ANN ARBOR, Mich. (WOOD) - Michigan sophomore point guard Trey Burke has added more trophies to his collection.
On Friday he earned the John R. Wooden Award and U.S. Basketball Writers Association (USBWA) Oscar Robertson Trophy, presented to the Men's Basketball Division I National Player of the Year.
He becomes the first Wolverine in program history to receive the Wooden Award and second to earn the Oscar Robertson, joining U-M legend Cazzie Russell (1966), according to the team's website.
The Oscar Robertson Award, given annually by the USBWA, was formerly known as the USBWA Player of the Year Award until it was renamed in honor of two-time award winner, Oscar Robertson, in 1998. Russell garnered the USBWA Player of the Year Award in 1966.
