Michigan Burke BasketballTrey Burke was named one of six preseason All-Americans by the Associated Press. Burke earned 16 votes to tie for the fifth spot on the team.

The 6-foot Burke averaged 14.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and 4.6 assists in a freshman season that saw the Wolverines crack the top 10 and share the Big Ten title.

“I’m pumped,” Burke said of the upcoming season. “I’m really excited. The level of talent we have, I’m excited to see how far we can go.”

Big Ten players make up three of the top six spots with Cody Zeller (Indiana), Doug McDermott (Creighton), Isaiah Canaan (Murray State), Deshaun Thomas (Ohio State) and CJ McCollum (Lehigh) rounding out the six man team.
