Wisconsin Players Pretended To Be Media Members At Frank Kaminsky's Press Conference

Wisconsin senior big man Frank Kaminsky was presented with the Oscar Robertson Trophy this morning as the United States Basketball Writers Association's top college player. He received the honor during a press conference at the Final Four in Indianapolis. 

Seated among the small group of reporters covering the event were Kaminsky's teammates, and two of them decided to get in the spirit of things and ask questions. When the floor was opened up, forward Nigel Hayes took the mic, identified himself as "Badger beat writer, inter-squad team relations," and fired away, asking Kaminsky what it really means to win the award.

The Wisconsin basketball program's Instagram account has the footage.

According to For The Win's Tanya Sichynsky, forward Sam Dekker also got into the act after Hayes. Finally, an actual Wisconsin beat writer got a turn to speak, and here's what happened.
