The Big Ten office released its Big Ten Men’s Basketball Players of the Week on Monday. To no surprise, Wisconsin junior Frank Kaminsky took home Player of the Week. Kaminsky scored a Wisconsin single-game record 43 points vs. North Dakota and averaged 26 points and 4.7 rebounds in three games.
There were two Big Ten men’s basketball games on Saturday. Wisconsin kicked off the evening with a 76-67 win over Oral Roberts. Michigan State capped off the action, defeating Oklahoma 87-76 en route to winning the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic Tournament.
There were five Big Ten men’s basketball games on Thursday, including Wisconsin’s impressive 88-64 win over Bowling Green. The Badgers had six players score in double figures, led by Ben Brust, who had a game-high 19 points. This is the first time Wisconsin has had back-to-back 80-plus point games since December, 2012.
Wisconsin junior Frank Kaminsky has seen his popularity grow at a rapid pace after the Badgers’ big man posted a school-record 43 points in a 103-85 victory over North Dakota Tuesday night at the Kohl Center.
