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.

Pee Wee's Playhouse

Watch out OC, Pee Wee is coming to town. Desmond "Pee Wee" Barnes that is, one of the best junior guards in the state. Scorching the nets for 18 ppg as a sophomore at Detroit Consortium Prep, Barnes has just transferred to Southfield and will team with Carlton Brundidge, THE best and most highly-recruited guard in the same 2011 class, to make a devastating backcourt combination for the Blue Jays this winter. When its all said and done, Brundidge and Barnes could end up the best backcourt in the state this year.
Both players are physical slashing types that "drive" opposing coaches and defenders nuts. Expect a good 45 points a night, at least, from head coach Gary Teasley's newly-anointed "Killer Bees". Brundidge is such a bucket-hound, he can score 25 points in his sleep. He will get 50 before he graduates in two years, mark my words! Pee Wee is the perfect compliment to Brundidge too. His game is as smooth as silk and he attacks the basket with same relentlessness that's his new teammates does. There won't be any adjustment curve either. The chemistry is already there, the pair having played this whole summer on the same AAU team and being close friends.
Wow, what a force they're going to be. Mark my word, the OC WILL become Pee Wee's playhouse and the Blue Jays, led by the whirling-dervish duo of Brundidge and Barnes will be as dangerous as ever in 2010 and 2011.
