Michigan Wolverine sophomore guard extraordinaire and multiple player-of-the-year award winner Trey Burke made it official Sunday, he’s moving on to the NBA.
Trey Burke made the announcement during a press conference called by Michigan Athletics to communicate the news from Ann Arbor.
The Naismith and Wooden award winner and Big Ten Player of the Year contributed 18.6 points-per-game and 6.7 assists-a-contest. Burke led his Wolverines to a 31-8 season record. The team made it to the title game only days ago and lost a close battle to the Hall of Fame to-be coach Rick Pitino and his Louisville Cardinals. Nothing to be ashamed of.
Coach John Beilein made particular mention that Trey Burke played for the Michigan Wolverines at a “very important” time and was publicly supportive of what Burke had done for the university as a whole.
The Wolverines restored much of their basketball traditions this year or at least established possibly new traditions of basketball excellence to follow in Ann Arbor.
Regardless, for Trey Burke congratulations!
Hail Yeah! Go Blue!!
