Tarczewski credits Kaminsky in loss

Kaleb Tarczewski and the rest of Arizona struggled with Frank Kaminsky all night. Read on for Tarczewski's thoughts on Kaminsky and more.

Kaleb Tarczewski matches up well with the majority of the centers in the country, but Saturday posed a unique problem for Arizona.

Unfortunately, Frank Kaminsky was a problem that Tarczewski and his teammates could not solve.

"It's tough to matchup with a guy like that who is seven-foot, but can also knock down threes," Tarczewski said. "If you put a guard on him he will post up and if you put a big on him he will shoot threes. He is a great player, he has really honed his craft and you have to give him credit for that."

' Wisconsin continually ran ball screens for Kaminsky and made it difficult for the Wildcats to adjust.

"He's a great player," Tarczewski said. "Running off those ball screens is tough when you have a seven-footer popping out for threes."

After the game, it did not take long for Tarczewski to reflect on the season that Arizona just completed.

"It's the end of the season," he said. "It might be the last time we get to play with a lot of these guys. Obviously it is a disappointing loss, but we have to look back on this season and look at all the great things that we did."

Obviously Tarczewski would like his team to be playing one more game, but he would not have it any other way in terms of his teammates.

"We won some tough games," Tarczewski said. "I wouldn't want to play with anyone else but the guys in this locker room. It's a tough loss for us, but you kind of look back on it and it's just been a great year.

"It's been such an honor to be here. Everyone in this locker room is like family and it is just a great season."
