Wisconsin basketball: Frank Kaminsky goes nuts after Koenig's game-winning 3

UW vs. XAV: Replays of B. Koenig winner

Wisconsin punched its ticket to the Sweet 16 in epic fashion on Sunday night, with Badgers guard Bronson Koenig knocking down a game-winning 3 at the buzzer against Xavier.

That shot certainly made one former Wisconsin player awfully happy. Frank Kaminsky, who led the Badgers to the national championship game last year, went absolutely nuts when Koenig hit the jumper.

Take a look:

Kaminsky wasn't the only Badger from last season's team to lose his mind after the shot. Sam Dekker was right there with him.

Koenig and Wisconsin will face Notre Dame on Friday at 7:27 p.m. ET with an Elite Eight berth on the line.
