It turns out Wisconsin forward Frank Kaminsky hated Kentucky back in high school.
Wisconsin doesn't need any extra motivation heading into Saturday's Final Four matchup with Kentucky after the Wildcats ended their season at the same stage a year ago, but it turns out Badgers senior Frank Kaminsky has had his for a while.
Someone recently dug up a tweet Kaminsky sent as a senior in high school that made his feelings about the school from Lexington quite clear. The tweet then started going viral.
I hate Kentucky— Hippo Kaminsky III (@FSKPart3) April 23, 2011
The forward was alerted to the resurgence of his tweet on Wednesday morning and was quite impressed someone went through all that trouble.
Lol I wanna know who spent the time to go back to my tweets from 2011 (my senior year in high school) just to find that. Actually impressed— Hippo Kaminsky III (@FSKPart3) April 2, 2015
Kaminsky and Wisconsin would love to see Kentucky's season end the same way it did in 2011, just a few weeks before he made his original tweet. The Wildcats lost to Connecticut in the Final Four that year.
