Frank the Tank’s run comes to end with Wisconsin loss
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — It’s over for Frank the Tank.
Frank Kaminsky’s remarkable career at Wisconsin ended with a 68-63 loss Monday night in the NCAA Tournament national title game against Duke.
The double-double machine finished with 21 points and 12 boards.
But a couple late-game mistakes by the usually savvy senior hurt the Badgers.
He threw up an errant shot as the shot clock wound down with 2:39 left in the game.
Kaminsky got beat by Duke freshman phenom center Jahlil Okafor with 3:14 left for a layup in the middle of the Blue Devil’s second-half surge, right after the big guy missed his own layup off a spin move.
The AP Player of the Year walked back to his bench with hands on his head as young Blue Devils started celebrating at midcourt.
