Trey Burke Continues to Shine

Video is from a different event

Over the weekend, Trey Burke led his Columbus based squad to the All-Ohio Nike City Series championship in dramatic fashion, with a win over the Cincinnati-based squad. In the championship, Burke went head-to-head with Florida State commitment Aaron Thomas (Rivals top 50) and while Thomas scored 34 points, Burke scored 33 and earned the win.

A number of Ohio based scouts were on hand and most were impressed with Burke’s performance (again). Burke was named MVP of the event, and both the Buckeye Prep Report and Ohio High School Hoops were impressed. Here is what Ohio High High School hoops had to say about Burke’s performance:

The game featured arguably the top players in the Class of 2011 in Columbus Northland’s Trey Burke (Michigan) and Cincinnati Withrow’s Aaron Thomas (Florida State). Neither disappointed us.

In one sequence, amidst the first half, Burke and Thomas put on a one-on-one show which included three straight triples from Thomas and two triples and a high-major pull-up from Burke. The succession put the packed house inside Whitehall’s main gym into frenzy. The crowd was cheering and urging the two on as the Mr. Basketball candidates went head-to-head in an instant classic. The two were letting each other know about it, but it was all done in good spirits which was awesome to see.
