Frank “The Tank” Kaminsky was virtually unstoppable around the rim, scoring 29 points using many spins and up-and-under moves to dominate the Arizona frontcourt, which was in continual foul trouble.
But it was the hot shooting of teammate Sam Dekker, who scored a career high 27 points, including 5 dagger like, timely 3 point shots down the stretch, to set up a rematch with the Kentucky Wildcats in next weekend’s Final Four.
Junior forward Sam Dekker may be playing the best basketball of his collegiate career at just the right time, scoring a then previous career high 23 points and 10 boards vs North Carolina in the Sweet 16. Dekker and Kaminsky form arguably one of the hardest to guard duos in the college game.
Frank Kaminsky joins Paul Pierce as the only players with multiple 20-point games against Arizona in the NCAA Tournament, while Dekker is shooting a ridiculous 13-27(.481%) from behind the arc in the NCAA Tournament.
Kaminsky also became Wisconsin’s all-time leading scorer in the NCAA Tournament, and Sam Dekker is two points from passing Alando Tucker for 2nd place.
Up next: A match-up against the 38-0 Kentucky Wildcats in Indianapolis.
Following the game, Frank “The Tank” showed off his dance moves…….
