KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WOOD) — Unless Michigan’s Sweet 16 matchup against Oregon on Thursday is a blowout, it’s highly unlikely Andrew Dakich will play a single second — but that doesn’t mean he won’t have an impact on the team.

Dakich hasn’t played in a game all season. But his teammates appreciate him as vocal and selfless leader — so selfless, in fact, that head coach John Beilein awarded him with a scholarship.

But Dakich has found a way to make his name on a bigger stage: He has a podcast with teammate Duncan Robinson called “The Dak & Dunc Show.”
