Michigan sophomore point guard Trey Burke added another national player of the year honor on Sunday when he was named the winner of the Naismith Trophy.

Burke had already won the Associated Press, Wooden and Robertson player of the year awards earlier in the weekend.

The other finalists for the Naismith award were Doug McDermott (Creighton), Victor Oladipo (Indiana) and Otto Porter Jr. (Georgetown).

Burke is the only one of the finalists still alive in the NCAA Tournament, with the Wolverines scheduled to play Louisville in the championship game on Monday.
