It didn’t take Trey Burke very long to do something special in the Big Ten Semifinal matchup between the Michigan Wolverines and the Wisconsin Badgers. Burke is a National Player of the Year candidate, and is hoping to lead the Wolverines to a Big Ten Tournament title.
Less than ten minutes into the first half vs Wisconsin, Burke threw up an insane half-court alley-oop to teammate Tim Hardaway Jr., who threw it down hard on the Badgers. Here’s a video of the play:

Just a few minutes later, however, Hardaway Jr. landed awkwardly on his ankle had Michigan fans were concerned:

BEST OF MAXIM
Michigan basketball did today what they couldn’t do in Happy Valley, the finished off Penn State. Eerily for Michigan fans, the Wolverines went up by 15 at nearly the exact same time they did on the road v. this same team. This time, Michigan dropped the hammer and won by a final knockout of 83-66.

Michigan basketball was dealt an abrupt departure from the Big Ten Tournament thanks to a Wisconsin team that flipped the offensive switch in the 2nd half and overwhelmed the Wolverines. Perhaps it was Wisconsin shooting a putrid 5-29 from the field in the 1st half that lulled the Michigan defense to sleep. Whatever the case, the Badgers caught their opponent playing a step slow...
CHICAGO - To believe in Michigan at this moment is to believe that Big Ten Player of the Year Trey Burke is really that good, capable of singular feats of NCAA tournament heroism.

Just like John Beilein drew it up. A step inside half-court, Trey Burke found Tim Hardaway Jr. for the huge alley-oop Friday during the quarterfinals of the Big Ten Tournament against Wisconsin.
SUCH GREAT HEIGHTS
Tim Hardaway Jr. put himself in the mix for best dunk of conference tournament week with an eye-popping alley-oop jam over top of Wisconsin’s Mike Bruesewitz in Friday’s Big Ten Tournament quarterfinal matchup. Eight minutes into the game, Michigan point guard Trey Burke threw a lob to Hardaway from a good 10 or 12 feet outside the 3-point arc. Hardaway did the rest, soaring...
GoBlueWolverines' Andre Barthwell goes 1-on-1 with Michigan assistant Jeff Meyer after the Wolverines 83-66 win over Penn State. Meyer touches on the change from the first half to the second half, Trey Burke's leadership, and the play of Horford and McGary.
This college basketball season has been like few others in my lifetime.
There has been a constant carousel at the top of the rankings, and there has been no clear-cut, consensus favorite for best team or player in the country.
In a year like this, it’s easy for a bunch of teams and players to split the vote, opening the door for a team like Gonzaga to sit atop the polls entering...
The Michigan basketball team has certainly been the tale of two completely different seasons.

Michigan’s so-called “revenge tour” turned out to be a rerun after the Wolverines lost to Wisconsin in the quarterfinal round of the Big Ten Tournament, 68-59. And while they will have to forget this loss quickly as attention turns collectively to the NCAA tournament, Michigan will have to address some season-long issues that were exposed once again against...
1) Michigan gets out on the fast break in the first half
Neither Michigan nor Wisconsin could get anything going on offense in the first half, but early on, at least Michigan seemed to have one recourse: its notoriously efficient fast-break attack. With Wisconsin missing pretty much everything, the Wolverines were free to get into run-out situations in which the Badgers only had...
