Bill Walton and Dave Pasch Set to Call UK-Utah

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.

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.

    There’s a fine line between genius and insanity and if Walton ever was one he tore through that line like Benny on a TD run.

    Weirdly excited to hear Bill Walton’s crazy takes. Also, I don’t know how anyone could watch that guy eat that ice cream on tv and not die laughing because that was absolute gold.

    Never thought I would ever say this about an announcer but Walton is even worse than Dukie V.
    Who ever thought that was possible

    ESPN’s worst broadcast duo. Another reason I’m glad I’m not gonna be able to watch tonight!

    Seriously — that same crew called the Maui losers bracket; I tried watching those games over thanksgiving and had to mute the Tv. A lot of people find Walton funny but I can’t stand him.
