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 Top 10 Girls Hoop Squads

OC Pre-Season Top 10 – Girls Basketball
1 Birmingham Detroit Country Day – The Yellowjackets' two decades of dominance will continue with this new batch of ballers who are a perfect mix of season veterans (Maddie Williams, Imari Redfield, and Troy Hambric) and fresh faced phenoms (super sophs Aerial Powers and Amber Deab)
2 North Farmington –  The Raiders are a well-balanced group with tons of big game experience. Senior PF Jenna Bachrouche (Oakland) and senior point guard Lyndsey Booker (Loyola) make up the best "inside-outside" tandem in the county. Sophmore Jasmine Harris is a rising star.
3 Southfield-Lathrup – A Big and physical front court (Amber McCann and Gennesica Lawlor) will combine with a lightning quick backcourt (Michelle Hayes and Kyra Littlejohn) to make last season's sub-par season seem like a distant memory.
4 Birmingham Marian – Rachel Melcher will carry on the tradition of great Marian guards as she finishes out a stellar career this season.
5 Novi – Caroline Johnson, Carolina Johnson, Caroline Johnson!!!!!!!
6 Lakeland – Stephanie Locke, Stephanie Locke, Stephanie Locke!!!!!!
7 Waterford Our Lady of The Lakes – Junior scoring machine Lauren Robak (verbally committed to Oakland) and senior center Alexis Doetch, a walking "double-double", are small-school clones of N. Farmington's "Killer B's", Bachrouche and Booker.
8 Auburn Hills Avondale – New coach plus junior star Jailyn Hamilton equals Yellow Jackets success this year.
9 AH Oakland Christian – The hot-shooting Carlee Cottrell and the offensively-skilled Emily Sweet are a small-school version of DCD's Powers and Dean.
10 (a) Clarkston – Kaliegh Kenny brings the the jelly, bread, and spreading knife to the Wolves' peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
10 (b) Walled Lake Northern – A senior-laden Knights girls hoop squad could end up following in the boys soccer team's footsteps – no pun intended – from the fall and end up making history this winter.
