Suns Draft Central

Point Guard | 6’-1”| 175 lbs. | Michigan

Trey Burke took ownership of the Michigan team this past season, and all the Wolverines did was make it to the championship game of the NCAA Tournament. Playing in arguably the strongest conference in the nation, Burke averaged 18.6 points, 6.7 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.6 steals per game – good enough to win the Naismith Player of the Year Award. But he may have saved his best performance for when his team needed him most. Burke showed how clutch he could be by scoring 23 second-half points – including a beyond-NBA-range three-pointer that forced overtime – during a 87-85 win against Kansas to get his team to the Final Four.

“As a sophomore, Burke had one of the greatest point guard seasons since advanced statistics have been tracked (from 2003-on); only Jon Scheyer's 2010 Duke campaign is on a similar level. Burke used 29.0 percent of Michigan's possessions with a 121.2 offensive rating, according to kenpom.com, while handing out 6.7 assists per game against just 2.2 turnovers. It takes a special leader to turn a green team -- the Wolverines ranked 342nd (out of 347 D-I teams) in experience -- into the nation's most efficient offense, but that's what Burke did.”
