Frank Kaminsky sets record straight on “NBA is boring” blog (exclusive)

Wisconsin Badgers big man Frank Kaminsky went from total obscurity to NBA Draft prospect last season. He dropped 43 points in one pre-conference game and ended the season with a Most Outstanding Player in an NCAA Regional award.

Frank Kaminsky named best returning player in College Basketball

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.

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

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...

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...
