Wisconsin sophomore Nigel Hayes learned a valuable lesson when he and his teammates met with the media on Wednesday ahead of their Sweet 16 matchup with North Carolina.

Before the press conference began, the moderator asked the the players if they had anything to say to the stenographers before they got underway. Hayes made a quick comment before noticing one of the women in the crowd. At that point, he turned to Frank Kaminsky and whispered, "God, she's beautiful."

As soon as the crowd began laughing, Hayes knew immediately that the microphone picked up his comment and quickly buried his face in his hands.

Wisconsin, an 8-1 favorite to win the national championship, tips off against the Tar Heels at 6:47 PM/CT for one of the Sweet 16's most intriguing games.
