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 # 7

Oakland County Girls Basketball Top Ten

1. Birmingham Detroit Country Day - With so many division I talent, could end up being the greatest girls hoops squad to ever play in Oakland County - and thats saying a lot considering the bevy of state title teams at DCD head coach Frank Orlando has overseen.

2. Birmingham Marian - I don't think there could be a top ten without the girls from Marian, especially on the 20th anniversary of its great 1988 team.

3. Lake Orion - Brittany Waterworth may be the county's best player.

4. Walled Lake Central - it seems like Brooke Gustafson has been playing for the Vikings forever and the Central faithful are counting their lucky stars for Gustafson's long tenure.

5. Farmington Mercy - Mercy, mercy me for any team going up against this loaded firing squad from Farmington.

6. Pontiac Northern - Gabrielle Mauchado is the real deal holyfield, a scoring machine with few equals

7. Rochester Adams - The Newsom twins are making their last season on the high school hardwood count, getting the Highlanders off to their best start in over a decade.

8. Birmingham Roeper - Small school powerhouse who can play with any big school in the area....Junior forward Ashli Pearson can pump points in from anywhere on the floor

9. Bloomfield Hi lls Andover - The killer-quick backcourt of Thomas, Fields, and Chocral do a lot of damage.

10. Waterford Our Lady of the Lakes - Another small school who is playing at an elite level...Super soph Lauren Robak is a rising star.
