Blogs > Burney's Bites

Burney's Bites 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 Bytes - Blog Entry # 13

Oakland County Girls Basketball Top 10 - for last week of January '09

1. Birmingham Detroit Country Day 13-0 - may not lose a game all year

2. Birmingham Marian 12-1 - took down Mercy last week, which proved to me that they are for real

3. Lake Orion 12-1 - is there a better "one-two" combo in the state than Watterworth and Zott?

4. Rochester Hills Adams 12-1 - the Lady Highlanders are doubling their pleasure and their fun this season courtesy of the Newsom twins

5. Pontiac Northern 9-3 - Gabby Machado has opponents doing their best Roberto Duron impression and saying, "No Mas!!" 

6. Birmingham Roeper 13-0 - free sailing for the Roughriders until districts when they'll face off against Catholic Laeague juggernaut Marine City Cardinal Mooney, the same team who bumped them off in the quarters last season.  Luckily for Roeper, the game will be in the friendly confines of its own gym.

7. Waterford Our Lady of The Lakes 12-1 - if the Lakers avoid playing Cardinal Mooney, whom they've lost 5 straight to, they'll be in for a long run come March

8. Bloomfield Hills Andover 11-2 - point guard Lena Thomas is one of the best juniors in the area.

9. Troy 9-3 - the Colts are starting to burn up thanks to Colleen Burns

10.  South Lyon 11-0 - need some signature wins to show they mean business.  playing in a weak KLAA doesn't help their cause
