Trey Burke gets another honor, named Wooden Award winner

(WXYZ) - The awards keep piling up for Trey Burke. The Michigan point guard was named the Wooden Award winner as Player of the Year in a private ceremony Friday.

The Wolverines sophomore already won the AP Player of the Year Award and the Oscar Robertson Player of the Year trophy.

"I'm definitely honored to receive these awards," Burke said Friday.

"I may not seem happy, but I really am. I'm just focused on Saturday."

Burke led the Wolverines to their first Final Four appearance in twenty years, averaging 19 points, 6 assists and 3  rebounds per game.

His last-second shot against Kansas in the Sweet Sixteen will go down in history as one of the most dramatic in NCAA Tournament history, as it evened the game and forced overtime.

The Wolverines went on to beat Kansas and advance to the Final Four with a win over Florida.
