Our weekly feature tracking the performance of Michigan players over the last week’s action.
Glenn Robinson III: 9 (Last Week: 7.5)
Robinson continues to be one of the most efficient Wolverines on the roster: the freshman hasn’t shot below 50 percent from the field since Western Michigan in early December. Against Iowa, Robinson had perhaps the quietest double-double on record with 20 points and 10 rebounds while shooting just over 60 percent from the floor. Against Nebraska, Robinson shot 5-of-6 for 14 points and also provided Michigan with a shot in the arm with two thunderous second-half dunks.
Trey Burke: 8.5 (Last Week: 9.5)
After playing as well as a point guard can play for two games and being shirked a perfect 10 last week, Burke’s rating falls only because it is pretty much impossible to keep up that kind of play every game. Against Iowa, Burke was his usual transcendent self: 19 points, 12 rebounds, one turnover. But against Nebraska’s slow-it-down style,...
BEST OF MAXIM

Trey Burke's season is getting even more attention.
A few days after winning both the Big Ten and national Player of the Week awards, the Michigan point guard was placed on the 25-man shortlist for the John Wooden Player of the Year award. Burke is one of four Big Ten players on the list, joining Illinois guard Brandon Paul, Ohio State forward Deshaun Thomas and Indiana forward...
This year, Trey Burke promises that playing Ohio State is going to be all business.
With the No. 2 Wolverines going for the first 17-0 start in school history Sunday at the fifteenth-ranked Buckeyes, Burke doesn't want the game to get personal.
That's what he says happened last year, and you can understand why. After all, Burke is a Columbus native who wasn't given...
From the moment Glenn Robinson III joined the Michigan basketball team, the freshman looked mature beyond his years on the court.
''There were some scrimmages early in the year, just intersquad scrimmages, he might not take a shot,'' coach John Beilein said. ''He just waits for the game to come to him and picks his spots.''
Robinson is making the...
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By NOAH TRISTER AP Sports Writer Glenn Robinson III is making the adjustment to college look awfully easy for No. 2 Michigan.
A 20-point, 10-rebound effort against Iowa on Sunday was his first double-double - and after several energizing alley-oop dunks, it was impossible to ignore the 6-foot-6 freshman. The son of the former Purdue...
Luke Winn published a great piece earlier this week examining Syracuse’s assist-heavy point guard Michael Carter-Williams. Winn dove inside the numbers to examine Carter-Williams’s assists: how they came to be, who scored them and everything in between. Winn is one of the most insightful sportswriters in the country and he chose one of the best point guards in the country but...

The Wolverines (16-0, 3-0 Big Ten) overcame their shakiest shooting performance in a while, holding the lead for the entire second half. The only other Michigan team to start 16-0 was...
Trey Burke? Mason Plumlee? Ben McLemore?
All are great, but only one can win college hoops' Player of the Year award. And they have a lot of competition.
The midseason Wooden Award watch list was released Thursday, identifying 25 frontrunners in the race for the most prestigious honor.
The top 25 to watch are: UNLV freshman forward Anthony Bennett; Missouri senior forward...
1) Glenn Robinson III creates his own shot
Those of us who remember watching high school highlight videos of Glenn Robinson III were less surprised by this play than those who have only seen him during his freshman year at Michigan. Robinson has found a niche for himself within Michigan’s offense as the coaching staff puts him at spots on the floor (mostly baseline area and in...

With Michigan’s biggest game of the season yet just over 48 hours away on Sunday afternoon, Chris Lauderback of Eleven Warriors and I exchanged questions about the rivalry showdown. My answers to his questions will be going up over there sometime on Saturday but here are his thoughts on the Buckeyes and Sunday’s match-up.
DeShaun Thomas is a scoring machine and I’ve always...
