Dan Dakich Shares Cool Pregame Notes From 1984 IU-UNC Sweet 16 Game Ahead Of Tonight's Contest

Indiana and North Carolina have met in the Sweet 16 before. 

Back in 1984, the No. 4-seeded Hoosiers faced the No. 1-seeded Tar Heels in an East Region semifinal in Atlanta. Indiana pulled off a 72-68 upset against a North Carolina team that featured Michael Jordan, Sam Perkins and Kenny Smith. 

ESPN college baskeball analyst Dan Dakich was on that Bobby Knight-led Hoosiers' team. He scored just four points in the win, but guarded Jordan for much of the contest. 

On Twitter this evening, Dakich shared his pregame notebook for that game. It features a ton of awesome tidbits. "Keep Jordan off the boards." "Make Smith prove he can shoot." "Kick their ass!!!"
