As printed in the Sunday Ann Arbor News, tickets for the Fab Five’s appearance at the Final 4 go on sale this week.  Details:

The event, which will be held April 4 at The Soundboard inside the Motor City Casino, will benefit the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History.

General admission tickets will be sold for a limited time at $60 and VIP access for $100, and can be purchased at Neptix.com beginning Monday.

There’s also a contest if you don’t have the means to shell out the $60 (or $100 for you playas).  They’re giving away five sets of tickets to folks who offer up their best memories of the Fab Five, again, details:

In conjunction with the event, fans are invited to e-mail their favorite Fab Five memory. Five responses will be chosen to receive two free tickets. Submissions, which are due by March 20, can be e-mailed to fab5event@yahoo.com. Participants must be at least 21 years old to enter.

I was in school with these gents, and was a just about every home game (and a few on the road).  My favorite memory?  Probably the Kentucky game in New Orleans.

When most U-M fans remember the 1993 Final Four they zero in on Webber’s timeout of course.  Well, the Saturday semi-final game against Jamal Mashburn and Kentucky was un-fricking-believable.   Just after the game I remember spotting Jalen Rose walking off the floor toward the locker room. Bourbon Street rocked that night I can tell you.

  1. That game was a great experience sharing it with Kelly, Ron and you (forgot if Greek made it too). I remember siiting in disbelief after the UNC game and then realizing we had to drive 15 hours back to campus. Also, knowing how much Ron loved when we were yelling at Dickie V.

    I would put the following on the list of remembering right up there:
    (1) UM blow out of Indiana at home
    (2) UM home game against Duke with Fab Five coming out party – although we lost, atmosphere was amazing
    (3) UM beating Jimmy Jackson led OSU team in Elite Eight with Juwan running to corner to do the Cabbage Patch
    (4) UM beating Temple in tourney after John Chaney trying to intimidate Webber et al
