Wisconsin Badgers center Frank Kaminsky on Friday became the first Badgers men's basketball player to earn the Oscar Robertson Trophy as the U.S. Basketball Writers Association Player of the Year.

Kaminsky received the award from Robertson, who is considered one of the greatest all-around players in basketball history.

The presentation was made in Indianapolis where Kaminsky and the Badgers play in the Final Four game Saturday night against Kentucky. This marks their second straight Final Four appearance. The team lost a close game to Kentucky last year.

WXOW's coverage of the Badgers at the Final Four continues Friday evening in at 5, 6, and 10. Scott Emerich will have live reports from Indianapolis.
