Trey Burke: 10 (Last Week: 7)
Michigan’s star point guard continued his downright legendary season over the past two games, wins over Michigan State at home and Purdue on the road. His averages over those two games: 23.5 points, 7.5 assists, 4 steals and 1.5 turnovers. And these numbers, transcendent though they are, don’t include the fact that he sealed the crucial win over the Spartans with a miraculous steal and dunk against Keith Appling, or that he single-handedly brought Michigan back from down 12 on the road in the second half in front of a raucous Purdue crowd. Burke finally gets his long-overdue 10, and it’s richly deserved.
Tim Hardaway Jr.: 5 (Last Week: 7)
Hardaway had a really tough game against Michigan State, scoring just six points and missing all three of his 3-point attempts. While the junior would certainly like a few shots back against Purdue — mainly ...

Michigan Basketball (25-5, 12-5) pulled out a hard fought 80-75 victory at Purdue (14-16, 7-10) on Wednesday night. The Wolverines were able to overcome a career day by Terone Johnson, who scored 32 points, and kept their Big Ten title hopes alive.
How the game was won
Michigan opened up an early 12 point lead, but Purdue stormed back behind 13 first half points from...
Trey Burke’s sophomore season has been consistently productive to say the least. Not one to compare current players to those he’s coached in the past, Michigan coach John Beilein doesn’t remember seeing many like this.
If the Michigan Wolverines win a share of the Big Ten championship on Sunday, they should immediately do two things.
First, of course, would be to cut down the nets. But at the same time, they might as well lift Trey Burke's jersey into the Crisler Center rafters.
Not only because it will give the Wolverines two conference titles in his two seasons two more than the Fab Five...
Much of the focus on Michigan this season has revolved around the Wolverines tremendous transition offense, Trey Burke’s player of the year resume and the talented crop of freshmen that John Beilein brought to Ann Arbor. Or, more recently, Michigan’s floundering defensive mettle.
Out-of-bounds plays and after timeout situations can feel mundane when compared to...
Trey Burke put Michigan on his back to down the stretch to lead Michigan to a comeback victory at Purdue. Burke finished with 26 points, 22 in the second half, and seven assists to just one turnover in the Michigan win. Watch what Burke along with teammates Nik Stauskas and Tim Hardaway Jr., who both hit critical shots in Michigan’s comeback, had to say in the embedded media player...
The Big Ten is the nation’s premier basketball conference this season, with five ranked teams and three in the top 10: Indiana, Michigan and Michigan State.
Thus it’s not surprising that a Big Ten star is the Bovada favorite to win the Associated Press Player of the Year award this season: Wolverines sophomore guard Trey Burke at 7-4.
Michigan has had some terrific players in...
In a straw poll of 64 voters, Michigan's Trey Burke, Georgetown's Otto Porter and Indiana's Victor Oladipo received the most votes.
John Beilein, Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr. all met with the media this afternoon to discuss Michigan’s home rematch with Indiana on Sunday. A Michigan win will give the Wolverines their second consecutive share of the Big Ten title. Watch all three in the embedded media players below:
Burke and Hardaway after the jump.
Michigan will play for a share of the Big Ten Championship on Sunday and Trey Burke wouldn’t have it any other way.
Trailing Purdue by 12 points with...
Trey Burke had 26 points and five rebounds to lead No. 7 Michigan's rally to an 80-75 victory over Purdue on Wednesday night.
Terone Johnson scored a career-high 35 points and Rapheal Davis added 15 for Purdue (14-16 7-10 Big Ten), who have lost five of their last seven games.
Nik Stauskas had 17 points and Tim Hardaway, Jr. had 16 points and five rebounds for the Wolverines...
The Big Ten widely has been considered the best conference in the nation this season, and it may be no surprise the league race has come down to the final day with four teams seeking at least a share of the championship.
It's not exactly a coincidence, either, that a matchup between those thought to be the conference's top two teams ultimately will decide it.
