Dan Dakich Says When The Tar Heels Don’t Have A Lot Of Talent They Can Get Beat By Anyone
Dan Dakich from ESPN joins The Drive to talk about the Duke/Syracuse game Saturday, how legitimate are Wichita State and San Diego state are and if the Tar Heels will turn things around come tournament time.
We start with Dan by asking him about the Blue Devils getting so many fouls called on them in Syracuse.
“I think Duke really got screwed…How you miss a guy going to the rim and gets racked across the arm in the biggest play of the game.”
“It seems college basketball is being played better but I’d rather just put the emphasis on good officiating”
This years mid-majors are making some noise so we ask if San Diego State and and Wichita State are legitimate teams in college basketball.
“Very much so, they proved themselves last year…The level is so much different now”
“I think Wichita State is talented and very tough..I look for them to run the table”
Next we move on to the Tar Heels. Does he see them as a tournament team?
“The Tar Heels have to play with a ton of talent…and when they don’t have a ton of talent they are just ok”
“…and this team doesn’t have a lot of talent”
As we close we ask if the Bobcats are winning at the wrong time.
“There is no Lebron in this draft…make the playoffs to build momentum”
“You want to have momentum in any franchise”
“Always make the playoffs and figure the rest out later”
