[b]6. Chris Webber's timeout[/b]
For the second straight season, the Fab Five reached the NCAA title game to face a team from North Carolina. As freshmen, the Fab Five lost to Duke in 1992 national title. As sophomores in the '93 national championship, they were in a tight game against the Tar Heels. In what turned into an iconic moment, Chris Webber called a timeout when Michigan had none. Since then, there have been questions about whether the Wolverines' bench was telling Webber to call the timeout, which resulted in a technical foul and two free throws for UNC. Donald Williams made both to ice the game -- and the title -- for the Tar Heels. -- Michael Rothstein

[b]30. Rumeal at the line[/b]
Rumeal Robinson had seen a similar situation at Wisconsin earlier in the 1989 season: two free throws to tie the game. He missed both, resulting in a Michigan loss. At the time, teammate Glen Rice told Robinson he'd get another chance. "I had no idea it would be at that moment on such a big stage," Rice said recently. Redemption would come with the national title on the line. Robinson went to the line against Seton Hall and made both free throws, giving Michigan an 80-79 win and an improbable NCAA championship. Before the tournament, then-athletic director Bo Schembechler had replaced coach Bill Frieder with Steve Fisher because Frieder had announced he would leave for Arizona State after the season. -- Michael Rothstein[/quote]

Go Blue!!

  • Rumeal at the line at 30 is ridiculous.  Should be way higher.
