Frank Kaminsky, Stanley Johnson forming Twitter friendship
Wisconsin forward Frank Kaminsky had a lighthearted exchange with Arizona freshman Stanley Johnson on Twitter on Thursday.
Using his full name, Francis Stanley Kaminsky, the Badgers star indicated that he had finished his undergraduate classes at Wisconsin (he reportedly still has to complete an independent study).

Johnson congratulated Kaminsky and remarked that his middle name, which Johnson knows well, is "great." Kaminsky responded with a tongue-in-cheek comment about his grandparents' foresight.
@StanMan_5 my great grandparents were psychics and knew that you would come along and be so great so they named us after you— Frank Kaminsky III (@FSKPart3) December 11, 2014
This is not the first time Kaminsky and Johnson have engaged on Twitter. In early November, Johnson tweeted a question "Jimmer In college or JJ Reddick," to which Kaminsky responded "Stanley Johnson #HesTheBest."
Later that month, Kaminsky made a comment about Johnson's post-dunk facial expression.
Kaminsky is considered a candidate for national player of the year awards, while Johnson is a former five-star recruit who is considered one of the top freshmen in the country.
The Wildcats won't face the Badgers in the regular season but could potentially meet in the NCAA Tournament. The two teams are ranked third and fifth, respectively, in the latest Associated Press poll.
