Wisconsin’s Nigel Hayes embarrassingly calls reporter beautiful (Video)


Wisconsin Badgers star forward Nigel Hayes embarrassingly called a reporter beautiful during a press conference.

Nigel Hayes is one of the key players for the Wisconsin Badgers this year, and they are gearing up for their Sweet Sixteen matchup with the North Carolina Tar Heels.

He was speaking at a press conference ahead of the game, when he noticed an attractive female reporter. Unfortunately, he chose to vocalize his thoughts about her looks to his teammates, and the microphone picked his voice up.

There is nothing wrong with his statement, but it certainly came across a bit awkward given the setting. His teammates aren’t going to be letting Hayes live that moment down anytime soon.

Hayes has been a huge part of the Badgers’ success this season, and has averaged 12.6 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game. He is going to be a very difficult cover for the Tar Heels’ defense, and at 6’7″ has very impressive athleticism and strength. Obviously this is a situation where everyone would love to see what the reporter looks like, but that hasn’t been shared.

It is going to be very interesting to see how the Badgers do against North Carolina. There has been quite a bit of media skepticism about them, and there have been some comments about their lack of schedule strength. Despite all of the critics, the Badgers are very confident and are without question one of the best teams in the country.

All of that being said, this is going down with quite a few of the other embarrassing interviews in sports. Hayes is going to be asked a lot of on the court, and hopefully he doesn’t embarrass himself like he did off-the-court.
