ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Trey Burke is leaving Michigan early for the NBA draft.

The Associated Press national player of the year announced his decision Sunday. The move comes as no surprise. Burke considered going pro a year ago but decided to come back for his sophomore season. He led Michigan to the NCAA title game, where the Wolverines lost to Louisville.

The 6-foot point guard averaged 18.6 points and 6.7 assists per game in 2012-13, He made perhaps the most memorable shot of the NCAA tournament, a long 3-pointer in the final seconds against Kansas that sent that regional semifinal to overtime.

Michigan made the Final Four for the first time since 1993, and Burke scored 24 points in the championship game despite early foul trouble.
