Michigan suspends Burke for exhibition opener
Michigan guard Trey Burke has been suspended for the Wolverines’ exhibition opener Thursday against Northern Michigan. The school says Burke will sit out for violating team standards. Coach John Beilein says the sophomore is a good kid but made some “out-of-character” decisions he now regrets.
Burke, an AP preseason All-American, led Michigan to a share of the Big Ten crown last season. He’s as big a reason as any Michigan enters the season ranked No. 5 in both the preseason AP and Coaches polls.
