For those film fans who are currently wrapped up in March Madness, this writer heavily recommends you tune into Espn at 9pm Et, for the premiere of Espn Films’ The Fab Five.
By the producers of Espn’s 30 for 30 documentary series, this two hour film tells the captivating story of one of the most famous/infamous teams in college basketball history. It all began in the fall of 1991, when five freshmen- Juwan Howard, Jimmy King, Ray Jackson, Jalen Rose and Chris Webber- set foot on the campus of the University of Michigan, representing the greatest class ever recruited.

Eklund was not bowled over in a rush of luvvies. There will not be another chapter. He has had his Hollywood moment and will be forgotten soon enough, »
