The Regents of the University of Michigan take great pride in being the only university governing board in the nation this year to be able to adopt back-to-back resolutions commending the mens basketball team and its coaches for their second consecutive participation in the NCAA Final Four basketball championship.
The astounding performance of this group of young men last year was an inspiration to the thousands of Michigan alumni and fans everywhere. That accomplishment, however, led to an expectation that they could surely do it again this year, a feat rarely accomplished in collegiate athletics.
But repeat they did, with an almost uncanny series of thrilling victories that matched or even surpassed their success of the previous year.
The Regents salute the 199293 mens basketball team, its coaches and all in the athletic department who supported this splendid season.
