Our weekly feature tracking the performance of Michigan players over two game segments.
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 scored 18 points on 50 percent shooting but shot poorly from the 3-point line and notched six turnovers. That is the highest turnover total for Burke all season, and the first time since playing Ohio State on the road on January 13th that he’s had more than three.
Tim Hardaway Jr.: 7 (Last Week: 3)
Tim Hardaway Jr. has had a couple of nice all-around games in a row. The junior scored in double digits against Illinois and Penn State, while registering seven rebounds and three assists in both games. However, Hardaway’s 3-point shot is still somewhere roaming around Madison, Wisconsin. Hardaway hasn’t shot better tha...

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...
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...

For the sixth episode of the UM Hoops Podcast, we had our engineer back but unfortunately we were down a co-host. Dave Merritt couldn’t be with me but we still managed to record a great show. I was joined by current Michigan basketball captain Josh Bartelstein as well as Chris Vannini from the excellent Michigan State blog The Only Colors.
With Josh, we addressed some of the difficulties...

For Michigan fans, Appalachian State is the definition of the worst possible loss.
