(Madison, WI) — The uniform number-44 worn by Frank Kaminsky will be hung from the rafters in the Kohl Center during a halftime ceremony Thursday. Kaminsky was the star of back-to-back Final Four Badger teams and was named consensus national player of the year for the 2014-2015 season. Kaminsky won the Wooden Award, the Naismith Trophy and the Oscar Robertson trophy while leading the Badgers to within one win of the national championship. Fans are encouraged to arrive early for the game against number-six Purdue, which tips off at 6:00 PM. The only other men’s basketball number honored by the Badgers is the number eight worn by Ab Nicholas in the 1950s.
