Best In Basketball? Trey Burke And Tim Hardaway Jr. Form A Formidable Backcourt Combo S By John Borton ome scoffed at the notion that Tim Hardaway Jr. could transition into Michigan's backcourt this season. More than a few schools passed on going hard after Trey Burke in recruiting. Those positions have been reconsidered like a bridge jumper realizing gravity is serious business roughly five seconds into the flight. These days, more than a few are paying attention to Burke, the versatile sophomore point guard, and Hardaway, the smooth junior shooting guard. In fact, there are those who pose the question, without a clear answer: Is there a better combination in college basketball? Burke was U-M's leading scorer during the team's 17-1 start to the season, averaging 18.0 points per game while also dishing out a Big Ten-best 7.2 assists per contest. photo by per kjeldsen
