Burke quietly the reason Michigan is in this

By Matt Norlander | College Basketball Writer

ATLANTA -- The first half was all about Spike Albrecht, and then Luke Hancock.

But it's Burke, who's at 14 points on 5-of-6 shooting and 3 for 3 from 3-point range as of this post, that's the reason Michigan's still in the thick of this.

The national player of the year missed much of the first half due to foul trouble. He's dodged that in the second half to this point -- a 61-58 Louisville lead with nine minutes to go -- and should be good for the long.

Burke's gone back to his long-range ways. It's been fun. Let's look.

And as we head down the stretch here, it might not be Burke who takes the biggest shot, but without him facilitating and keeping the offense greased, the Wolverines have no shot.

But he's in, and a terrific game continues. I love the unpredictability on the table.
