Jeff Borzello quotes a number of college coaches on Michigan and how to stop the Wolverines. A couple highlights:
“You can to try and keep Burke out of the middle — and not just him, but all their guys. Hardaway and the rest of the team are more straight-line drivers. You need to get out on their shooters, but they put you in a bind because they really spread the floor. Jordan Morgan and even Mitch McGary can catch and finish around the basket, also. The key, though, is trying to keep Burke out of the middle of the floor. But that’s easier said than done.”
“I don’t think they’re as good a defensive team as they were last year. Whether that’s because they’re switching everything and have young guys out there, I don’t know. But I don’t think [Tim] Hardaway is a great defender. If you can move them around and continuously make them switch.”

Fran Fraschilla ranks Trey Burke No. 1 in his top 25 impact rankings:
In a season that has seen some outstanding point guard play, Burke is clearly the best all-around player at his position in college basketball. Averaging 18 points per game, he has been in double figures in every game. And in addition to averaging seven assists per game, he has a very impressive 3.7-1 assist-to...
