Who's The Woman Sitting Next To Elvin Hayes At The Michigan-Houston Game? Lainie Fritz

Lainie Fritz and Elvin Hayes sit courtside.

Houston and Michigan are tied midway through the second half of their second round contest in the NCAA Tournament. One woman in attendance at the contest is going viral after being shown on television.

Early in the second half, TBS showed former NBA great Elvin Hayes, who is now a radio analyst for the Houston Cougars. But the shot also caught a woman in red - and instantly, America wanted to know who she was.

It wasn't hard to figure out. Her name is Lainie Fritz, and she's a reporter for KPRC 2 Houston.

There's just under 12 minutes to play in this one.
