  • The 1991–92 Michigan Wolverines men's basketball team represented the University of Michigan in intercollegiate college basketball during the 1991–92 season. The team played its home games in the Crisler Arena in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and was a member of the Big Ten Conference. Under the direction of head coach Steve Fisher, the team finished tied for third in the Big Ten Conference. The team earned an invitation to the 1992 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament where it was national runner up. Although the team compiled a 25-9 record during the season, the National Collegiate Athletic Association has adjusted the team's record to 24-8 due to the University of Michigan basketball scandal. The team was ranked for the entire eighteen weeks of Associated Press Top Twenty-Five Poll, starting the season ranked twentieth, rising as high as number eleven and ending ranked fifteenth, and it ended the season ranked seventeenth in the final USA Today/CNN Poll. The team had a 6–6 record against ranked opponents, including the following victories: January 9, 1992 against the number sixteen ranked Iowa Hawkeyes 80-77 (overtime) at Carver–Hawkeye Arena in Iowa City, Iowa, January 29 against the number thirteen ranked Michigan State Spartans 89-79 (overtime) at the Breslin Student Events Center in East Lansing, Michigan, March 8 against the number two ranked Indiana Hoosiers 68-60 at Crisler Arena, March 27 the number eleven ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys 75-72 in the 1992 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament at Rupp Arena, March 29 the number three ranked Ohio State Buckeyes 75-71 at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky, and April 4 against the number twelve ranked Cincinnati Bearcats 76-72 at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis. The team had rotating captains on a game-by-game basis, and Chris Webber earned team MVP. The team's leading scorers were Jalen Rose (597 points), Chris Webber (528 points), and Juwan Howard (377 points). The leading rebounders were Webber (340), Howard (212), and Rose (146). During the season, the team won the Big Ten Conference statistical championships in rebounding and rebounding margin with at 38.2 average and 5.8 average margin in conference games, respectively. Chris Webber became the first freshman to lead the Big Ten in rebounds with a 9.8 average in 18 conference games and 10.0 average in 34 overall games. However, his 340 rebounds in 34 games fell short of Phil Hubbard's school freshman single-season record of 352 rebounds set as a member of the 1975–76 team that still stands as the school record as of 2010. Jalen Rose set the current school record for points scored by a freshman 597. Rose also set the school single-season record for minutes played with 1132 minutes. The following season, four players surpassed this total. The team set the school record for single-season team blocks with 182 in 34 games, surpassing the 1986 teams total of 146 in 33 games. The following season the team would rebreak the record. The Wolverines 25-9 record was an improvement on the previous years record of 14-15. Due to the success of the Fab Five, athletic royalties increased from 2 million dollars in 1990 ($3.6 million today) to 4.4 million dollars ($7.4 million) in 1992. The team, coached by Steve Fisher, is best remembered for the entry of a remarkably talented freshman class, known as the Fab Five, that would become the starting lineup: * Center: Juwan Howard * Power forward: Chris Webber * Small forward: Ray Jackson * Shooting guard: Jimmy King * Point guard: Jalen Rose Reserve point guard Rob Pelinka would go on to greater fame as an agent for numerous NBA stars, most notably Kobe Bryant. Although the Wolverines would make the NCAA title game that season, losing to defending national champion Duke, they vacated their Final Four appearance in the wake of a major scandal involving many years of improper payments from a major booster to several former players, among them Webber.
