Alfonso Clark “Trey” Burke III won the 2011–12 Big Ten Co-Freshman of the Year award at the University of Michigan. He followed up that year by not only being named a consensus first team NCAA Men’s Basketball All-American in 2013, but winning nearly all the possible National Player of the Year awards: Wooden, AP, NABC, Naismith, Robertson and Sports Illustrated.
After his sophomore year, Burke entered the 2013 NBA Draft, where he was taken 9th overall by the Utah Jazz. Burke has never been able to replicate his success in the NBA, though. The Utah Jazz traded him to the Washington Wizards after three disappointing seasons. He is currently playing the best basketball of his career, as a member of the New York Knicks.
