Michigan guard Trey Burke just completed a season where he went from an underrated prospect to one of the best guards in the Big Ten.
He earned half of the league's Rookie of the Year along with Indiana's Cody Zeller, guided Michigan to a NCAA tournament berth and made some almost forget about last year's point guard, Darius Morris.
He also finished his season with something else. In scoring 504 points and setting a Michigan freshman record with 156 assists, he became the 10th freshman in the Big Ten since 1979-80 to lead his team in points and assists, joining a pretty elite group.
Big Ten freshmen to lead team in total points and assists since 1980:
Trey Burke, Michigan (2011-12): 504 points (14.8 ppg.); 156 assists (4.6 apg.)
