FINALS WATCH: Michigan timeout

ATLANTA (AP) — A reminder of an infamous moment in Michigan basketball history can be seen near the court.

There’s a sign that says “TIME OUTS LEFT” with the No. 5 on it. Hard to tell if the tone is a mocking one or if it’s just a Michigan fan trying to be helpful. There is a block “M” on the message.

Former Michigan star Chris Webber called a timeout in the last seconds of the 1993 championship game against North Carolina — but the Wolverines didn’t have any left. The play resulted in technical fouls against Michigan and the Tar Heels went on to win 77-71.
