Michigan sophomore point guard Trey Burke was named Big Ten Player of the Year this evening. Burke was selected as Player of the Year by both coaches and the media.

Burke is the first Michigan player to win Big Ten Player of the Year honors since Glen Rice in 1989. Burke led the Big Ten in both scoring and assists with averages of  20.2 points and 6.4 assists in Big Ten games. He was the only player in the conference to score at least 15 points in every league game this season.

Tim Hardaway Jr. also earned First Team All-Big Ten honors according to Big Ten coaches. Michigan’s junior guard averaged 14 points per game in conference play. Hardaway has now earned All-Big Ten honors in each of his first three seasons in Ann Arbor. He was named to the third team last year and received honorable mention and All-Freshman honors in his rookie season.

Jordan Morgan earned a nod on the All-Big Ten Defensive team long with Victor Oladipo, Aaron Craft, Jared Bergrren and Shannon Scott.

Freshman Glenn Robinson III was named to the league’s All-Freshman team along with Freshman of the Year Gary Harris, Yogi Ferrell, Sam Dekker and AJ Hammons. Robinson also earned honorable mention honors from the coaches.

Big Ten Player of the Year could be the first of many prestigious honors for Trey Burke. Michigan’s point guard was also named a first team Sporting News All-American earlier today. If he ends up a unanimous first team All-American he would be just the fifth Wolverine to accomplish that feat, joining Cazzie Russell (1985, 86), Rickey Green (1977), Gary Grant (1988) and Chris Webber (1993).

Burke is also a finalist for the John Wooden and Oscar Robertson Player of the Year awards as well as the Bob Cousy Award for the nation’s best point guard.
