2013 NBA Draft stock watch: Trey Burke's heroics propel Michigan to big comeback win

USA TODAY Sports

Michigan point guard Trey Burke had a poor first half, but picked it up in the second and hit a huge shot for the Wolverines Friday.

Michigan Wolverines sophomore point guard Trey Burke got off to a slow start against the Kansas Jayhawks in Michigan's loss to Kansas Friday. That didn't deter him from delivering late in the game, however.

Burke didn't make a shot in the first half as Michigan trailed by as many as 14 points in the game, and he shot just 4-for-11 from three-point range in regulation, but one of those threes was a 30-footer with four seconds remaining to complete a comeback for Michigan and send the game to overtime, where Michigan eventually won, 87-85.

Burke finished with 23 points, and even when his shot wasn't falling he kept Michigan in striking distance with his passing, finishing with 10 assists.

Burke has indicated that he'd likely enter the NBA Draft if Michigan wins the National Championship this season. If he does declare for the draft, he'd likely be a top-15 pick, particularly because his pure point-guard skill set projects favorably to NBA-style basketball. DraftExpress currently projects Burke to go No. 10 overall.
