminsky, the sight of a 6-foot-11 center bringing the ball up court and directing the offense is most unusual at any...
