Posted October 29, 2012 on AP on Fox
With Trey Burke back in the fold at point guard, the Michigan Wolverines are aiming for another Big Ten championship - and more. The fifth-ranked Wolverines got some good news shortly after last season when they found out Burke was planning to stay for his sophomore year instead of leaving for the NBA.

When Burke arrived last season, the Wolverines were trying to replace another star point guard after Darius Morris left for the NBA. Michigan didn't miss a beat. Burke was Michigan's scoring leader and the Wolverines shared the conference title.
