Michigan guard Spike Albrecht announces he's stepping away from basketball


Michigan guard Spike Albrecht has announced that he is ending his basketball career with the Wolverines. The decision was made based on his recovery and rehabilitation following the hip surgery he underwent this past summer. Spike was only averaging 8.1 minutes and 1.7 points per game so far this season as he struggled with the injury, a considerable drop from last year's 32 minutes, 7.5 points, 3.9 assists and 2.3 rebounds per game. The move will leave Michigan relatively thin at the point guard position heading forward this season.
