Michigan’s Burke picks up two more awards

Trey Burke is going to need a bigger trophy case.

Burke was named the Associated Press National Player of the Year on Thursday, and also picked up the Bob Cousy Award for the country’s best point guard. That adds to the awards he has already won, including Big Ten Player of the Year, eight First Team All-America selections and the Most Outstanding Player in the NCAA tournament’s South Regional.

The sophomore joins Cazzie Russell (1966) as the only Wolverine to win the AP Player of the Year award, and he’s the first player from Michigan to pick up the Cousy award since it started in 2004.
