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.)
- **Talor Battle, Penn State (2007-08): 317 points (10.2 ppg.); 99 assists (3.2 apg.)
