Outside the Boxscore:
Thanks to his first-half performance in the NCAA men's basketball title game, Michigan freshman Spike Albrecht went from a relative unknown to become Internet famous overnight.
After the game, Spike decided to sent out a tweet directed at Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Kate Upton about noticing her at the game:
That tweet was brought up during a Ann Arbor radio interview with Michigan head coach John Beilein and it appears that John has confidence that Spike could pull Miss Upton:
"I think he's still got a shot there," Beilein said on WTKA-AM (1050) this morning. "He's got a shot. The young man has a lot of bravado to tweet the way he did. I think it was inspired by Nik Stauskas a little bit, he edged him on a little bit, his roommate. It's all good. It's fun. When it comes down to we want our kids to have great educations, we want them to win basketball games, we want them to enjoy themselves in the process. I think they've enjoyed themselves."

BEST OF MAXIM
Though his team ultimately lost, no player gained more notoriety during last weekend’s national championship than Michigan backup point guard Spike Albrecht, who showed off his game both on the court and online. Albrecht’s flirtatious tweet to Kate Upton after the game further fueled his status as a cult hero, and his coach thinks the 20-year-old freshman may have a chance with...
Two-time Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover model Kate Upton, 20, and 43-year old rapper, producer and entrepreneur Sean “Diddy” Combs took to Twitter to deal with rumors that they were making out at a Miami Beach nightclub.
The New York Daily News was the first to report that the two were seen locking lips on March 24 — just a little over a month after Upton said...
WHY THE HECK NOT?
After Spike Albrecht received some notoriety for tweeting at Kate Upton, Michigan head coach John Beilein argued that the freshman has "a shot" with the model.
Mark May was feeling pretty saucy on Thursday and decided to throw some criticism at a few teams over Twitter.
May, a college football analyst for ESPN, first took aim at Ohio State for giving out rings to its players in celebration of their 12-0 season:
Just a checking my integrity meter didn’t know you could give out 12-0 rings when your on probation or banned from bowls..just...
I believe this is what they’d call an “epic fail”. Supermodel Kate Upton was on-hand for the NCAA Tournament title game between Michigan and Louisville (she’s a Wolverines fan), and she had some pretty good seats.
One fan decided to try to snap a picture when Upton wasn’t looking, but as you can see, he did not succeed. Considering Upton was taking pictures willingly...
Michigan freshman Spike Albrecht had himself a coming out party during the National Championship Game, playing so well he thought he could try his luck with Sports Illustrated cover girl Kate Upton.
Albrecht rained threes off the bench during the first half of the NCAA Tournament championship game against Louisville after National Player of the Year Trey Burke went down with...
Kate Upton was named one of the top ten most desirable women in the world by Ask Men.com. I know what you’re thinking- how was Kate Upton not #1? So you can imagine how many people tweet at her every single day. You can guess how many of those @tweets go ignored, blocked, deleted etc. I tweeted at her simply thanking her for the page views, and henceforth the revenue that she generates...
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...
Entertainment Social media commentator Keith Fenimore hits back at what’s been trending this week. [April 6 – April 12]
Kate Upton has moved from New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez to Tigers ace Justin Verlander to now P. Diddy. Or Puff Daddy as we knew him in the ’90s, or Diddy or whatever it is Sean “Puffy” Combs or just Sean Combs calls himself these days. Well, at least he didn’t change his name to an impossible to pronounce symbol like Prince did for awhile. DUMB.
Of course, red-blooded American...
1) Spike Albrecht catches fire in the first half
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. When Trey Burke picked up his second foul of the half with about 11 minutes to go until the break, Albrecht got up from the bench knowing he’d...
The Big Leagues Maybe she would have responded if Blue won.
