Saturday night, for the fifth time in six games, Trey Burke failed to break into double-digit scoring. His coach is chalking it up to the "rookie wall." "Trey being a young guy, he just has to figure it out," coach Ty Corbin said. "His body is probably hurting in places he didn’t think he had before." In December, Burke averaged nearly 15 points, six assist and three rebounds a night. Over his last six games, he is averaging 8 points, five assists and two rebounds. "You go through it, you learn," Corbin said. "Your body, you see things, you feel things. … It takes a couple years to fight through it and learn what you need to do to get yourself ready [for an 82-game season]."
