The Dagger - NCAAB

If the Dougie didn't jump the shark when Texas A&M president R. Bowen Loftin did his version of the popular dance during the school's Midnight Madness event last month, Arizona State coach Herb Sendek did his best to finish it off.

Sendek unveiled his homage to California Swag District's "Teach Me How to Dougie" during Arizona State's 2010 Tip-off Reception with the help of highly amused Sun Devils women's basketball player Janae Fulcher.

Why would the typically reserved Sendek get his groove on in front of a roomful of stodgy alumni? Well, he told FoxSports.com's Jeff Goodman that the dance was inspired by the 3- and 4-year-old daughters of Arizona State assistant coach Lamont Smith.

They showed him how to do the Dougie before the Tip-Off event began but were too shy to get on stage with him to do it, so Sendek got on stage and delivered a solo performance.

Sendek apparently left the Tip-Off function convinced no video of his performance existed, but he should know better in 2010. Goodman unearthed the above YouTube clip, proving that anytime you do something silly you should just assume it will hit the Internet the next day.
