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 A Wing & A Prayer

The girls basketball landscape in Oakland County is filled with lethal weapons on the wing.
Let's grab a gander at the cream of the crop:
1 Taylor Jones (FH Mercy) – Pure scorer, gym rat, all heart and hustle, tough as nails, genuine workhorse, a warrior's spirit
2 Destiny Pitts (Birmingham DCD)Point blank a Diaper Dandy Darling, tenth-grade terror with high-DI prospect imprinted on her person like a tattoo, killer instinct on the court, on the verge of blossoming into a superstar
3 Jessica Murphy (Oxford) A perfect combination of smooth, steady, gritty, gutty & clutch, as quick a release on her 'J' as any I've seen in a while
4 (tie) Brittany Gray (Birmingham Marian) – Fundamentally-sound, a winner in every way, just darn good in a lot of different areas of the game, has improved significantly every year
4 (tie) Kara Holinski (Birmingham Marian) – Maybe the most underrated player in all of Metro Detroit, a quiet assassin, the definition of a leader, the proverbial straw that stirs the drink for the best team in the state
5 Lauren Tewes (Waterford Kettering) – Lady Grind-A-Lot Special, can hurt defenses from deep or taking it to the rack, primetime player plain & simple
