The Houston Cougars lost by just one point to the Michigan Wolverines in their second-round March Madness matchup. But that’s not why people are still taking about it.

When the camera panned to NBA legend and former Cougar Elvin Hayes, a foxy lady dressed in red was on shown his left side.

A furor erupted on Twitter as people begged to know the identity of  Hayes’ courtside companion.

It wasn’t long before the woman was revealed to be Lainie Fritz, a sports reporter for Channel 2 Houston… and the daughter of Tulane’s head football coach, Willie Fritz.

In an interview with Click 2 Houston, Fritz revealed that it wasn’t so much a date as it was an opportunity for her enjoy the game with one of the sport’s all-time greats. 

“Big E is a great friend,” she said. “I enjoyed sitting next to the legend and hearing his expert analysis on the game as it played out.” 

We have just one question left: Is Fritz single?
