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.

Strength In Numbers

There are some pretty fine BIG 3's aka THREE-HEADED MONSTERS on the local high school hardwood this year.
Here's a look at some of the best around;
Bloomfield Hills Lahser's sizzling junior trio of Yante "The Big Impact" Maten, Khalil "Mr. Smooth" Gracey and Armand "The Dark Knight" Cartwright…..The nicknames say it all……and the back-to-back league titles say a little something, too!!!
Birmingham DCD's terrific 3-guard backcourt of senior Austin Price (Lehigh) and juniors Edmond Sumner and Mory Diane are all versatile, heady and stonecold playmakers for THE KEENER KAGE KREW!!
North Farmington's super soph Jeron (Buddha) Rogers and the standout duo of seniors, Caleb Hogans (Spring Arbor), an all-league floor general and Sterling Sharp (EMU for baseball), an athletic, sweet-shooting forward, just do so much for TEAM NOGO on both ends of the floor!!
Orchard Lake St. Mary's THRICE AS NICE combo of senior guards Sam "McCLUTCH" McClendon (floor general) and Matt Linehan (sniper extraordinaire) and rapidly-rising sophomore wing Ted "TEDDY BALLGAME" McCree have been coming on like gangbusters the whole second half of the season…THAT'S A FACT!!!!
Southfield Christian has the best small-school backcourt in the state in the THRILLER THREESOME of point guard Bakari (The BOY WONDER) Evelyn and off-guards Lindsey Hunter IV aka LV4 and Eugene (Marlow) Brown
Waterford Our Lady of the Lakes exquisite LADY HOOPSTRESS TRIFECTA of Lexie Robak, Ava Doetsch and Jessica Parry is on their way to a possible FOUR-PEAT? ……..'nuff said!!!
Speaking of scintillating OC LADY BALLERS, some tremendously potent trios are currently residing at freshly-minted district champs Farmington Hills Harrison, Southfield-Lathrup and Clarkston.
The Clarkston three-headed BALLER BEAST better known as Delany Kenny (Northwood) and the Davenport sisters (senior point guard Erin and sensational sophomore center Erika) is the top trio on the country's girls hoops scene….YEAH, I SAID IT!!!
Harrison senior captain Marissa Cotton joins forces with the FAB FROSH tandem of Amber Stephens and Kristin Nelson to head the 2013 Hawks, the school's most successful basketball squad (boys or girls) ever.
Lathrup's lean and mean threesome of senior stars, Sydni Davis (Stetson), Kristina Green (Wayne State) and Sabria Cotton (unsigned) have been causing headaches for opposing teams all season long
