One of the more random and unpredictable hires in Louisville basketball history was made official over the weekend.
Seven years after single-handedly carrying Michigan in the first half of the 2013 national title game, former Michigan guard Spike Albrecht has joined the Louisville staff as a graduate assistant.
For 20 minutes Albrecht played full heel as he carved up the Cards with 17 first half points, despite averaging 1.8 points per game heading into the national title match-up.
The second half was a much different story as Albrecht didn’t score a single point and Louisville went on to win 82-76. You read that right. Louisville won the 2013 national championship.
Albrecht spent four seasons with the Wolverines for four seasons before transferring to Purdue for his final year of eligiblity. The Indiana native most recently served as assistant coach at Northfield Mount Hermon, a prep school in the Northeast.<
