Trey Burke: 9.5 (Last Week: 9.5)
It’s awfully difficult to play better than Burke is playing right now. When you score 27 points to go along with eight assists, five rebounds, three steals and no turnovers, analysts are going to start proclaiming you one of the best point guards in the country. Burke followed up that virtuoso performance with a solid effort against Eastern Michigan, with 11 points (all in the first half) and eight assists, in which he put the game away early before allowing his teammates to do the rest of the heavy lifting.
Tim Hardaway Jr.: 8 (Last Week: 6)
Before playing West Virginia, Tim Hardaway Jr. was in a shooting slump, going 3-of-13 from beyond the arc in the two games previous. Against the Mountaineers, Hardaway snapped out of his recent struggles, making half of his eight 3-point attempts en route to a dominant outing against Michigan’s...
BEST OF MAXIM
Nik Stauskas is a sharpshooting freshman on the Michigan Wolverines basketball team. On Christmas Eve, the Canadian native spent time working on his shot in the backyard by attempting to nail 45 out of 50 3-point shot attempts. Amazingly, he succeeded. If you don't believe me than watch the video for yourself.The 6-foot-6 guard is averaging 13.4 PPG and is shooting a whopping...
Michigan has plucked two of Ohio’s best from right in the heart of Buckeye-land over the past few seasons. Now Trey Burke and Caris LeVert are working hard to take each other… and Michigan to another level.
University of Michigan freshman Nik Stauskas is a perfect fit for Jon Beilein’s system. Despite being a college rookie, he can shoot it with the best of them. As of December 27, he’s shooting a ridiculous 55.7% (34 of 61) from downtown this season and is third in scoring (13.4 PPG) on the 12-0 Wolverines.
Stauskas and his teammates had a nine-day break between games over...
This kid is absolutely unbelievable. I thought he might replace Matt Vogrich as a starter when the Big Ten games started up, but he proved that he has to be in the lineup as much as possible. Stauskas has started four games this season and has been the Big Ten Freshman of the Week twice already.On Christmas Eve, he made a video of himself shooting 50 three pointers in his backyard...
ANN ARBOR, Mich. Whatever 2013 brings, it is clear that 2012 belonged to Trey Burke.
When the New Year dawned, there were still big question marks over Burke's ability to lead the Wolverines in Big Ten play. After all, the conventional wisdom was that point guard was too important to leave to a freshman.
Twelve months later, the only question left about Burke is if he can...
