Wisconsin basketball players perform a Motown classic

Friday May 1st, 2015

The University of Wisconsin athletic department recently held its annual Buckinghams ceremony in which it celebrates the success of the school's student athletes.

This year's award show featured a special performance from four members of the National Championship runners-up men's basketball team, as Nigel Hayes, Riley Dearring and Jordan Hill sang back up while Vitto Brown led a wonderful rendition of "It's a Shame" by The Spinners.

Brown was likely not nervous before the performance since he sang earlier for a much larger crowd when he and other student athletes performed the national anthem at the Final Four in Indianapolis.

While the singing is great, there is some Left Shark-level miscues going on with the backup singers' choreography.
