Well deserved too. He has great numbers but he also brought it during every game in the BIG - I think that one of the things that must have played heavily in the minds of the voters was that he scored 15 points in EVERY game. That kind of consistency in the brutal conference schedule is highly impressive.

This is awesome news and I'm glad to see that all those Big Ten player of the week honors actually added up to the real awards at the end of the season. I'm surprised by Hardaway on the first team, but I think that's because I watch Michigan more closely than any other team, so I see his faults more than other players in the conference. He also got the sportsmanship award for our team so a little bonus there. I'm glad we have a healthy Morgan back for the postseason and the conference obviously thought highly enough of him to put him on the defensive team.

Points aren't the only metric to look at when measuring who deserves player of the year. Oladipo was a very impactful all around player for IU. Trey was more vital to his teams success. He deserved the POY. Without him I think we struggle to be .500 in the B1G.

I hope Trey is a lottery pick, and signs a very fat contract.  After, of course, he finishes his college career with six wins in this year's NCAA Tournament.

I made it a point to watch EVERY game this year, exhibitions included, and will never forget the play of Burke. He is so smooth, confident, he wills wins, unselfishness, we can only hope he returns. Walton excites me though and Spike is steady...

Oladipo while very athletic benefits greatly from playing with Zeller.  He makes sensational plays on occasions, but disappears too.

Burke was the first player (ever ?) to score at least 15 points in every B1G conference game this year ... which neither Zeller or Oladipo did.

Congrats Trey ... undisputed Championship awaits next year plus a guaranteed top 3 ranking if you return.  Maybe Lewan can have a chat with him .... 

Go Blue!

Matthew Dellavedova of St. Mary's just had a complete stinker of a game against the Zags, finishing with 2 points on 1-8 shooting (0-4 3pt), 7 assists, and 3 turnovers.

A performance like that in a game that some might say St. Mary's needed to win (or at least come damn close to doing so) probably pushes the Aussie out the door.  Next!

Lose your wy to the top.  As long as you get player of the year and EA NCAA14 cover who cares? right?
