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 Boys Basketball Rankings - Holiday Hoedown

OC TOP 25 – Boys Hoops
1 Birmingham Detroit DCD – Locked and loaded for another championship run
2 Southfield – Senior big fella David Dawson is poised for a breakout year for the 'Jays (he scored 18 points and pulled down 12 boards in the team's 78-70 win at Romulus last week)
3 (tie) Novi Detroit CC – KYLE COOPER=AWESOME w/ a CAPITAL A
3 (tie) Novi - Chris Millon is worth a MILLION BUCKS for Wildcats!!! Just pencil CM in for 10 boards and a couple rim-rattling slams per game

4 Pontiac – Anthony "The Ant" Adams, one of the toughest point guards in the state….ENOUGH SAID!
5 Clarkston – I can HARDLY wait to see more of Wolves senior center MARCUS HARDY….Hardy and Max Collins will make up a rock solid tandem in the post for Coach Fife and the C-Town NATION this season
6 AH Avondale – Tony Harris and Ray Tillman are SUPERBAD in the backcourt for the Yellow Jackets, but it will be role players like DuJuan Radcliff, Darius Hall, Ryan Brancheau and A.J. Susick will be the reason the Purple and Gold rebound from a less than satisfying campaign last year
7 North Farmington – The Raiders are young and raw this season, but have the potential to be very, very good. It will be scary to see how good this team will be by the end of its schedule. Senior center Urbane Bingham is arguably the county's best big man outside of his former teammate Amir Williams over at Country Day
8 Ferndale – You can't stop the Eagles Jordan Guinn, you can only hope to contain him!!!
9 Troy (tie) – If I had a prep fantasy hoops team, I would select the Colts John Stibbich as my featured 3-point specialist. This kid can fill'em up from downtown like few others in the county
9 (tie) West Bloomfield – Spencer Parker is just SO MONEY, his middle name could be "CASH FLOW"
10 (tie) Birmingham Brother Rice – Warriors star player Joey Alessi gets an 'A' for being AUTOMATIC!
10 (tie) Pontiac Notre Dame Prep – Kellen McCormick, Danny Dulapa and Joey De Martis are a formidable trifecta for the Fighting Irish and they will make certain NDP is competing for a shot at winning a CHSL title down at Calihan Hall in March
