30. Rumeal at the line

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
