Trey Burke has already decided to turn pro. As for the rest of Michigan’s possible early entries to the NBA draft — no additional news.
The University of Michigan men’s basketball team recognized the efforts and achievements of its players and staff at the 52nd annual U-M Basketball Awards Celebration this evening at Crisler Center.
According to reports Michigan sophomore guard Trey Burke is opting to enter the NBA draft.
Trey Burke is reportedly not going to take a another stab at winning a national championship.
The preseason No. 2 team finishes 35-5 and wins 16 in a row to close the season, culminating with a national championship. No dominant team in college basketball this year?
The season that none of us could predict is set to give us a title game that none of us will forget.
I was right behind the Michigan bench, surrounded by friends and family of the team that many wrote off just a few weeks ago as they clinched a spot in the National Title game, one win away from history.
“It was just a matter of putting all the pieces together — everybody understanding their role,” Burke said. “Now that we’re here, it’s definitely surreal. It feels really good to be here. We’re having a lot of fun.”
Had the pleasure to talk with Matt Park and Matt Roe, who will call the Syracuse vs. Michigan National Semi-Final Saturday night in Atlanta.
This comes on the heels of Burke winning the Associated Press Basketball National Player of the Year and Bob Cousy Collegiate Point Guard of the Year awards the day before.
