Wisconsin's Frank Kaminsky sets school record with 43 points
Wisconsin big man Frank Kaminsky set a school record on Tuesday, scoring 43 points. It's the single-game high in college hoops this season.
The 7-foot junior set a school record by scoring 43 points in a 103-85 win over North Dakota on Tuesday.
Kaminsky shot 16-for-18 from the field, 6-for-6 from 3-point range, and 5-for-6 from the free-throw line. His previous career-high was 19 points, which came last season against Illinois.
He is also now the single-game scoring leader in college basketball this season. Three players had reached 38 points this season, but Kaminsky is the first to notch at least 40 in a game.
With Wisconsin losing all three frontcourt starters from last season, Bo Ryan needed some of his bench players to step up this year. Sam Dekker was a lock to improve his numbers, but Kaminsky has also picked up the slack. After starting slow, with only 10 points and eight rebounds in his first two games, Kaminsky had 16 points and eight boards in a win over Green Bay this past weekend. And, of course, the 43 points on Tuesday.
Interestingly enough, North Dakota’s Troy Huff was on fire as well, but he finished with 37 – falling short of Kaminsky and the Badgers.
