Michigan backup Spike Albrecht making heady plays in Elite Eight game against Florida

The Dagger
Not a lot was going right for Florida through the first 30 minutes of its third Elite Eight game in the past three years Sunday. The Gators weren't doing themselves any favors with sloppy passes and quick shots on the offensive end.

Speedy Michigan backup point guard Spike Albrecht came up with a play early in the second half sure to make the highlight reels regardless of the outcome.

With the Gators making a bit of run to eat into what was a 24-point Michigan lead, Albrecht stole an inbound pass from the Gators immediately after a made basket by Mitch McGary. Albrecht made an acrobatic layup for what amounted to a four-point trip down the court for the Wolverines.

It was a heady play for the freshman backup and one the Gators won't soon forget.
