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.

District Dancing

Thoughts from Friday night's boys basketball district final action IN THE OC
If someone would have told you 5 days ago that Southfield would be the only team from the rough-and-tumble OAA Red Division advancing into the regionals people would have thought you were CRAZY!!! Congrats my main homeboys, the BLUEJAY BALLER BRIGADE, all those growing pains you experienced during the regular season are paying off BIG TIME!!!
No question in my mind MH Bishop Foley's Corey Green is the best senior in the county…..YEAH, I SAID IT……….CG went ballistic in the Ventures defeat of Southfield Bradford in a Class C district title tilt, busting off 37 points, 16 rebounds and 8 blocked shots….All Burney can say is WOW!!!
WL Central junior guard T.J. Warren is playing as well as any guard in the area right now!!!!......Warren went for a season-high 22 points in the Vikings OT district final win over Milford…..HUGE reason why TEAM BUTCHER is celebrating its first district crown in six years
SURPRISE, SURPRISE; It wasn't the Lake Orion's stud-stacked frontcourt doing all the damage in the Dragons colossal upset of Rochester in the district finals, it was their under-the-radar backcourt. YEAH, I'm TALKING TO YOU, Justin Waulkonis (12) and Damonte Kruse (13 points)……GREAT JOB!!!
Ferndale senior captain Nate Stepney saved his best game of the season for the district finals; My man STEP dropped a 28-6-6 spot on crosstown foe Ferndale U
Southfield Christian will be playing at Breslin in 2 weeks in the Class D final four…..They could have won some area Class A districts……averaging a robust 90-PLUS over the last two weeks, 80 for the year…….just so much FIREPOWER
I feel bad for Clawson; One of the best seasons in school history and its like 'congratulations, now you're going to be served to the wolves……..Yellowjackets….and have to play SUPERPOWER Birmingham DCD in the district finals…….NOT FAIR (just ask MH Madison why it did everything in its powers to move down to Class C to get away from the KEENER KAGE KREW come March
Waterford Mott FEARSOME FORWARD Davonte Daniel is just so MONEY and I hope he knows it!!! DD went INSANE IN THE MEMBRANE, leading the Corsairs to a MONUMENTAL upset of Troy and dropping a 19pt-16 board spot, as well as a game-clinching SUPER SLAMMER JAMMER on a fastbreak
