Temptations to sing at Final Four

Motown legends will perform national anthem

The NCAA said 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 vp 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.
