Northwestern-Michigan Preview 1-11-12

(AP) — Although Darius Morris left for the NBA following last season, Michigan hasn’t lost a step with freshman Trey Burke taking over at point guard.

Northwestern is in a similar position with freshman Dave Sobolewski replacing one of the program’s best floor leaders.

Burke and the No. 13 Wolverines go for their 12th consecutive home win Wednesday night against the well-rested Wildcats, who are looking to snap a nine-game road skid against ranked opponents.

After leading the Big Ten in assists as a sophomore last season, Morris left the Wolverines and was drafted in the second round by the Los Angeles Lakers. That was a potentially huge loss for the program, but the addition of Burke, the 2011 Mr. Basketball in Ohio, has helped Michigan (13-3, 3-1) get off to its best start since 2008-09.
