A former Wisconsin Badgers standout had quite the performance on Friday.

Center Frank Kaminsky scored 33 points in 19 minutes for Team USA in the BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge during NBA All-Star Weekend.

Kaminsky hit 12-of-16 shots from the field, including 9-of-13 (69.2 percent) from three-point range. He also recorded three rebounds and two assists as U.S. fell to the World 150-141.

Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray scored a game-high 36 points along with registering 11 assists for the world team in their win.

In 54 games this season, Kaminsky has averaged 10.8 points and 4.6 rebounds per game for the Hornets, who are currently 24-32 at the all-star break.

In his time at Wisconsin, the seven-foot big man was awarded the following National Player of the Year honors—the Wooden Award, Naismith Trophy and Oscar Robertson Trophy. Kaminsky was the 18th player in school history to earn consensus All-American honors, and still holds the single-game record for points scored (43 versus North Dakota in 2013).
