Every time Burke goes against Craft he gives up after Craft gets in his face for the 1st half.
I would've kept Thompson on Hardaway, that was the only time he was affected on his jump shot...
He's not overrated he's a damn good PG. probably the best in the NCAA. Craft is just that good as an on ball defender and Burke needs the ball to create his shot.
I'm referring to how he "gives up" instead of working harder without the ball to get open...
I understand I just don't agree at all. Working without the ball is not a strength of his but its honestly not for almost every PG and does not make him overrated. When you have the ball in your hands 80 percent of the time and that's your job it's hard to break that habit. Oh and he is killing us right now toward the end of this game.

We'll agree to disagree....
You're wrong dude. Give it up.
This thread = Epic Fail!
Burke is one of the best PGs in the NCAA!
On a side note, Michigan still sucks!
Well, we will see how he does in the next level....I'll stand by my opinion that he doesn't work hard enough without the ball in his hands. His best chance to try to wear Craft down is when he doesn't have the ball, constantly moving making Craft work off the ball. Once you have the ball and Craft is on you it's a battle. One of the oldest rules in BBall, whether it's the other teams best scorer or best defender on the ball, run him to death while covering you without the ball in your hands.
I think Burke is overrated. He is a volume scorer. He has to be the teams scorer if they have a chance of winning. I'm not saying this kid sucks by any means. But when you bring the ball up every time and you are the teams go to guy, well him and hardaway, he's going to score a lot.
We are coming for you Bama!
He wasn't their main scorrer tonight and they won. He had 8 assists and 2 of them were to Hardaway. He shot 12 times which is as many times as Craft. He is far from a combo guard running the point.
Craft is his Kryptonite, but to call him overrated seems a bit much . Burke is silly good.
