Trey Burke was named one of six preseason All-Americans by the Associated Press. Burke earned 16 votes to tie for the fifth spot on the team.
The 6-foot Burke averaged 14.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and 4.6 assists in a freshman season that saw the Wolverines crack the top 10 and share the Big Ten title.
“I’m pumped,” Burke said of the upcoming season. “I’m really excited. The level of talent we have, I’m excited to see how far we can go.”
Cody Zeller, Doug McDermott, Isaiah Canaan, Deshaun Thomas and CJ McCollum round out the six man team.

Trey Burke is a winner. Few thought Burke would be able to fill the void left behind by Darius Morris’s early draft departure but the 6-foot guard exceeded every expectation during his freshman season. He didn’t just replace Morris, he was better than Morris. Expectations for Burke’s sophomore year have gone from hopeful to assumed. Rather than unknown freshman, Burke is a...

With Trey Burke back in the fold at point guard, the Michigan Wolverines are aiming for another Big Ten championship - and more.
The fifth-ranked Wolverines got some good news shortly after last season when they found out Burke was planning to stay for his sophomore year instead of leaving for the NBA. That gives Michigan an exciting trio of Burke, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Jordan Morgan...
While his counterpart in the 2012 class, Mitch McGary, saw his stock fluctuate wildly during his last two years of high school, Glenn Robinson III’s stock only progressed in one direction through his prep career: upward. The St. John, Indiana native committed to Michigan in September of 2010 and since that point the excitement around his game has grown exponentially. Month-by-month...
ANN ARBOR -- Denard Robinson is expected to play Saturday as Michigan takes on Minnesota.
Robinson missed the second half of last weekend's 23-9 loss to Nebraska after aggravating a nerve injury in his elbow. He was replaced by Russell Bellomy, who went 3-for-16 with three interceptions, allowing the Cornhuskers to pull away for the key LegendsDivision victory.
Michigan, it seems, got a scare and not a long-term problem when Denard Robinson injured a nerve in his right elbow against Nebraska.
''He should be fine,'' Wolverines coach Brady Hoke said Monday. ''He should be ready to go on Saturday.''

Michigan heads to Minnesota this week with more questions than answers on offense.
The Wolverines have gone two straight games without scoring a touchdown - a first since the early 1960s - and they played the second half of Saturday's 23-9 loss to Nebraska without quarterback Denard Robinson.
Robinson injured a nerve in his right (throwing) elbow late in the first half, leaving...

Under Brady Hoke, Michigan is 15-0 when it scores more than 17 points. That’s all the defense needs to stand its ground and hold off its opponent. This weekend, however, Michigan came up well short and suffered its third loss of the season. All three have been away from the Big House.

Michigan senior left tackle Taylor Lewan wasn't in the mood for jokes Wednesday. Lewan comes to the defense of quarterback Russell Bellomy, talks about the running game's miscues, and about finishing in the red zone.
Basketball Prospectus | Indiana’s No. 1 – Dan Hanner ranks Michigan 44th: “Michigan is almost certainly too low in my prediction, but I haven’t been able to use historic data to generate a higher ranking for the Wolverines. John Beilein has never had a top-25 defense, and a team of newcomers is not the situation where a coach typically has his best defensive season. Then...
