part in shooting drills at the end of practice on Sunday.

Kaminsky isn’t expected to be ready to go on Tuesday when the Badgers (14-6, 5-2 Big Ten) take on 14th ranked Ohio State (15-4, 5-2) in Columbus.

Kaminsky was hurt in the Badgers 64-59 upset win over Indiana in Bloomington.  He was poked in the eye shortly after hitting a pair of key three-point baskets.

Kaminsky is averaging 4.6 points a game this season, shooting 50% from the field and more than 40% from three-point range.  With the Badgers struggling offensively, his offense has been sorely missed.

After Ohio State, the Badgers next play at Illinois on Sunday.
