David Robinson scores 50 points for the Navy in the opening game of the NCAA Tournament. The career-high is not enough as the #8 Midshipmen are sunk by #9 Michigan 97-82 at the Charlotte Coliseum. Robinson adds 13 rebounds in his final collegiate game. The 7’1″ center had taken Navy to the Elite Eight in 1986 and was considered the top college prospect, despite being tied to a two-year commitment to the Navy after graduating.
