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."(Courtesy of USA Today)
