(RNN) – Michigan sophomore Trey Burke has been the model of consistency.

He scored in double-digits every game this year and all but three his freshman year. He had four or more assists in all but two games this season, and he led the team in steals.

Burke beat out Victor Oladipo for Big Ten Player of the Year, becoming the first Wolverine to win the league's highest honor since Glen Rice in 1989.

Sports Illustrated named Burke its national player of the year. He is also one of five finalists for the Bob Cousy Award, given annually to the nation's best college point guard, and a finalist for the Wooden Award.

The 6-footer led the 2012-2013 Wolverines with an average of 19.2 points per game. He hit 47.9 percent from the floor and averaged 6.7 assists per game.

The Columbus, OH, native played at Northland High School with former Ohio State forward Jared Sullinger, who was drafted in the first round by the Boston Celtics in 2012. Burke is projected as a mid-first rounder by NBADraft.net if he leaves school after the season.

    Erin Brockovich and Robert Bowcock have been fighting for people to have access to clean drinking water for decades. Unfortunately, that fight is just as important now as it was in 1993 when Brockovich began her crusade against companies contaminating water sources.
