FINALS WATCH: Michigan's Fab Five

Monday - 4/8/2013, 8:59pm  ET

ATLANTA (AP) -- One unanswered question at the Final Four: Will there be a reunion of Michigan's Fab Five?

Twenty years ago, the brash group of Michigan youngsters lost to North Carolina in the NCAA title game. This is Michigan's first trip back to the championship game.

Chris Webber's whereabouts are causing the most commotion. Jalen Rose went on a Grantland.com podcast and encouraged Webber to join him and other Fab Five players at Monday night's title game against Louisville, but it's not clear whether that will happen.

Michigan has been recovering from the fallout after a federal investigation revealed that a booster gave Webber and three non-Fab Five players more than $600,000 while they were student-athletes. The NCAA forced the school to dissociate from them until this year. The dissociation officially ends in May.

On Saturday, Webber tweeted "It's Your Time Now!" -- along with a picture of current Michigan players Trey Burke, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Glenn Robinson III.
