None of them have a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, but University of Wisconsin men’s basketball players sure have been living the high life on the Golden Coast.It all started Tuesday afternoon when senior forward Frank Kaminsky met actors Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly for a segment on “Access Hollywood.”So, this happened yesterday. Check out @FSKPart3’s interview with Will Ferrell tonight on @accesshollywood http://t.co/u1o27UKXlS— Wisconsin Basketball (@BadgerMBB) March 25, 2015 “Did we just become best friends?””Yup.” pic.twitter.com/YFo3hKV4Qh— Wisconsin Basketball (@BadgerMBB) March 24, 2015Then, “Entourage” creator and writer Doug Ellin and actor Jerry Ferrara stopped by Wisconsin’s practice.Welcome to the #Badgers entourage, @jerrycferrara & @mrdougellin. pic.twitter.com/Dyf1oxZOdV— Wisconsin Basketball (@BadgerMBB) March 25, 2015The team is also using the Los Angeles Lakers locker room at the Staples Center. Sophomore forward Nigel Hayes looked, um, excited to use Kobe Bryant’s locker.That moment when you find out you have @kobebryant’s locker… pic.twitter.com/EQjARhaNDk— Wisconsin Basketball (@BadgerMBB) March 25, 2015Kobe loved it.LOL @BadgerMBB best of luck to you guys! #MarchMadness— Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) March 26, 2015It hasn’t been all fun and games for the Badgers, though. The team’s Twitter account posted that the team had a combined 22 exams to take while on the road.The Big Ten also announced its winter academic all-Big Ten honorees. Fifth-year senior forward Duje Dukan, sophomore forwards Vitto Brown and Nigel Hayes and redshirt freshman Aaron Moesch were on that list.
Ghanaian teenage sensation, Matthew Anim Cudjoe has already earned plaudits for his exploits on the pitch.It seems that off the pitch as well, the kid is proving to be a star in the making.Following his brilliant second-half cameo against Accra Hearts of Oak which ended with him being gifted cedi notes by appreciative fans in the Accra Sports Stadium, 16-year-old Cudjoe has just managed to endear himself to Ghanaians even more.Matthew Cudjoe was introduced into the game and was influential.Hearts of Oak vs Asante Kotoko – 26-01-20With each Kotoko player getting GH¢2,000 each as bonuses from their win over Hearts, Cudjoe has opted to donate half of that amount to the fan of the club who was shot in the eye after their game against Berekum Chelsea.The fan, Augustine Oppong was shot in the eye with a rubber bullet during chaotic scenes in the aftermath of the match, which Kotoko lost 2-0.He has since been discharged from the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital where he was taken after the incident and is reported to be recovering.The police officer who pulled the trigger has since been interdicted.
