Many have mentioned Trey Burke as a potential player of the year candidate (College Basketball Talk). He earned the hype in leading the No. 5 ranked Michigan Wolverines to a 16-0 start, while averaging 18.1 points, 7.5 assists and just 1.8 turnovers per game.
His numbers dipped a little (18 points, 7.1 assists and 1.9 turnovers) after his last game, but he's still obviously having a great year. Despite the impressive statistics, there are a few holes in his game.
Physically, he has most of the tools to become a better-than-average shoot-first NBA point guard, but at this point, I'd say he'd be wise to return to Ann Arbor for his junior season.
Although it was just one game, Burke's most recent performance on the road against the then No. 15 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes speaks to his lack of NBA-readiness.
Take a look at the following slides; I break down Burke's performance this season, and highlight the pros and cons from the Ohio State game.
I'll also highlight a few NBA draft prospects whose stocks are up and down.
Finally, international prospects aren't as big of a deal in the NBA draft as they once were, but there are still interesting players overseas. I discuss two of the more highly-touted, non-American draft hopefuls.
