Trey Burke surpassed the 1,000 point milestone on Sunday in Michigan’s win over Illinois – just his 61st game at Michigan. The list of former Michigan players to reach 1,000 points in two years is an impressive who’s who of Michigan basketball of yesteryear.
Phil Hubbard, Mike McGee, Chris Webber, Jalen Rose, Louis Bullock and Manny Harris reached the mark during their sophomore seasons while Cazzie Russell, Rudy Tomjanovich, Bill Buntin and Henry Wilmore managed the feat in their junior season, but played in an era where freshmen were ineligible.
That group includes four of Michigan’s five retired players, perhaps its two most (in)famous former players along with its most productive player of the 2000s. The company is superb at the top but the 1,000 point club alone doesn’t do Burke’s performance in a maize and blue uniform justice.
There are plenty of players that score 1,000 points in two years in modern college basketball but very few managed the feat with Burke’...
BEST OF MAXIM
Michigan basketball (23-5, 10-5) suffered the most embarrassing loss imaginable in Big Ten play by losing 84-78 against Penn State. The Nittany Lions (9-18, 1-14) were 0-14 coming into the game in conference action and hadn’t won a Big Ten game in 18 tries.
That streak ended tonight with a torrid final 10 minutes of play by Patrick Chambers’ team.
How They Lost...

Fire and Ice: Michigan duo of Burke, Hardaway Jr. form top backcourt – “”Tim’s fire, and Trey’s ice,” Michigan assistant coach Jeff Meyer said. “Different personalities … but they have great passion for the game of basketball but they also have what I think is really special — a drive to win, a will to win, that you don’t see in all the kids you...

Trey Burke: 7 (Last Week: 9.5)
Against Illinois, Trey Burke was as good as it gets — 26 points on 8-of-11 shooting, 8 assists and one turnover. On Wednesday in Michigan’s horrible loss on the road to Penn State, Burke was quite good — but he turned the ball over. Burke...
Michigan freshman guard Caris LeVert is earning more and more time on the floor of late. Playing 16 minutes in the Wolverines win over Illinois Sunday; LeVert was productive on both ends of the floor.
Indiana University might want to forget about him, but Trey Burke is definitely still around.
The Hoosiers put out a news release Tuesday bragging that they have two finalists Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo for the Naismith Player of the Year Award.
Oddly, the list at the bottom of the release has only 28 names, although 30 finalists were chosen.
The first name missing was...
