The Lisle, Ill. native, who enjoyed an efficient 11-for-20 shooting night, was the only UW player in any kind of rhythm in a game in which the other four Badgers starters went shot a combined 29 percent from the field. It turned out that he was all Wisconsin would need.
“Kaminsky made some great plays,” said Sean Miller, Arizona’s coach. “He’s a difficult match‑up. Got to be one of the best offensive players who plays college basketball, for sure. We knew that, and that’s why we tried to have the game plan that we had. Obviously, it was almost as if he had a big night and we tried to shut everybody else down.”
