Congrats to Trey Burke on being named to the first team of the US Basketball Writers Association All-America team. He's the first Wolverine on the USBWA first team since Chris Webber in 1993. Jalen Rose, who was placed on the second team in 1994, is the last Michigan player to earn USBWA All-American honors. Burke is the 15th all-time to be named to either the first or second team.

After already being named to the Sporting News first team, Burke's in great shape to become Michigan's sixth consensus All-American. The NCAA uses the SN, USBWA, NABC, and AP teams to determine the consensus first- and second-teamers.

Cazzie Russell 1965
Cazzie Russell 1966
Rickey Green 1977
