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.

Locked In & Ready To Roar

The Wayne State womans basketball team has become a popular transfer destination for former local prep stars.
The most recent former OC Lady Hoopstress to find her way to the 'D' and WSU is Stephanie Lock, following in the footsteps of Pontiac Northern's Gabby Machado and Birmingham Detroit Country Day's Imari Redfield.
Graduating from Lakeland last spring, Lock, a nails-tough forward, spent the 2011-2012 season in Illinois at Urbana College. As a prepster, Lock was a three-time all-league pick who averaged a double-double over her last two seasons on the high school hardwood, posting 15 points and 10 rebounds a night. Back in 2009 when she was a sophomore, she started on Lakeland's Kensington Lakes Activities Association championship squad. She's a genuine workhorse on the floor and the type of player that plays much bigger than her 6-foot size.
No doubt, locking up LOCK is a great pick-up for Wayne State.
Machado and Redfield (a multi-year state champion at DCD during her prep career) both got to WSU last year, with Machado transferring in from Iowa and Redfield from Hope College.
Wayne State closed out last season 12-14.
