University of Kentucky’s Andrew Harrison Apologizes for Racial Remark Against Frank Kaminsky

University of Kentucky’s Andrew Harrison Apologizes for Racial Remark Against Frank Kaminsky

Kentucky player Andrew Harrison is apologizing for racial slur aimed at Frank Kaminsky, who helped defeat and end UK’s undefeated streak this past Saturday in the NCAA Final Four tournament.

According to Yahoo! Sports, Harrison muttered the phrase, “F— that N—-“, after a reporter asked Karl-Anthony Towns why it was so difficult to defend Wisconsin, who beat UK 71-64. Early Sunday morning, Harrison took to Twitter to apologize and to also state that he had spoken and apologized to Kaminsky.

Kaminsky stated, “He reached out to me. We talked about it. It’s over. Nothing needs to be made of it.” He went on to say, “I’m glad he reached out. He’s a nice kid. He said he really respects me and he really apologizes for what he said. I could tell he was sincere about it.”

I can understand the tough and probably embarrassing loss it was to not make it to the NCAA Championship, especially when you and your team have been undefeated, and when America had you pinned to be in the championship game. Sometimes when you wear your emotions, heart, and love for a game on your sleeve you get a bit carried away and let your emotions speak for you, however that does not make it ok. Apologizing to the world especially when making a statement like that on national TV and most importantly apologizing to the person you spoke badly about is commendable, but Harrison will need to learn how to leave his emotions at the door and not at a press conference .

I’m sure both Harrison and Kaminsky will enter this year’s NBA draft.

Now that UK is out of the game, who do you think will win tonight’s NCAA Championship game, Wisconsin or Duke?
