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.

What I Like About You

Things Burney liked to see in the first few days of the new prep boys basketball season:
The performance of North Farmington JV call-ups Dorrell Foster (20 pts 13 reb), Caleb Hogans (fast improving tempo-setter at the point) and Sterling Sharp (roof-raising slam dunk in first quarter) in the Raiders season-opening defeat of a tenacious River Rouge squad….the future is bright for TEAM NOGO!!
West Bloomfield's very own "Big Easy" aka Spencer Parker GETTING SUPER BUSY, dropping a 22 point, 13 board, 5 dime outing in the Lakers' opening night win over Canton….Burney thinks there is a very good chance that Parker becomes the WB's first D1 player since David Merritt (Michigan)
DCD's long-distance assault, connecting on 14 trifectas in its 83-54 beatdown of S-Lathrup….WOW!! Bombs away, BOYZ!!
How hard head coach Tom Staton's Ferndale team played while breaking in a brand new and inexperienced lineup against Waterford Mott in its opener. The Eagles, sparked by the surprisingly dynamic tandem of seniors Anthony Rice (19 pts, 6 asst, 11 steals) and Jordan Guinn (22 pts 5 Reb), rallied back from a 9-point deficit in the final three minutes of regulation to win 76-70 in OT
Birmingham Seaholm's Shawn Conway showing a great deal of resilience, bouncing back from the news that he won't be academically eligible to play football at UofM next fall by punishing crosstown-foe Groves. The Maples "Big Pun" torched the Falcons for 27 points, 18 rebounds and four blocks in Seaholm's 57-47 road win
BH Lahser getting the season started with a win for the Knights new coaching staff…Watch out for B.J. Lavallis this season – he's going be running the point this year and acting as the team's overall accelerator on offense and defense. B.J. went for seven points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds in the Knights 54-31 defeat of MC Cardinal Mooney, a squad that made a run all the way into the Class D state finals last year.
Waterford Mott's Chris "RIP CITY" Dewberry doing his best RIP Hamilton impression, lighting up Ferndale for 27 points, in a narrow loss for the Corsairs on opening night (Dewberry's teammate Davonte Daniel looked pretty NBA-like too, notching a double-double of 18 points and 12 rebounds) 

Southfield's Carlton Brundidge going all CARLTON BRUNDIDGE in the 'Jays season-opening thwarting of Mt. Clemens, busting off 41 points in the 'w'. CAPTAIN AMAZING to the rescue once again!!!
