Wisconsin’s Frank Kaminsky and Kentucky’s Willie Cauley-Stein struck up a nice friendship during Final Four week over Super Smash Bros.
This Saturday night as part of the 2015 Final Four, we’re going to see two giants go head-to-head as the Wisconsin Badgers will take on the Kentucky Wildcats with the right to play for the national championship on the line. Aside from these two teams as a whole being great, it features two of the best players in the college game today in Frank Kaminsky and Willie Cauley-Stein.
Now while these two will be enemies on the court Saturday night in Indianapolis, apparently they have forged quite the bond this week with one another, and it’s all thanks to one video game…
Super Smash Bros.
Yes, during the Final Four press conference on Thursday ahead of the showdown on Saturday night, when Kaminsky was asked about his foe from Lexington, he let the cat out of the bag that the two found out they share the same affinity for the popular game and grew closer to one another because of that.
Of course, this really has nothing to do with the game that will take place on Saturday night, but that did not stop follow-up questions from being asked about this unique partnership.
While everyone is taking this match up on Saturday night very seriously, this was a welcome reminder that these two are still really just kids, which is always pretty awesome to be reminded of.
