Wisconsin Badgers: F Vitto Brown Does Billy Joel Proud


Forward Vitto Brown, who will be a sophomore next season for the Wisconsin Badgers, didn’t do a lot on the court as a freshman.

Brown appeared in 14 games and played 44 minutes, logging six points on 3-of-11 shooting, going 0-for-3 from the foul line and grabbing 12 rebounds.

He made some noise on the court last year, however. He sang the national anthem prior to the team’s Red-White scrimmage last October.

Brown showed off his pipes again recently, joining up with the university’s a capella group, Fundamentally Sound, for a cover of Billy Joel’s “Just the Way You Are.”

Seriously, if this whole basketball thing doesn’t work out for the 6-foot-8 native of Bowling Green, Ohio, he might want to give the music thing a go. Guy’s got some serious talent.

He wouldn’t be the first to go from hoops to tunes, either. The late Wayman Tisdale recorded eight albums as a jazz bassist after a 12-year career in the NBA.
