The man who changed the dynamic of Detroit Titans men’s basketball finally has his place in the Hall.

Not Dick Vitale. (He’s there, too.) But Perry Watson, the former Detroit Southwestern High School head coach and current Orlando Magic scout who was inducted recently into the Titans Hall of Fame.

Watson, who played an integral role on U-M’s famous Fab Five teams, was recruited to UDM in 1993 by former university president Sister Maureen A. Fay, who pitched to him a strong emphasis on education and building relationships.

It was an easy decision for Watson after he realized he had achieved all he could while at Michigan.
