ESPN held a screening at the Tribeca Cinema in NYC last night for the latest installment of their 30 For 30 documentary series. This time, the network chronicled the days of the University of Michigan’s basketball starting squad dubbed the “Fab 5”. The freshmen line-up consisted of Jimmy King, Jalen Rose, Chris Webber, Ray Jackson and Juwan Howard. Together, they changed the face of college basketball by incorporating hip-hop and street ball elements to their style of play.
Following the film, Jalen Rose, co-producer Jason Hehir, and host Ben Lyons held an open Q&A. The doc premieres this Sunday at 9 PM on ESPN. It’s scored by DJ Premier with commentary from Chuck D and Ice Cube. Great work.
