Tim Hardaway Jr., Trey BurkePaul Biancardi/ESPN.comTim Hardaway Jr. and Trey Burke are working on involving their teammates more in the offense at the LeBron James Skills Academy.
Tim Hardaway Jr. and Trey Burke were two of just 25 college players invited to the LeBron James Skills Academy in Las Vegas over the weekend. The duo got to face some of the nation's top talent, including Penn State's Tim Frazier and Duke's Mason Plumlee and Ryan Kelly.

With the event open to NBA scouts, Burke had the opportunity to show off his game to the professionals after having flirted with leaving Michigan. But with only a few months to prepare for his sophomore season, Burke has his sights set on making the Wolverines better.

"My focus is to bring more to the team than just scoring," Burke said. "I am trying to get everyone involved and making others around me better. Having the feel of scoring and running the point is one of the biggest things that I must learn. I am working on that in every session here at camp."

Michigan basketball coach John Beilein spoke to the media on Friday to discuss all things Michigan basketball. Here are some of the key points he touched on:

  • ON JORDAN MORGAN AND EVAN SMOTRYCZ'S INJURIES: Beilein said he wouldn't know too much more until after Saturday's practice. The practice was going to be a light one, and the coach noted that the two would be seeing trainers. Beilein said he hadn't heard that it was anything major or structural to the injuries.
  • ON WHETHER HE COULD ROOT FOR OHIO STATE: If the Buckeyes beat Michigan State in East Lansing the Wolverines will earn a share of the Big Ten title. "I don't know if I will be rooting for anyone," Beilein said. "I will be watching the scoreboard. How about that? I'll be watching the scoreboard with great interest."

Three keys vs. Penn State

Big Ten season has finally arrived and while Michigan might say it is looking forward to it, everything becomes a lot more difficult. Yes, the Wolverines have played some difficult early season games (Duke and Memphis in Maui along with Virginia, Iowa State and Oakland), but the Big Ten is the nation's best league this season.

And it might not be close.

So this is what Michigan enters tonight against Penn State, a team it swept last season and one expected to finish toward the bottom of the league. It makes games like these, against a bottom-tier team at home, become more critical for the Wolverines to win. How will Michigan do that?

Burke a Cousy nominee

Michigan freshman point guard Trey Burke has had a surprising rookie year for the Wolverines, and the award committees are taking notice.

Burke was one of 60 candidates named Monday for the Bob Cousy Award, given to the country's top point guard. He is averaging 13.1 points and 4.7 assists this season.

Burke is one of five Big Ten point guards on the list, joining Ohio State's Aaron Craft, Purdue's Lewis Jackson, Penn State's Tim Frazier and Wisconsin's Jordan Taylor.

Interestingly, this nomination comes a season after former Michigan point guard Darius Morris -- eventually a second-round pick of the Los Angeles Lakers -- was snubbed from the Cousy Award list.
