1993: Michigan Loses to North Carolina in NCAA Basketball Final

April 5, 2023 all-day


The Fab Five reached the NCAA championship game as freshmen on April 6, 1992 and again as sophomores on  April 5, 1993. They lost to Duke 71–51 in the 1992 title game and lost 77–71 to North Carolina in 1993, a game which is remembered mostly for Chris Webber’s costly “timeout”, which resulted in a technical foul as Michigan had no timeouts remaining.

However, most of their wins and both of their Final Four appearances were vacated due to Webber (and others) accepting money from Ed Martin, compromising their amateur status.
