After shocking the sporting world by upsetting undefeated Kentucky to head to the NCAA Championship, Wisconsin star Frank Kaminsky was the subject of a serious slur by Kentucky G Andrew Harrison – which Harrison has since apologized for.
In a post-game interview following the Wildcats’ 64-71 upset loss to the Badgers, Harrison mumbled the phrase “F— that n—–” into an open mic. (Knowingly or unknowingly remains unclear). The clip – which has gone viral already – is viewable below. (WARNING: Explicit language)
But after making the comments directed at Kaminsky, Harrison apologized for his language and said that it was all in jest and that he respects Kaminsky greatly.
First i want to apologize for my poor choice of words used in jest towards a player I respect and know.

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 — Andrew Harrison (@DrewRoc5) April 5, 2015
We had a good conversation and I wished him good luck in the championship game Monday. — Andrew Harrison (@DrewRoc5) April 5, 2015
Harrison can complain all he wants, but it doesn’t erase the fact that star F Willie Caulie-Stein was held to just two points in the game despite playing 33 minutes. Harrison and his twin brother Aaron put up a combined 25 points, but it wasn’t enough to withstand Kaminsky and Sam Dekker.
The Wisconsin Badgers will play the Duke Blue Devils in the NCAA Tournament Final on Monday.
