On suspending Trey Burke for tomorrow’s game against Northern Michigan:
You obviously got the press release here, so that’s all I would prefer to say about it. Trey is a good kid but he’s going to sit out this game and he’ll learn a very valuable experience. It gives us a good opportunity now for some of our guys. There’s probably thirty minutes available for them to play, and we look forward to seeing those guys play out there. In the meantime, our practices have been spirited and we’ve been making progress but we’re probably still not sure what way we’re going to play quite yet, so we’re still experimenting like crazy.
On Spike Albrecht:
Spike will start tomorrow

Sophomore PG Trey Burke has been suspended for the Northern Michigan game (exhibition) tomorrow.

He didn’t just replace Morris, he was better than Morris. Expectations for Burke’s sophomore year have gone from hopeful to assumed. Rather than unknown freshman, Burke is a...
