Nigel Hayes : NCAA player comments on reporter's beauty with open mic on - Watch

Nigel Hayes has performed well on the court this NCAA tournament (14.5 PPG, 6.5 RPG), but the press conferences are where he’s blossomed into a true star.

On Wednesday, Hayes joined Sam Dekker and Frank Kaminsky for a news conference ahead of the Badgers’ game against North Carolina.

The moderator asked Hayes if there was anything he wanted to say to the stenographers before the news conference began.

“Syzygy,” he said.

But that wasn’t all, and apparently Hayes didn’t realize his microphone was as sensitive as it was.

“Gosh she’s beautiful,” he said as he turned to Kaminsky, referring to one of the stenographers in the room.

As the room began to laugh, Hayes asked “Did you hear that?”

He then covered his face with his hands in embarrassment.
