With more honors potentially yet to come, Wisconsin forward Frank Kaminsky was named the United States Basketball Writers Association's most outstanding men's college basketball player.

According to Brian Hamilton of Sports Illustrated, the 7-footer was presented with the prestigious Oscar Robertson Trophy to signify his accomplishment:

It was a special moment for Kaminsky, not only due to the award's importance, but also because his teammates and coaches were on hand to see him receive it, per Dan Needles of WISN.com:

That wasn't the only award Kaminsky won on Friday as Duke basketball showed Kaminsky receiving the Associated Press Player of the Year award as well:

The big senior is in the midst of a spectacular season that has seen him average 18.7 points, eight rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.5 blocks per game.

He has also helped lead the Badgers to the Final Four for the second consecutive year, where they hope to gain some measure of revenge against Kentucky and hand the Wildcats their first loss of the season.

Kaminsky was touted as perhaps the best player in college basketball entering the season, and he has only confirmed that notion over the course of the year.

Wisconsin almost certainly wouldn't have made it this far without Kaminsky, which is a testament to just how valuable he has been in 2014-15.
