Burke's return boosts Michigan

  •  

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - For about three weeks, Michigan fans wondered whether Trey Burke was going to turn pro.

If he did, the Wolverines would enter this season with a major hole to fill. If Burke stayed, Michigan would be among the favorites for the Big Ten title - and possibly an extended NCAA tournament run.

There didn't seem to be any middle ground.

Burke decided to put off the NBA and remain with the Wolverines, and sure enough, his team enters the 2012-13 season amid high expectations. With Tim Hardaway Jr. and Jordan Morgan also back - and a highly touted recruiting class arriving - Michigan looks ready to contend for another conference crown after sharing the title last season.
