The Wisconsin Badgers are set to square off against the North Carolina Tar Heels on Thursday night in the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA tournament, and players from both teams are in good spirits.

The Badgers have a strong frontcourt anchored by Frank Kaminsky, Nigel Hayes and Sam Dekker. Those three players fielded questions from reporters during a press conference on Wednesday. And everyone in attendance enjoyed a laugh when Hayes embarrassed himself by forgetting microphones pick up everything around them.

Hayes remarked to his teammates that a stenographer was beautiful. Unfortunately for him, a hot mic picked up what he said, and everyone heard exactly what came out of his mouth. (The Badgers’ big men became fascinated with the stenographer at their last tourney stop as well.)

Here’s how it went down on Wednesday:

Hayes: “Gosh, she’s beautiful.”

[Media members burst into laughter.]

Hayes: “Did you hear that?”

Next time, Hayes might want to wait until after the press conference is over before weighing in.
