Trey Burke named to AP preseason All-America team

Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

Michigan sophomore Trey Burke was named an Associated Press preseason All-American on Monday.

Michigan sophomore point guard Trey Burke was named an Associated Press preseason All-American on Monday. Burke is the first Michigan player to be named to the team since Chris Webber was selected in 1993.

Burke, who averaged 14.8 points and 4.6 assists as a freshman last season, was one of six players named to the preseason All-American team on Monday. He was also one of three players from the Big Ten to make the list, joining Indiana's Cody Zeller and Ohio State's Deshaun Thomas.

In addition to Zeller and Thomas, Isaiah Canaan of Murray State, C.J. McCollum of Lehigh and Doug McDermott of Creighton joined Burke on the All-American list. Burke was named on 16 of the 65 ballots, tying him for fifth with McCollum.

The All-American nomination comes a year after Burke was named to the preseason AP honorable mention list. Burke is a major reason why the Wolverines opened the season as the No. 5 team in the country and are considered one of the top contenders in the Big Ten.
