I understand they lost - and don't get me wrong; I am all about the US winning gold -- but I think it's whack they are named Fab Five too.
That team was so overrated. Both as a team and individually they never won jack. They were a big deal because of the way they dressed and that's really the only contribution they had opn anything. Also the Beatles had that name first. These girls deserve whatever name they want over those chumps.
All five guys were rated in the HS top 100 4 of them ranked in the top 10.
Michigan - Webber #1 Rose #6
Chicago - Howard #3
Texas - King #9 Jackson #84
These five guys balled out in HS and are considered one of the top recruited classes of all time
They avg nearly 1,500 points and 600 reb each during college
4 of the 5 went on to the NBA
yeah they weren't very good at all
Never said they weren't good, just overrated and hardly a "huge focal point in history." Great teams tend to generally win at least 1 championship.
How many other entire teams of freshman have made it to the championship game?
They made it to back to back championship games
They were the 2nd best team in college basketball for two years
they were ranked 20th and made it to the championship game as freshman
How the f**k is that overrated
