Dan Nelson has been the voice of Southwestern basketball for 30 years

A basketball fan could be blindfolded and know they are inside a gym.  The sounds:  ball bouncing on the hardwood, fans cheering, the squeak of shoes.  They are all familar. Especially, this time of year.


So is Dan Nelson's voice at Southwestern. 


Dan brings materials you might expect when he comes to a game.  You'll find rosters and stat sheets in his folder.  However, you'll also find the legal pad and (down to a nub) pencil he was given when he started working as the Spartans public address announcer 30 years ago.
