Trey Burke is AP Player of the Year

USA TODAY Sports

In other news: duh.

It was the announcement we were all waiting for. Trey Burke is the player of the year:

Burke becomes the second Michigan basketball player to be named the AP men's player of the year, joining Cazzie Russell in 1966. He received 31 first-place votes, with Georgetown forward Otto Porter finishing second with 16 votes and Indiana guard Victor Oladipo third with 10 votes.

No word on when the investigation begins into who dare cast votes against Trey.

All kidding aside, this was a no-brainer decision, and Burke has earned every bit of the praise he has been given. His play was the catalyst for much of Michigan's success during the season, and he is having one of the best statistical years any Big Ten player has put together in the recent past.

Oh yeah, he does stuff like this.

Am I ever going to get tired of watching that? No. No I'm not.

Burke also picked up the Cousy award for the nation's top point guard.

The Wooden Award will be announced this weekend. I'll eat my computer if Burke doesn't win it.
