Harrison seems to be heard mumbling obscenity, slur


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Kentucky guard Andrew Harrison seemed to mumble an obscenity and a racial slur as a question about Wisconsin's Frank Kaminsky was being asked during a postgame news conference at the Final Four.

Harrison and the Wildcats were upset 71-64 by the Badgers on Saturday night.

After the game Harrison was on sitting at the interview table with his brother, Aaron, directly to his left and forward Willie Cauley-Stein directly to his right.

A reporter directed a question about Kaminsky toward Kentucky's Karl-Anthony Towns: "Karl could you talk about Kaminsky and what if anything is unique about defending him?" the reporter said.

Near the end of the question, a live microphone in front of Harrison picked up his muttering as his hand covered his mouth.

After reviewing an audio recording, The Associated Press asked Kentucky for comment.

"We have no comment until we have had a chance to evaluate it," Kentucky spokesman Eric Lindsey said.
