Did he not realize there was a microphone in front of his mouth?

Mediaite – When a USA Today reporter asked Kentucky center Karl-Anthony Towns about his attempts to guard Wisconsin’s Frank Kaminsky — recently named the Associated Press’ “Player of the Year” — another Wildcat player thought he could mutter a response and not have anyone hear him.

Kentucky point guard Andrew Harrison covered his mouth as he mumbled “Fuck that nigga” under his breath, but it was audible enough to be caught on the hot mic and on national television.
