Double-dip for Burke: Michigan basketball freshman picks up pair of Big Ten honors
On Sunday, Trey Burke set a career high.
On Monday, he reaped the rewards.
The Michigan basketball freshman point guard picked up a pair of weekly honors from the Big Ten Conference, sharing the Player of the Week honor with Michigan State sophomore guard Keith Appling, while also earning his third Big Ten Freshman of the Week .
Burke is Michigan's second-leading scorer at 14 points per game and the team's leading assist-man with five per game. He's averaging 3.2 rebounds, shooting 76 percent from the foul line and 36.5 percent from 3-point range.
Burke's co-Player of the Week honor was the second of the season for Michigan, as Tim Hardaway Jr. won the award on Nov. 28.
Appling, a Michigan State point guard, averaged 19.5 points, 5.5 assists and 3.5 rebounds during the Spartans wins over Indiana and Nebraska last week. Monday marked the second time this season Appling has been honored by the Big Ten as a Player of the Week.
