Badgers celebrate final four, Kaminsky's birthday

ARLINGTON, TEXAS (WAOW) -- Badgers fans got their first look at the team Friday, ahead of the Final Four game. Practice at AT&T Stadium was open to the public and players had a little fun with it.

The stadium was packed with fans as the team prepares to take on Kentucky in the Final Four on Saturday. But there is cause for more celebration than just a Final Four appearance.

Friday is forward Frank Kaminsky's birthday. Ben Brust's brothers led the entire crowd of Badgers fans to sing Happy Birthday to the 7-foot junior. Even though he was on the court warming up, he cracked a smile.

Even 21 years ago to the day, Frank's mother said she knew he would be a successful athlete.

“It's been an awesome experience just being here for him. Especially since it's his 21st birthday, so it's a big day for him. We have plans to celebrate later with him hopefully and late Monday night with a great win,” said Frank Kaminsky's mother, Mary Kaminsky.
