Fox Sports Detroit:
Michigan guard Spike Albrecht is striking while the iron's hot.
The morning after his improbable 17-point effort in the Wolverines' 82-76 loss to Louisville in the national title game, Albrecht hit Twitter to hit on supermodel Kate Upton.
No word on how Tigers ace Justin Verlander -- Upton's rumored beau -- feels about Spike's sweet tweet.

If Michigan had not offered Spike Albrecht a scholarship, the young sharp-shooter was headed to Appalachian State.
Spike Albrecht had the time of his life in the first half for Michigan in the NCAA title game.
With point guard Trey Burke on the bench in early foul trouble, Albrecht made all four of his 3-point shots in the half against Louisville. Michigan had a 38-37 lead at halftime, thanks to Albrecht's 17 points.
Not bad for a freshman who was averaging 1.8 points per game and whose...

Michigan’s title hopes came to an end Monday night as the Wolverines fell to No. 1 Louisville 82-76 from Atlanta.
Trey Burke led all scorers with 24 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists while Spike Albrecht had 17 points off the bench. And speaking of Albrecht he certainly looked like a man possessed in the first half sinking three after three looking very much non-freshman like.

The final Five Key plays of the season document a stunning game with a bitter finish for Michigan. Perhaps most stunning was the dominance of Spike Albrecht over the course of the first half.

Michigan got a huge boost from its bench in its 61-56 victory over Syracuse Saturday. Spike Albrecht, Caris LeVert, and Jordan Morgan all stepped up with major contributions, and based upon tonight’s championship opponent, there’s a good chance that all three will be called upon to play similar roles against Louisville.
The game is over. However, Spike Albrecht still thinks he has the hot hand.
The Michigan guard, who came off the bench in the first half to score 17 points in the Wolverines' loss to Louisville on Monday night in the NCAA championship game, took to Twitter the morning after.
The 5-foot-11 freshman reached out to supemodel Kate Upton, who attended the game in maize and blue...
1. The game officially tipped at 9:23 EST (though it was more like 9:28). While I understand that CBS is looking to maximize its advertising revenue, these ridiculously late tip times always make me uneasy. First, the players aren't used to waiting that long to play a game. Second, kids, at least on the east coast, are going to bed. This is the biggest game of the year and the...
Spike Albrecht put all his hopes of wooing model Kate Upton in the hands of his runner-up appearance in the Final Four and a cute tweet that said he noticed Michigan's most beautiful fan watching the game from the stands. The naivety of youth.
The Michigan freshman better wait until he has an NBA career or gets his hands on a half-billion dollar entertainment empire before...
John Beilein, Trey Burke, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Spike Albrecht were on the podium for Michigan after its championship game loss to Louisville. Read comments from Beilein and his players in the transcript below.
COACH BEILEIN: I’ve had a lot of really good teams over the years, some emotional locker rooms. That one was as emotional, or most emotional we’ve ever...
For one night the NCAA got what it needed the focus wasn’t on the Rutgers basketball program and it’s now former coach Mike Rice. Instead the focus was on the game itself. The National title game, Louisville Cardinals and the Michigan Wolverines. And the game didn’t disappoint. Michigan came out firing in the first half of the game at one point they shot 62 percent and couldn’t...
