DETROIT (AP) -The NCAA says Motown legends The Temptations will sing the national anthem Monday night before the men's basketball national championship game at Ford Field in Detroit.
The vocal group includes original member Otis Williams. The Grammy winners recorded such hits as ``My Girl,'' ``Ain't Too Proud to Beg'' and ``Papa Was a Rolling Stone.''
NCAA Senior Vice President Greg Shaheen tells The Detroit News it's ``a special treat ... for ``everyone who traveled to Detroit for this year's NCAA championship game.''
The Detroit-born Motown record label is marking its 50th anniversary this year.
The Final Four opens Saturday with Michigan State playing Connecticut and Villanova taking on North Carolina.
