Dienhart: Frank Kaminsky, in his prep coach's words

It has been fun for fans to watch Frank Kaminsky emerge this year and during Wisconsin’s run to the Final Four. But there’s one guy who isn’t shocked by all of this: Gene Heidkamp, Kaminsky’s high school coach at Benet Academy in Lisle, Ill. Heidkamp was the one who molded Kaminsky, honing those passing skills, shooting touch and low-post moves at the prep level.

Young Bo Ryan had some style. Bow tie and plaid pants style. #Badgers — Jordan Schelling (@jordanschelling) March 31, 2014 We’re not sure what year this photo was taken, howver it’s funny how much Ryan’s style has changed.

Take a look back at Frank Kaminsky, the 3-star recruit

Wisconsin big man Frank Kaminsky may be the most unlikely star among the players that will gather for the Final Four this weekend in North Texas. The Badgers will play No. 8 Kentucky on Saturday in a national semifinal game. And Kaminsky will be a key player for Wisconsin as it deals with a big and talented Wildcats squad that seems to be harnessing all of its talent at the perfect time. Bottom line: This is the type of story you can’t make up. [ MORE: View our top 15 most-watched Wisconsin clips | Badgers, behind-the-scenes ] Coming out of

Big Ten Geeks: Narrative no more

Up until Saturday, plenty of college basketball fans appreciated Bo Ryan’s coaching ability in a patronizing, half-insulting kind of way. Yes, he’s a fantastic Big Ten coach, that much is beyond dispute. But… This statistically-bland fact fed all sorts of terrible sports narratives. Bo Ryan can’t get to the Final Four because he doesn’t recruit enough talent. Bo Ryan can’t get to the Final Four because his slow-down style of basketball is a parlor trick exposed by elite teams. Bo Ryan can’t get to the Final Four because referees outside the Big Ten don’t fall for his sideline pleas and
