Trey Burke apologizes to Michigan teammates for suspension

Andy Lyons

The sophomore guard returns to action after a disciplinary suspension forced him to miss the Wolverines' first exhibition game.

The No. 5 Michigan Wolverines welcomed guard Trey Burke back to the court in their exhibition win over Saginaw Valley State on Monday night. The sophomore guard served a one-game suspension handed down by coach John Beilein for disciplinary reasons and missed Michigan's opening exhibition game last week against Northern Michigan.

Burke appeared in sync with his teammates on the court Monday, scoring 16 points and delivering eight assists in the 76-48 win. Before returning to game action with his team, Burke apologized for his actions which disrupted the team's start to the season and warranted a suspension.

"Obviously, I apologized about the situation," Burke said. "It was a situation in the summer, I've apologized a couple times to them about it. We've moved on from it.

"We're ready to get the season started."

Burke led the Wolverines in scoring last season with 14.8 points per game while also dishing out 4.6 assists per game. Michigan is one of three Big Ten teams ranked among the top five in the country, and Burke will play a key role in any success the Wolverines have in the competitive conference.

The Wolverines host Slippery Rock at Crisler Arena on Friday night.
