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.

Burney's Boys Hoops Preview - Part 2

OC Top 25 Players
1 Edmond Sumner (Birmingham DCD) – Pure electricity whenever this floor general has the ball in his hands
2 Yante Maten (Bloomfield Hills) – Best big fella in the OC, might be most fundamentally-sound post player in the state
3 Jeron "Buddha" Rogers (North Farmington) – Be afraid, be very afraid of what's in store from this cage phenom in 2014…can do it all and really, really well!!
4 Ja'Christian Biles (Oak Park) – Explosive is the most accurate way to describe this kid's diverse skill-set
5 Bakari Evelyn (Southfield Christian) – Would be just as a big a star playing in Class A….the definition of a playmaker and PRIMETIME PERFORMER
6 Akhemji Williams (RH Adams) – To use a phrase from yesteryear, a whirling dervish of a point guard…think a new school version of Tiny Archibald….he's a triple D doozy; dynamic, devastating and downright DEADLY!!
7 Isaiah Green (Southfield) – Like his last name, the color of money in the paint, very tough-to-stop on the block with a satiny sweet touch from 15-feet in.
8 Teddy McCree (OL St. Mary's) – This kid blew up in the second half of last season (blowing the door off the comp from the wing) and the trend continues this winter
9 Nick Owens (Clarkston) – Quickest release I've ever seen from 3-pointland and one of the most dangerous shooters a marksmen-rich Wolfpack program has ever produced
10 Lindsey Hunter IV (Southfield Christian) – Will be the OC most improved player and he was already a D1-talent so that's pretty scary
11 Armand Cartwright-Khalil Gracey (Bloomfield Hills) – The Dark Knight and Dr. Smooth….the nicknames tell you all you need to know about this piping-hot pair of hoop gems
12 (tie) Trishton Jackson (West Bloomfield) – Top super soph in the OC in the backcourt
12 (tie) Kalvon Fuller (Oak Park) – Top super soph in the OC in the frontcourt
