The announcement will be at 11:15 AM
Trey Burke wins Wooden Award
I'm going to guess that PG from Michigan. He's pretty swell.
"I think Trey Burke should win this award,"
I'm not sure what exactly this open thread is going to accomplish.
Richard Pitino is a pretty impressive guy. Says they're going to press on every possession. I went on the record that they were pretty stupid to fire Tubby...But this kid might work out for them.
can't go wrong with the name. They will get some kids just based on his Patinoness.
Minnesota's immediate scheme for recruiting.
In a living room somewhere in the Midwest -
"Honey, Coach Patino is on the line."
"Was that Rick or Rich?"
"I dont know, he didnt say"
That would be great for us, since Beilein's teams value the ball so well. More VCU-style beatdowns to come?
Burke winning this award will be about as surprising as Auburn being hit with allegations.
But him staying for next year will be about as likely as Auburn seeing any punishment.
Well played sir well played.
All the way
2 words TREY BURKE
is no question that this award is going to Victor Oledipo. He did have 18 points like twice this year and Dick Vitale believes him to be like Michael Jordan and Dwayne Wade combined - "ONLY BETTER BABY!!"
Rare shot of Trey Burke in his new private practice facility
Ohio fans would *still* rather have either Craft or Scott, tee hee.
Not any of the ones I know. But I'm sure some would.
And Staee fans will still say that Keith Appling is better than Trey Burke.
Alfonso the great.
Is Tree Rollins a past winner of this award?
No. Loved Tree growing up as a Hawks fan.
Just trying to pass the time on my flight from PDX to ATL.
4:30 wake up call has diminished my sense of humor.
1484's comment wins the internet for today
Is there a place to see this? Or just going to be a press release via Newswire?
ESPN has "WOODEN AWARD LIVE" coming up next.
Loved the lead-in, helped boost my confidence just a little bit higher :)
Congrats to him: now go win the big one on Monday night!
How about we win the one tomorrow night first?
Wooden Award winners are bound by neither time nor space.
Trey Burke can win these next two games in whichever order he darn well pleases.
Yea if us as fans look ahead our team is bound to lose
If I was on a diving board and said I dried off after getting out of the pool, would you still say jump in the pool first? Pretty obvious that we would have to win Saturday to win on Monday!
So well spoken and humble. Great representation of Michigan.
Well done Trey Burke!!!
What's the timeline for the Naismith award?
Is the Naismith more prestigious?
It's the Heisman of college basketball
Announcement is supposed to be April 7
Damn it's a good time to be a Michigan Fan. Still pinching myself to see if this is real.
Hail to the Conquering Heroes.
Wow, didn't see that one coming....
He has to get his number retired now, right? I would think so.
Im for it.
You've won all the awards, now go out and put a beat down on the Orange tomorrow night, and then proceed to capture that National Championship! Those who stay will be Champions!
i am a better man because of trey burke
"...fires the three...and the game is tied!" will ring in my brain forever.
Well done, Trey.
I think the Wooden voting ended before the Kansas game, while the Naismith voting ended after Trey's big shot. If that's correct, then Trey should win the Naismith by a bigger margin. The Wooden voting was pretty close.
Voting ends April 6th
Man when it's all said and done its going to be tough for any player to win the amount of awards he has. He must feel on top of the world.
It was a no brainer.
Between Trey's deserving of the Wooden Award and MGoMaizeAndBlue's avatar.
But the real question is, is it made of Wood?
We need a Trey Burke meme such as "all the hardware belongs to me" sorta deal. Definitely something better than that but pretty much something like that.
Congrats Trey! Such a great representative of Michigan! Now beat Syracuse!
when I updated the page and got Page Not Found.
Columbus, Ohio. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
Mike Martin Michigan Man of the year Award?
So basically he's a shoe-in for the Naismith too. A quick look showed the last time the Wooden and Naismith haven't gone to the same person was in '95.
Hands down no doubt about it!!! Well deserved Trey!!!
Seems like three or four have been announced in the past two days.
- Wooden Award
- Oscar Robertson Trophy
- Cousy Award
- AP Player of the Year
- SI National Player of the Year
- B10 Player of the Year
- Consensus first-team All-American
- NCAA South Regional Most Outstanding Player
Wow! Probably some I missed and hopefully at least one more coming.
Congrats to Trey on his outstanding accomplishments.
Burke just won't leave any awards out for other people.
Yep, just like he avoids other turnovers.
I think this is the fourth time in the last 24 hours that we've had occasion to congratulate Trey Burke, and this time for the Wooden Award. As I recall, he's a finalist for the Naismith too, and I think that announcement is Sunday. Go for the sweep, Trey, and congratulations yet again!
I can't remember anyone ever sweeping so many awards. Tis truly impressive.
