The sophomore was the only Wolverine who showed up in East Lansing and put up a valiant, if futile, effort against the Spartans with 18 points on 7-of-11 (3-5 3pt) shooting from the field. Against Penn State at home, Burke was pretty much perfect: 29 points on 16 shots with five assists, two steals and zero turnovers. Burke continues to be a rock for a Michigan team that has been inconsistent its past few times out.
