Chris Webber's timeout call ranks No. 6 on ESPN's top 75 NCAA tournament moments
His legacy in the NCAA tournament will also be something that's forever attached to his name.
Even if it caused a great deal of pain.
Webber's famous timeout call during the closing moments of the 1993 NCAA tournament final came in at No. 6 on ESPN's top 75 moments in tournament history.
After leading Michigan to the championship game for a second consecutive year, Webber's infamous moment came with the Wolverines trailing North Carolina by two with less than 20 seconds to play.
After rebounding a missed free throw, Webber got away with a travel under the Tar Heel basket before frantically dribbling the entire distance of the court toward the corner near the Michigan bench -- right into a trap.
The Wolverines were out of timeouts, but a frantic Webber called one anyway with just 11 seconds remaining.
The play resulted in a technical foul, basically handing North Carolina the game and ending the Fab Five's two-year run at Michigan.
"I think that the timeout, and he may or may not ever admit this, I think that timeout really screwed him up emotionally," former Michigan star Jalen Rose said last fall on an ESPN podcast. "To the point where, he wanted to disassociate himself with the entire Michigan scenario, he wants to act like it never happened.
Ten years later, Michigan vacated all games Webber was involved in due to his part in the Ed Martin recruiting scandal. Webber's 10-year disassociation with the program ends this May.
The 6-foot-10 phenom averaged 19.2 points and 11.3 rebounds during Michigan's '93 tournament run. But that's not usually what he's most remembered for.
Webber also landed at No. 73 on ESPN's top 75 players in NCAA tournament history.
The other Michigan moment highlighted on ESPN's list was Rumeal Robinson's pair of overtime free throws to beat Seton Hall in the 1989 title game, giving Michigan its only basketball national championship.
Michigan's all-time leading scorer, Glen Rice, came in at No. 20 on the top 75 players list. Rice's 184-point run in the '89 tournament still stands as a record today.
The NCAA tournament will celebrate its 75th anniversary this March.
