Watch Dan Dakich serenade Tim Priller with Michael Jackson hit
Dan Dakich draws plenty of reviews, both positive and negative, every time he calls a college basketball game.
The polarizing ESPN analyst knows it, but he isn’t going to change who is. Dakich has his own unique style, one that includes plenty of self confidence and humor.
The former BTN analyst provided another example of this during Purdue’s Big Ten title-clinching win over rival Indiana on Tuesday night. More specifically, during little-used Indiana forward Tim Priller’s unexpected, and rather effective, handful of minutes.
Dakich was so impressed with Priller’s play, effort and screens that he broke out “Priller,” set to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” as he took the game to a TV timeout.
