Former Wisconsin Badgers star Michael Finley came up with a pretty awesome way to get fans excited for the team's Final Four matchup against the Kentucky Wildcats.

Finley sent out the following tweets earlier this week, offering free drinks at the Cool River Cafe in Dallas on Friday night to anyone with a current or former Wisconsin student ID.

The former Badger scored more than 2,000 points in his college career before playing 15 seasons in the NBA, so Wisconsin fans had a unique opportunity to hang out with a legend a day before their team's game against the Wildcats.
