How do you get ready for the 2016-17 college basketball season? Well, at Wisconsin, it is by listening to senior forward Vitto Brown sing the national anthem before the program’s annual Red-White scrimmage.
Brown, who averaged 9.7 points and 5 rebounds per game last season, has sung the national anthem before Badgers basketball games throughout his career. And he showed on Sunday that he hasn’t missed a beat when it comes to his vocals.

Vitto Brown knocked the National Anthem out of the park (again), so we’re about ready to go here in Madison. #Badgers

This isn’t the first time Brown has wowed an audience. ESPN’s Myron Medcalf argued that the 6-foot-8, 235-pound forward should go pro in singing after hearing him sing John Legend’s, “All of Me,” in April.

Brown has talent. But he’s also got plenty of skills on the basketball court, and likely will put the majority of his attention towards helping Wisconsin in that regard this season.
