50 Moments That Changed Sneaker Culture Forever

The Fab Five Starts For Michigan

Date: 2/9/1992

Hard to believe though it may be, the "Fab Five" freshman class of Chris Webber, Jalen Rose, Juwan Howard, Ray Jackson and Jimmy King didn't start from day one. Not that this should have come as a total surprise - Michigan was a big-time program with plenty of big-time recruits who'd won the national championship in 1989. But the freshman takeover was all but inevitable from the moment they arrived in Ann Arbor. So on February 9th, when they finally got the chance to start together, they scored all the team's points vs. Notre Dame. College basketball - and on-court style - wouldn't be the same again.
