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.

On The Look Out

Alright, everyone knows the Best of the Best in the backcourt on the OC boys hardwood. Here are a few more names to keep an eye out for this winter
Hunter Schattler & Ivan Barraza (Rochester) – Backcourt of the future for TEAM PLEASANTVILLE is backcourt of the present, this Fab Frosh-Sensational Soph combo will be formidable in the years to come
Devin Mills & Howard McInnis (Oak Park) – Pair of transfers that will anchor a Knights backcourt to counter their club's frontcourt, the best in the county without question in Kalvon Fuller and Rodney Scales. Mills is a coldblooded combo-guard that was at Ferndale last year, but didn't play basketball. McInnis played at Southfield last season and is a jack-of-all-trades type and rock-steady at the 2-guard spot
Martin Elmalik & Joey Turnbull (Lake Orion) – Elmalik (formerly on JV at RH Adams) has some MAJOR LEAGUE swagger and returns to Oakland County after a one-year absence at Melvindale ABT. He can take over a game. Turnbull is nails-tough and will burn opposing defenses from deep or using a tight mid-range skill-set to get int
C.J. Wilson & Jason Boswell (OL St. Mary's) – By far the most underrated backcourt in the Catholic League…Take it 2 tha bank!! Wilson is one of the premier super sophs in Metro Detroit, he's electric. Boswell is a game-changer who plays with a chip on his shoulder and ALWAYS outworks the comp
L. Arnold, J.P. Sinacola, S. Reader, J. Allen, S. Holloman & B. Reiter (Stoney Creek) – Wow, there's a ton of these guys & they're all SIR-GRIND-A-LOT SPECIALS that compliment each other brilliantly (see Friday's night upset of RH Adams)
Austin Roth & Austin Paritee (Birmingham Seaholm) – MAD MAPLE GUNNER ALERT: Roth has the capability of dropping a 30-ball any night. An aggressive defender, Paritee is a natural finisher on offense and bulldog taking the rock to the tin whether in the half-court set or on the fast break
Jordan Wiley, Joey Ziniti & Brandon Barrows (RH Adams) – Almost too steady for words, just pencil this trifecta into the stat sheet for double-figures every game: Wiley is the epitome of a slick, savvy floor general. Joey ZA ZA is smart, gritty and consistent on both ends of the court and Barrows is an expert sniper from beyond the arc
