Trey Burke named AP Player of the Year

USA TODAY Sports

Michigan's Trey Burke is starting to rack up the postseason accolades. He has won both AP Player of the Year and the Bob Cousey Award for most outstanding point guard in the nation.

Michigan Wolverines point guard Trey Burke has been named the AP Player of the Year, in recognition of his standout season. He has also won the 2013 Bob Cousey Collegiate Point Guard of the Year Award.

The sophomore has been one of the key players in Michigan's first Final Four appearance since 1993. He averaged 18.8 points, 3.1 rebounds, 6.8 assists and 1.6 steals per game, leading the Big Ten in both scoring and assist averages. Perhaps his most famous performance came in the Sweet 16 against Kansas, when he scored 18 second-half points to lead the Wolverines back from a 14-point deficit and drained a 30-foot shot to send the game to overtime. Michigan would go on to win that game and knock a No. 1 seed out of the tournament.

In addition to the AP and Cousey awards, Burke has also won Big Ten Player of the Year, the Sports Illustrated National Player of the Year and was named to the All-American first team.
