I hope everybody has their tin foil hats made and ready to go, because we’re all about to embark on a nonsensical journey of elite commentary.
The “Pac-12 After Dark” duo of Bill Walton and Dave Pasch are reportedly set to call the late-night matchup between Kentucky and Utah on Wednesday in Las Vegas on ESPN2.
Dave Pasch and Bill Walton will have the call on ESPN2 for UK vs. Utah Wednesday night. Prepare accordingly.

If you’re looking for unique takes, look no further than these two. Walton, in particular, is known for scattering his thoughts all around the known and unknown.
Kentucky fans that were annoyed by the ice cream fiasco during the Jay Bilas-called game against Georgia Tech, buckle up. You’re going to hate this one even more. Walton and Pasch don’t “stick to sports” and they’re the most entertaining team of commentators in the college basketball scene because of it. You would be hard-pressed to find a person that enjoys his pure existence more than Walton. The dude is just a joyous bundle of random facts and quirky sayings. I’m pretty sure he’s an actual genius. Every word that comes out of his mouth appears 100 percent genuine.
Pasch is one of the best play-by-play guys in the business right now. He’s easily my favorite to call nationally televised NBA games and West Coast Twitter absolutely adores the tag-team duo of Pasch and Walton. They have a hilarious chemistry together that always provides at least one meme-worthy snippet.
The game won’t tipoff until 11 p.m. and will likely run until roughly 1 a.m. Walton and Pasch will surely keep your eyes from closing shut with constant entertainment all evening long.
