29 years ago our beloved Wolverines played in the Championship game and won it. The game was in Seattle in the now-demolished (wise move) Kingdome. The Michigan games were fantastic. We beat a tremendously talented Illinios team 83-81, and of course faced Seton Hall in the final game. They were a well coached and tough team, led by an Austrailian named Andrew Gaze, a 3 point specialist (someone please google this to see if I am remembering this correctly). who was sure to figure into the outcome.
As to the final game itself, Michigan prevailed 80-79. For those of us who were alive, whether you were in Seatlle or not, Rumeal Robinson shot a 1-and-1 free throw with seconds left. We were down by a point....and he sank them both. Talk about ice in your veins.
Before the game we were in a bar across from the Kingdome and I started a poll of the patrons - questions like how many points will Glen Rice score, how many 3 pointers for SH's Andrew Gaze, and of course, who will win and by what score. The polls skewed heavily Michigan, even in Seattle.
So with a nod to the thread below, lets make some predictions.
1. Is Moe going to show up and dominate?
2. Are MAAR and Z going to rebound from Saturday's poor shooting?
3. How many 3's will Nova attempt, and how many go in?
3. Who wins, what score?
