University of Kentucky basketball player Andrew Harrison apologized Sunday for dropping a racial slur at a press conference after his team lost to Wisconsin in the Final Four in Indianapolis on Saturday night.
Harrison directed the slur at Wisconsin's Frank Kaminsky, who was recently named "Player of the Year" by the Associated Press.
At the press conference, Harrison is heard muttering the phrase into his microphone after his teammate was asked about playing against Kaminsky.
Harrison quickly took to Twitter to apologize for the remark.
Kaminsky hasn't commented on social media about the remark.
