Video: Wisconsin walk-on Jordan Smith has memorable senior day

As far as senior days for little-used walk-ons go, it’s tough to top Jordan Smith‘s experience Sunday night. The Wisconsin fifth-year senior probably couldn’t have written a better script, in fact. Not only did the Orono, Minnesota, native see action for just the seventh time this season, but he immediately grabbed a defensive rebound and hit a pair of free throws, his fourth points of the season and the 15th and 16th of his career, in Wisconsin’s 68-57 win over Michigan.
