Wisconsin Badgers fans: #BeFrank and help vote Frank Kaminsky for the Naismith Player of the Year Trophy.
Kaminsky, the Wisconsin Badgers’ star senior forward, was announced as one of the four finalists for the Naismith Award last week. Kaminsky joins an impressive group of college players as finalists: Duke’s Jahlil Okafor, Notre Dame’s Jerian Grant, and Kentucky’s Willie Cauley-Stein.
Kaminsky averages 18.4 points and 8.2 rebounds per game, and has led Wisconsin into the Sweet Sixteen for the second straight year after wins against the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers and the Oregon Ducks.
Many consider him the frontrunner for the award, and considering everything from his stats to his versatility to his personality, he’s a favorite for a reason.
For the 11th year in a row, fans have a say in who wins the player of the year award.
