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.

Bloomfield Hills Hoop Bulletin

All-State center Yante Maten is gone, but the new Bloomfield Hills Blackhawks boys and girls hoops programs still have some high-quality talent left on the hardwood for the inaugural year of Black and Purple balling
In other words, the merger has been a smashing success!!!
Let's take a look:
Boys Blackhawks Ballers (aka TEAM GRAVES)
Armand Cartwright (Lahser) – "The Dark Knight" aka this four-year starter has a Superhero-like game….'NUFF SAID!!
Khalil Gracey (Lahser) – Smooth as silk on the wing, huge upside on the bball floor and on the gridiron as a big-play wide receiver
Xavier Reynolds (Lahser) – Rock-solid sparkplug in the backcourt
Jake Hecker (Lahser) – Unheralded Sensational Sophomore at the power forward spot that will turn heads in 2014
Dylan Dietch (Andover) – Definition of steady and smart as a combo guard
Eric Weiss (Andover) – Tough-nosed guard and prototypical "glue guy"
Josh Bender (Andover) – Fast-improving forward that has the chance to be a real difference-maker this winter
Charleston Ellis (Lahser) – Possible "breakout stud" of a point guard off the bench for the 2014 campaign……only a sophomore, he's the future in the BHawks backcourt
Alex Schwartz (Andover) – Gritty role player that does all the little things
Girls Blackhawks Ballers (aka TEAM RUBIN)
Shannon Wilson (Andover) – Electrifying floor general that will end her career as one, if not the best girls hoopster the city of Bloomfield Hills' prep scene has ever witnessed. Just a flawless overall floor game, with a thru-the-roof cage IQ and playmaker written all over her in every way
Diana Holsey (Andover) – Gutsy, fundamentally-sound guard
Emma Hill (Andover) – Gutsy, fundamentally-sound guard
Gina Perry (Andover) – One of the top defensive-stoppers in the area
Katie Stewart (Lahser) – Crafty backcourt baller that will spell and compliment Wilson beautifully
Shayilynn Brown (Lahser) – Spunky and athletic in the post
Alex Jackson (Lahser) – Versatile wing that can finish on the break and get it done in the half-court set
Ten-niaha King–Karyn Vance (Andover) – Along with Brown, this pair of priceless paint-stalkers could wind up forming a bruising and productive assault on the block
