Jalen Rose‘s pleas have been answered. The former Wolverine’s Fab Five teammate, Chris Webber, made an appearance Monday night at Michigan’s national title game.
Rose reached out to Webber Sunday night during his podcast with Bill Simmons, urging C-Webb to join his former Fab Five teammates in Atlanta.
Webber has had a strained relationship with his alma mater since his role in a scandal that led to the university taking down the Fab Five’s national finalist banner.
Speculation swirled Monday night on Twitter about whether or not Webber would show up after Rose said he’d texted his former teammate and never heard back. CBS showed footage of Webber entering the arena from the parking garage, and the Twitter world went crazy.
Michigan squares off against the No. 1 seed Louisville Cardinals for the national championship on Monday night. Neither team has won a championship since the 1980s, and Monday night’s matchup is sure to be an instant classic.
