It’s halftime of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament title game, and Charles Barkley just announced that Spike Albrecht “can’t keep shooting like that.” But then, who thought he’d shoot like that in the first place? The Michigan guard, who scored 67 points in 38 games until tonight, has 17 points in the first half as the Wolverines lead Louisville 38-37. He’s 4-for-4 from the 3-point line.
This could be a rout except for Luke Hancock, who finished the half with four 3-pointers and 16 points for Louisville.
And now, let’s go to the Twitter Albrecht-Hancock reaction:
