INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Kentucky guard Andrew Harrison has apologized for directing an obscenity and a racial slur at Wisconsin’s Frank Kaminsky during a postgame news conference.
Harrison muttered “F— that n—-” into a live microphone when another player was asked a question about Kaminsky after Kentucky lost 71-64 to the Badgers Saturday. The loss ruined the Wildcats’ undefeated season.
Harrison said on Twitter that he wanted to apologize “for my poor choice of words used in jest towards a player I respect and know.”
He said the two of them had a “good conversation” and he wished him good luck in Monday’s championship game.
Harrison’s comment came as a reporter asked Kentucky’s Karl-Anthony Towns about defending the 7-foot Kaminsky. He muttered it with his hand in front of his mouth, but the mic picked up the comments.
