Indiana University might want to forget about him, but Trey Burke is definitely still around. The Hoosiers put out a news release Tuesday bragging that they have two finalists Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo for the Naismith Player of the Year Award. Oddly, the list at the bottom of the release has only 28 names, although 30 finalists were chosen. The first name missing was that of Burke, generally considered Oladipo's biggest rival for the Big Ten Player of the Year award and a strong contender for the Naismith Award. Burke is averaging 18.9 points, 6.9 assists and just 1.8 turnovers per game while leading Michigan to No. 4 in the latest Associated Press poll. Along with Burke, the Hoosiers also left Rotnei Clarke, a senior from nearby Butler University, off the list. When contacted by FOXSportsDetroit.com, J.D. Campbell, Indiana's senior assistant athletic director for media relations, said that the missing names were just an oversight. "We will get it fixed," he said. Top-ranked Indiana finishes the regular season at Michigan on March 10, a game that still could decide the Big Ten championship. Their chances of winning would go up exponentially if Burke somehow ceased to exist.
