Kaminsky standing tall in junior year, leads team in scoring

Posted:

MADISON, WI (WKOW) -- At seven feet tall, University of Wisconsin men's basketball forward Frank Kaminsky could never really hide from the spotlight. But in his junior year, Kaminsky is emerging from the shadows as a true impact player.

Kaminsky leads the team in scoring, averaging 15 points. Against North Dakota he broke the school's single-game scoring record, putting up 43 points, including hitting 6 of 6 three-pointers.

"I didn't want to come in this year and be the weak link on the court, maybe like I've been in the past," Kaminsky said.

Last year, the seven-footer averaged just over 4 points and 1.8 rebounds per game as a sophomore.

"I feel like I'm more comfortable with the ball in my hands than I was in past years," Kaminsky said.

His previous single-game record was 19 points, set at Illinois last season.

The Badgers are off to their best start in twenty years, and best under head coach Bo Ryan, at 9-0.
