Blogs > Burney's Bytes

Burney's Bytes will focus primarily on the local preps sports scene, but will also touch on some college and pro athletics, mostly in regards to athletes who hail and have played high school sports in Oakland County. My goal for the blog is to be conversational and anecdotal, a more relaxed and free formal take on high school athletics than you see in regular game day coverage.

Burney's Bytes - Blog Entry # 12

As we head into the final month of the regular, lets take another look at how the county's best boys hoops squads stack up against each other.

Oakland County Boys Basketball Rankings - for final week of January '09:

1. Birmingham Detroit Country Day 12-0 - playing at a complete other level than the rest of the competition

2. Clarkston 8-0 - is anyone in the state better than Wolves' senior shooting guard Brandon Pokely beyond the arc?

3. Novi Detroit Catholic Central 10-1 - the most balanced team in the area. the shamrocks go ten deep and every player can hurt you.

4. Lakeland  9-1 - i've said before and i'll say it again, senior point guard Mike Fugate (Saginaw Valley State) is a D1 talent.  MAC schools, you did not do your due dilligence.

5. Orchard Lake St. Mary's 7-3 - the Eaglets are once again flying high this year.

6. Holly 8-1 - a minor oversight by Burney in the previous set of rankings.  Jordan Fowler and Justin Hopkin, my bad and please accept my apologies

7. West Bloomfield 7-3 - Lakers' wing Chris Hurst (25 points in his last game) is starting to play like former West Bloomfield stud, Roderick Hurst.

8. Pontiac Northern 7-3 - shooting guard De Andre Davis can go toe-to-toe in a scoring battle with anyone in the are a.

9. Troy 9-1 - Bobby Wunderlich is a wonder to watch

10. Novi 9-1 - the Wildcats killer bees, Chris Bellamy and Brandon Bryant, are wrecking havoc in the KLAA.
