Frank Kaminsky Is Over Andrew Harrison's Slur

Wisconsin star only looking forward to national title game.

Published April 6, 2015

Wisconsin star Frank Kaminsky's full focus is on Monday night's national championship game against Duke — not Kentucky guard Andrew Harrison's remark about him.

After Wisconsin dashed Kentucky's perfect season quest Saturday night via a 71-64 win, Harrison was caught on a hot mic at the postgame press conference muttering "F**k that n***a" when a reporter asked about Kaminsky.

But that same night, Harrison made it a point to get in touch with Kaminsky and the Associated Press Player of the Year is over it.


"He reached out to me, we talked about it, [I'm] over it," Kaminsky told reporters Saturday, as reported by ESPN. "Nothing needs to be made out of it."

Harrison also made a public apology on his Twitter account Sunday morning.

"First I want to apologize for my poor choice of words used in jest towards a player I respect and know," Harrison tweeted about Kaminsky. "When I realized how this could be perceived I immediately called big Frank to apologize and let him know I didn't mean any disrespect. We had a good conversation and I wished him good luck in the championship game Monday."

With Saturday night's loss, Kentucky (38-1) suffered its first and only defeat of the 2014-15 season, failing to get back to the national championship game.
