A Wisconsin University basketball player learned a tough lesson after a game, but thankfully, it only endeared him to many of his fans.

Nigel Hayes was apparently quite smitten with a reporter in the room during a news conference earlier this week. He turned to his teammates sitting with him at the table and whispered “God, she’s beautiful”, not realizing his mic was hot.

It’s not clear who exactly Hayes is talking about when he said that to teammate Frank Kaminsky.

But when he realized the room heard him say, “God, she’s beautiful,” he covered his face in embarrassment.

The Wisconsin Badgers beat the Tar Heels Thursday night, 79-72, by the way.
