Wisconsin Badgers Video of the Day, 6/10: Jim Irwin's best calls

While the younger Wes Matthews spurned Wisconsin for Marquette, his father, Wes Matthews Sr. did not, playing for the Badgers from 1977-80 and spending nine seasons in the NBA. When you combine Matthews' half-court heave against Magic Johnson's Michigan State Spartans (the year Sparty won the National Championship in 1979) with the voice of former announcer Jim Irwin, you get utter magic, and chills down your spine. Plus, his call when the Badgers defeated then-No.1 Michigan is toward the end of this video.
