Interesting fallout from last night's Wisconsin win over Kentucky. In the post-game, UK guard Andrew Harrison uttered "Screw the African American" in reference to Wisconsin ace center Frank Kaminsky. Of course, that is bowdlerized, as Harrison dropped F and N bombs on "Frank the Tank."
If you're not a basketball fan, it's worth noting that Kaminsky is not of African descent, at least not enough to show on radar. Last night's match-up was almost a photo-negative of the 1966 title game, where an all-white Kentucky team lost to a Texas Western (now UTEP) team with an all-black starting five. In 2015, UK had an all-black (or at least with some African background, for a couple of players seemed well blended) rotation and Wisconsin only had two blacks in their rotation, a very rare lack of color on a modern Final Four team.
The "slur" from Harrison might well have been a left-handed complement, making Kaminsky an honorary black guy. The two talked later and Frank is "over it." White guys aren't supposed to be athletic in a modern basketball setting, but that bunch of melanin-challenged cheeseheads managed to outplay a bevy of lottery picks last night.
