1. Trey Burke
Sophomore 6’0 , 190 lbs.
Trey Burke is an outstanding combo guard with an array of skills. He is one of the best scoring point guards in the country and is also an astounding playmaker for the Michigan Wolverines. He averages 18.0 ppg, 2.9 rpg and is ninth in the NCAA in assists, with 7.2 apg. Burke will without a doubt, be a finalist for the John Wooden Award( given to the nation’s best player) and the Bob Cousy Award( awarded to the nation’s best point guard).
2. Michael Carter-Williams
Sophomore 6’6 , 185 lbs.
Michael Carter Williams definitely has NBA scouts salivating. He is averaging 11.9 ppg, 4.9 rpg and is #1 in the country in assists, with 9.4 apg. He is a matchup nightmare for many guards because he is a 6’6 point guard. Although not an accurate shooter, he uses his athleticism to score points. He also uses his length to get past his opponents and slither through the defense. Carter-Williams also uses his long arms as an advantage on defense by averaging 3.18 steals per game(4th-best in the country).
3. Phil Pressey
Junior 5’11 , 175 lbs.
Phil Pressey’s prime objective in the game is to simply, find the open man. Pressey is a pinpoint passer who can thread the needle through even the tightest of spaces. Pressey is averaging 12.9 ppg, 3.3 rpg and is eighth in the NCAA in assists, with 7.3 apg. Pressey has also taken on more of a scoring role this year because of the departure of Missouri’s best scorers last year. Phil Pressey is extremely quick and uses his blazing speed to penetrate the defense. Pressey is a great leader and is truly a general on the floor.
