Michigan’s Trey Burke Captures Associated Press Player of the Year Award

Trey BurkeFrom burying a 30-foot jumper to force overtime against Kansas in the Sweet 16 to carrying the Wolverines to their first Final Four appearance in 20 years, Trey Burke‘s sophomore moments have been beyond memorable. But his road of success doesn’t stop there.

Burke, who is averaging 18.8 points and 6.8 assists in his second year with Michigan, has been honored with the John R. Wooden Award for his outstanding play in the 2012-13 season. Burke squeezed by Indiana’s Victor Oladipo in the balloting, closing with 2,808 points to Oladipo’s 2,718.

Burke is reportedly going to declare for the NBA draft after this year, but his Wolverines have a task to be completed against Syracuse on Saturday night.
