Michigan’s backcourt might look entirely different as soon as this Final Four is over.
A handful of tweets from sports-and-entertainment attorney Darren Heitner today said that both Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr. will declare as early entry candidates for the NBA draft and already are narrowing the field for agents (Detroit Free Press).
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.
Burke joins Cazzie Russell in 1966 as the only Michigan players to win the award. 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. He shot 40.1 percent from behind the 3-point line (The Washington Post).
Michigan point guard Trey Burke has been named Big Ten player of the year by both a media panel and league coaches.
Burke and Indiana’s Victor Oladipo are also considered national player of the year candidates. Indiana edged Michigan 72-71 on Sunday to win the outright conference title.
The media’s All-Big Ten first team is Burke, Oladipo, Cody Zeller of Indiana and Aaron Craft and Deshaun Thomas of Ohio State. The coaches went with almost the same exact group, except Michigan’s Tim Hardaway Jr. replaced Craft. (CBS Detroit).
