College basketball legend Frank Kaminsky earned a huge honor Wednesday from the Big 10.

The former Wisconsin Badgers forward was named to the conference’s all-decade first team after back-to-back trips to the Final Four. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

I know I already said Ethan Happ was a lot of fun to watch for the Badgers and he made the second team. However, Kaminsky was simply on a different level.

He might not have been the most physically gifted player in Wisconsin history, but he was the most successful player in school history.

He took the Badgers to back-to-back Final Four appearances, and he got Wisconsin within a few points of a national championship.

Now, he’s earned himself one hell of a great honor from the conference he dominated for years in college. If that’s not awesome, then I don’t know what is.

Kaminsky has been a solid and steady pro, but he will forever be remembered as one of the greatest college players to ever pick up a ball.

It was a ton of fun to watch him play while I was at Wisconsin, even if Duke stole a national title from us.

Props to Kaminsky for all his accomplishments and earning another honor from his college career with the Badgers.
