Better PG?

When I look at the PG landscape in College Basketball, I see two guys that stand out above the rest: Michael Carter-Williams and Trey Burke. Some can make a case for other players, but these guys are the top 2.. I would like to hear your case as to why one is better than the other. I'll show you some stats, if you dont already know them for yourself.

Trey Burke - 6' 190 pound Sophomore running the Number 2 ranked, 13-0, team in the nation, Michigan.
Statline
Games Played - 13
PPG - 17.8
RPG - 3.1
APG - 7.4
TO - 1.9
SPG - 1.2
BPG - 0.3
FG% - .536
3PT% - .383
MPG - 33.2

Michael Carter-Williams - 6'6 185 pound Sophomore running the Number 7 ranked, 12-1, team in the nation, Syracuse.
Stateline
Games Played - 12
PPG - 11.8
RPG - 4.6
APG - 9.9
TO - 3.8
SPG - 3.3
BPG - 0.8
FG% - .372
3PT% - .372
MPG - 31.7

There it is, all in front of ya.. Who is the best?

Trey seems to have a better

Trey seems to have a better understanding at the college level. Pro potential I use a pick to take Williams

If I were to have to make a decision...

Give me Trey Burke. He doesn't have MCW's size but he's a much better shooter and takes care of the ball better than MCW. But I'd like to wait until Syracuse has played some of their in-conference foes because MCW hasn't really faced much quality competition thus far.

I can't decide untill

MCW plays at least three teams in the top 100.

You guys do realize it's more

You guys do realize it's more about potential rather than who has the better numbers in college right? Look at how Nolan smith and Scottie Reynolds fell flat on their face in the league after very good college careers. Not a big fan of this years point guard class but next year has me gushing.

You realize that both

You realize that both Reynolds and Smith were small SGs. Both of these players are pure points..

Also, this has nothing to do with their potiental.. This has nothing to do with them as NBA players.. I just asked who is better...

Yes but Burke backs up his

Yes but Burke backs up his numbers by looking like a future NBA starting point guard on the court unlike the players you mentioned.

Offensively, Burke is the

Offensively, Burke is the most complete PG I've seen at the college level since Kyrie (I know, it's only been a couple of yrs). From a skills, intangibles and mental standpoint, he pretty much has it all.
He's not just proficient at running a college system or sets either. He's running pro sets too and making pro plays.

I know MKC has a big fan

I know MKC has a big fan base, but I think he is a going to be a complete bust. I'm sorry I'll get into more later. It's a NYE thing right now.

One of these is Chris Paul

One of these is Chris Paul his Soph yr. The other is the current Trey Burke. I'll let you guess which one is which. Of course it's not a great comparison considering that they're numbers over the course of a college season vs numbers compiled over the course of 13 games, but it should give you an idea of just how epic of a season Burke is having so far.

6'0, 6'4 wingspan.
PPG/40- 18.3
AST/40- 7.9
STL/40- 2.8
TO/40- 3.3
A/T- 2.4
TS- 60%
PPP (points per possession)- 1.13
WS/40- 10.3
EFF Rtng/40- 23.5
PER- 24.7

6'0, 6'5 wingspan.
PPG/40- 21.1
AST/40- 8.8
STL/40- 1.4

TS- 63%
PPP (points per possession)- 1.27
WS/40- 11.1

@Malik

Phil Pressey for sure. I've seen the kid live and faster than both those kids and can absolutely take over a basketball with only his passing, pushing the ball in transition and creating havoc he gets in the paint (which is seemingly whenever he wants). His numbers and shooting % aren't great but i'm telling you, I'd take him on my squad over anyone in college ball
