Burke, Hardaway earn additional recognition at Nike Skills Academies

Dylan Burkhardt

940x[1]Slam Online selected a top 20 performer list from the various Nike Skills Academies in Chicago over the past week. Burke and Hardaway both made the cut:

Trey Burke, 6-0, Sophomore, Michigan
Burke was one of the nation’s top freshmen last season and after flirting with declaring for the Draft, looks poised to build on his debut campaign, as he showcased an improved outside stroke, which should help a loaded Wolverines squad attempt to get back to the program’s glory days.

Tim Hardaway Jr, 6-5, Junior, Michigan
A wing sniper with length and athleticism, Hardaway attacked defenders off the dribble for pull-up jumpers or dynamic forays to the rim, while showing an all-around game, as he made a strong effort on the boards and defensive end.

    interesting to read the end of the list the write ups on Thomas and Ross.

    Big 10 could be beastly at the top with IU, Michigan, Ohio, Sparties, and Wisconsin.

      Yep and Minnesota should be pretty good too. I also think Illinois will be better now that they’ve finally rid themselves of that court jester they called a head coach for far too long.

    An improvement on the defensive end for Hardaway will be a welcome addition to his overall game

  • Mattski

    Burke’s decision to stay already paying off. I just hope that the new guys can all learn the sets and handle his passing. And Hardaway with confidence restored (and taller?). . . watch out.
