My favorite tournament ever was 20 years ago

It kind of blows my mind to say that, I feel like an old man.  I was a freshman in high school that year, and I don't think I've ever enjoyed watching any college hoops team as much as the Michigan Fab Five.  The Wolverine freshmen made it all the way to the title game as a #6 seed, and even led Duke 31-30 at halftime before falling 71-51.  That tournament also gave us Pitino vs Calipari, Shaq, Alonzo Mourning, Nick Van Exel taking Cinci to the Final Four, "Baby Jordan," and a Florida State backcourt of Charlie Ward, Sam Cassell, and Bob Sura.  Not to mention that Christian Laettner shot to beat Kentucky at the buzzer.  You can read my full article article about it on

Oh yeah, I also wore #5 on my JV basketball team because of Jalen Rose, and it's been one of my top choices for athletic numbers ever since.
