Before tipping off this Saturday night against Syracuse in the Final Four, University of Michigan point guard Trey Burke has some hardware to add to his shelf. Congratulations, Trey!!


Trey Burke, the sophomore point guard who led Michigan to the Final Four, has been selected The Associated Press’ college basketball player of the year.

The Big Ten Player of the Year, Burke was the leader of a team that at times had four freshmen on the court with him but he still managed to average 19.2 points, 3.1 rebounds and 6.7 assists.

Burke received 31 votes Thursday from the same 65-member national media panel that selects the weekly Top 25. Otto Porter Jr. of Georgetown was second with 16 votes andVictor Oladipo of Indiana got 10. The voting ended on Selection Sunday.
