The awards just keep coming for the Michigan basketball team.

Sophomore point guard Trey Burke earned Big Ten Player Of The Week honors for his strong start to the conference slate.

In the Wolverines' Big Ten opener, at Northwestern, Burke tallied 23 points, five assists and a career-high four steals in a 94-66 route. Sunday afternoon, he notched his third double-double of the season, with 19 points and 12 assists, in a 95-67 win vs. Iowa.

Through two conference games, Burke has totaled 17 assists to just three turnovers.

Freshman forward Glenn Robinson also earned recognition, winning the Big Ten Freshman Of The Week award, his first of the season.
