No Reason For Michigan Wolverines Basketball to Panic
With the loss of Trey Burke to the NBA, the Michigan Wolverines faithful are fearful that their hopes of cutting down the nets in 2014 are over. While Burke was a key cog to the Wolverines Final Four team last year, his presence will not be missed as dearly as some think.
Now, had both Mitch McGary and Glen Robinson III decided to join Burke in the professional ranks then maybe there could be some cause for concern, but hoops are alive and well in Ann Arbor. McGary was projected to go late in the 2013 NBA Draft lottery, however the freshman forward believes he has a lot to improve upon with the Wolverines. Perhaps a bit of unfinished business remains for a Michigan team that was derailed by the Louisville Cardinals in the NCAAB National Championship game.
McGary was huge for the Wolverines down the stretch, but he was a role player at the end of the day and Robinson’s impact was much greater. In 2013 Robinson played more minutes than any other freshman in Michigan Wolverines Basketball history–it’s safe to say that Robinson was the glue-guy to the team last year. Without Robinson I would be worried, however his stability combined with talent from the incoming freshman class makes the program primed for another Final Four appearance.
Burke’s replacement will be freshman guard Derrick Walton who enters the collegiate level as the second ranked prep player in the state of Michigan–the Wolverines former point guard was ranked number three in Michigan when he left for Ann Arbor.
