1. Prior to last night, odds are you had never heard of Spike Albrecht.
2. That’s because he spent most of his freshman season on the bench behind player of the year Trey Burke.
Before last night the 5-foot-11 guard never scored more than 7 points or played more than 15 minutes in a game this season.
5. But with Burke in foul trouble Albrecht became an unlikely hero, scoring 17 points in 28 minutes.
Over the course of the first half Spike Albrecht became a national sensation.
7. Before the game Albrecht had a respectable amount of Twitter followers.
So what does a 20-year-old do with this newfound fame, you ask?
13. And she does like hanging out with basketball players.
Stay fearless, my friend.
