UM’s Albrecht Hits on Upton on Twitter
How did Michigan bench player Spike Albrecht celebrate his newfound, widespread popularity following his unlikely 17-point performance in Monday’s national championship game? By hitting on two-time Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover girl Kate Upton.
@kateupton hey saw you at the game last night, thanks for coming out! Hope to see you again

Upton was indeed at the Georgia Dome last night cheering on the Wolverines. (She was born in Michigan before spending her formative years in Florida, hence her fandom.)
Albrecht’s too-corny-for-Hollywood performance as star Trey Burke was saddled with foul trouble was enough to allow America to fall in love with him. (He went from having a little less than 4,000 Twitter followers prior to the game to having over 25,000 as of 1 PM ET Tuesday). His continued “attempts to still score” might just make him our new favorite player in college basketball.
