Michigan’s Final Four Hero Spike Albrecht: Louisville Cardinal?


Do you remember Spike Albrecht? I do. Me and Steve and my family were sitting in the Georgia Dome at the Final Four in 2013. We were in the 3rd deck on the side:


Not an awful view at all. The awful part was that there were Michigan fans all around us. Ok it wasn’t too bad but they were very obnoxious. Sound familiar? Trey Burke got his second foul and in comes this tiny guy. Well he was tiny from where we were sitting. The guy next to us proclaims: “Well this is over, this guy hasn’t played 3 minutes the whole year” It was Spike Albrecht. For that day he was their Luke Hancock. Shot after shot, big moment after big moment. He…made…it! Of course the guys next to us were getting in our face and asking how could their scrub be doing this to us and then Luke happened:

Just like that, in the blink of an eye….well you know the rest. I know you are saying “Jeremy, what in the world does this have to do with Spike being a Louisville Cardinal?”

Shortnotice: Luke Hancock



Today I was contacted by Kush Nijhawan, he is a student at Stanford from Louisville KY. He told me he is a huge Louisville Cardinals fan. He also said that he just shot a commercial with our guy and 2013 NCAA Champion Luke Hancock for an app that him and his brother Neil created called Shortnotice. Here is the premise behind the app.


There’s always pockets in the day where we wanna do somethin’ fun, yet we don’t know who’s free. This predicament limits spontaneity. Shortnotice is a platform where you can tell your friends what you feel like doing in real-time. Friends can then “nudge” you if they want to do something with you. You can then start a conversation with the friends that nudged you; to hopefully make that plan happen! Ultimately, our mission is to kindle face-to-face interactions with your friends that otherwise wouldn’t have happened.

Cards in the NBA Summer League 7/17/14



Three former Cards were in action on Thursday in the NBA Summer League, and here is how they did…

*Gorgui Dieng – Gorgui posted another double-double with 15 points and 12 rebounds as the Timberwolves lost 100-86 to the Kings. He also had 3 assists and 3 blocks, along with 5 turnovers. He shot 5-15 from the field and was 5-6 from the free throw line. He started and played 35 minutes. I would say that Gorgui is in line for a very good season. But if Kevin Love does get traded, he could have a great season. The Timberwolves may not, but Gorgui sure will!

He added 1 assist and 2 steals while shooting 6-13 from the field and 1-2 from the free throw line. He started and played nearly 35 minutes.

Luke Hancock gets a NBA workout

Luke Hancock worked out for the Philadelphia 76ers today according to this tweet:

And according to Luke’s Instagram:


While it is unlikely we hear Luke’s name called in the NBA Draft (even though it is not impossible) it is very likely Luke will be on an NBA summer league team. I may be in the minority but with the right fit, such as the Spurs, I absolutely believe Luke at 6’6 could play in the league. Either way it is great to see him getting workouts and we will be rooting for Luke where ever he goes.
