Summer in Review: Derrick Walton

Point guard generally is considered the most important position on the basketball court. It’s also one of the more difficult positions to evaluate. Athletic wings that can attack the basket, tall shot blockers or dead eye shooters are easy to recognize while a true point guard needs to combine quickness, scoring ability, vision, leadership and an innate understanding of the game...

Most Success With The Least Depth: John Beilein

Luke Winn hands out coaching awards with a nod toward Michigan’s John Beilein for success without depth. The “need for depth” is a myth in college basketball: All four Final Four teams this season ranked 308th or lower in percentage of minutes by bench players. National champ Kentucky ranked 323rd, at 21.6 percent. You can get by with a short rotation, as long as it’s talented...

A Closer Look: Trey Burke

Last spring Trey Burke was spending his days collecting high school accolades and working out in the gym. He didn’t know what Darius Morris was going to do but it didn’t matter. Burke wanted to be the starting point guard in Ann Arbor. By the time Burke arrived at Michigan, Morris was a Los Angeles Laker and Burke was the only point guard on the Wolverine roster. Just a freshman...

Ferris St.-Michigan Preview

Darius Morris hurried down the court and managed one final shot - a runner in the lane that bounced off the back of the rim. Michigan was that close to taking Duke to overtime in last season's NCAA tournament, that close to extending a remarkable turnaround season at least five more minutes, with a round of 16 berth at stake. Although the Wolverines fell just short, they took...

2011-12 Player Preview: Trey Burke

John Beilein might run a two guard offense originally designed to minimize the importance of a point guard but last season showed what a luxury a great point guard can be to any team. Darius Morris was the sort of guard that could make something out of nothing, manufacture a basket and made all of his teammates better. Trey Burke’s career trajectory was accelerated in June when...

Morris gone, Michigan returns plenty of experience

Little was expected of Michigan at the start of last season, and as late as January the program seemed trapped near the bottom of the Big Ten. The team began to click down the stretch, not only making the NCAA tournament but routing Tennessee in its opening game before losing 73-71 to Duke. If they can replace point guard Darius Morris -- a second-round pick in the NBA draft -...
