Some positive news for Michigan fans late this week as senior leader and guard Spike Albrecht took the floor and shot some jumpers for the first time in nearly five months after offseason hip surgery. The 5-foot-11 Albrecht played through pain during his junior season and later had the offseason hip surgery on both hips, but only one operation could be done at a time.
That meant an April surgery on one hip and a May surgery on the other, but Albrecht is already back and shooting jumpers as practice doesn’t start for another six weeks or so.
As a junior, Albrecht put up 7.5 points and 3.9 assists per game for the Wolverines, who should hopefully be far healthier for the 2015-16 campaign. Albrecht, along with senior guard Caris LeVert and junior guard Derrick Walton, are all expected to return to the lineup in full health after the trio all dealt with injury issues last season for Michigan.
