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.
