Tuesday night was Frank Kaminsky Night. The Wisconsin junior erupted for a program single-game record 43 points in a 103-85 victory over North Dakota at the Kohl Center. Kaminsky was on fire all night, making 16-of-19 attempts (84 percent), including all six 3-point attempts.
Now, for a little perspective: The 43 points were one more than the previous Wisconsin record, held by Ken Barnes (1965 vs. Indiana) and Michael Finley (1994 vs. Eastern Michigan).
Maybe even more impressive, the 43 points were as many as Wisconsin scored as a team twice last season. They also were only five fewer than he scored during conference play last season.
Relive the record-setting bucket:
And Kaminsky’s other highlights:
Also, here are some Kaminsky tweets from around the Big Ten:
