08:32 AM ET 01.03 | Though there is on-court evidence to the contrary, Trey Burke does get nervous. In the moments leading up to a game, the Michigan basketball team's freshman sensation tends to act more his age, fighting through jitters and mentally preparing his 19-year-old mind to lead a college basketball team. The whole process merely lasts a few minutes. Because once the lineups are read, the anthem is sung and the handshakes are over -- he has a job to do, and no more time to be a kid. ... Where does this attitude come from? How does a teenager who was wandering the halls of a high school 12 months ago continue to carry himself this way? Easy. "He's fearless," Michigan senior guard Stu Douglass says. "Nothing surprises us any more."
