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.

Great, Scot, I Think It's A Match

Alma's backcourt just got better. You can thank Holly's senior boys basketball studs Josh Simms and Scott Maki personally for that. Both committed to play at the next level for the Alma College Scots this past week.
These two compliment each other beautifully on the hardwood: Simms is a jumping-jack of a combo guard that is a terror streaking down the lane or finishing on the fast break. Maki is a sweet-shooting marksman at the two-guard spot with deep, Splash Brothers-type range, an itchy trigger finger and ice running through his veins in crunch time.
Last year, the pair helped spur a benchmark campaign for the Bronchos program – as in 22-3, district title, Sweet 16 appearance, repeat league crown, a team-best 19-game winning streak –, while Simms pumped in 12 points per game, threw down a number of rim-shaking slam dunks and was named first-team All-Flint Metro and Maki connected on 40 percent of his triple attempts.
Alma finished the 2015 season 12-14. The Scot's squad in '15 carried two OC hoop hounds in Ethan Woelke (OLSM) and Quinton Cook (Ortonville Brandon). Woelke is a junior, Cook a sophomore.
