ISSUE OF THE DAY
Trey Burke's last nine games have been ridiculous -- 19.1 points, 7.4 assists and just 10 turnovers.
Burke's been masterful, but can he continue at this pace? Everyone has bad days at some point.
During Michigan's lone meeting against Iowa last season in Iowa City, Burke was saddled with early foul trouble and Michigan was blown out in one of its most embarrassing performances of the season.
Iowa freshman point guard Mike Gesell has been a pleasant surprise for the Hawkeyes so far this season, but he's not Burke.
And, given the Hawkeyes' consistent desire to push the tempo. Burke could be in for another massive game during the Wolverines' Big Ten home opener.
Trey Burke's had a pretty good year and a half in Ann Arbor -- who was the last Michigan point guard to perform at this level?
