Stat Tracker: Burke putting up big numbers
By now, everyone knows Trey Burke is good at basketball. That is certainly no secret.
Even though is basketball exploits are well-established, his true impact on the Wolverines' offensive output is still astounding.
Burke ranks 18th nationally in "offensive rating," which is calculated by dividing points produced (through field goals, free throws, assists and offensive rebounds) by individual possessions, then multiplying by 100.
Burke's offensive rating is 128.09, which is doubly impressive when you consider just how much he handles the ball.
Burke is the only player in the nation who ranks in the top 20 in offensive rating and top 200 in possessions. Burke ranks 75th nationally with 405 total individual possessions.
He is also one of just 10 players who rank in the top 200 nationally in both offensive rating and percentage of possible minutes played (No. 93 at 85.8 percent of the minutes played).
Only two other players in the top 20 nationally in offensive rating rank in the top 250 in percentage of minutes played: N.C. State's Scott Wood (offensive rating, 128.62 and minutes percentage, 82.7) and Kansas' Travis Releford (offensive rating, 130.38 and minutes percentage, 82.5).
