RIP Dick Enberg, announcer for one of the best Illini Basketball games of all time

There are moments, as a sportsfan, where you remember games so vividly, they stay with you forever. The Illinois-Arizona 2005 NCAA tournament game was one of those games. Every Illinois fan that watched it witnessed one of the best college basketball games of all time, a monster comeback by that one of a kind Illinois Basketball team, fronted by Deron Williams, Dee Brown, Luther Head, James Augustine, and plenty of others.

Legendary announcer and sportscaster Dick Enberg passed away last night at the age of 82.

Enberg called plenty of games in his lifetime, you probably remember his voice if you watched — especially when he called this legendary game in 2005. You can watch the final comeback below.
