ESPN announcer Dan Dakich is high on the UNC Tar Heels. During the broadcast of the No. 10 Tar Heels game at Syracuse, Dakich called UNC a Final Four team multiple times in the second half.
Dakich said he liked Carolina, Duke, Ohio State, Michigan State and maybe Arizona to make it to San Antonio. “Yeah, I just gave you five Final Four teams,” Dakich joked.
Moments later, after a slam dunk from Theo Pinson, Dakich repeated his claim, “this is a Final Four team” he said with added emphasis. North Carolina has played in the last two Final Fours, winning it all in 2017.
