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.

Boys BBall Rankings - Week of The Rebound

OC Top 10
1 Birmingham Detroit Country Day (10-1) – 'Jackets will rebound from their first loss of the season – experienced Saturday on the road at Kalamazoo Central – in resounding fashion with a beatdown of Taylor Kennedy on Tuesday night – Mark It Down!. Kenny Knight, Lee Bailey, and Carter Elliott deserve credit for doing all the dirty work that doesn't necessarily make it into the stat sheet when teammates Ray McCallum, Amir Williams, and Chris Fowler get most of the headlines for high-flying 'Jackets.
2 Clarkston (8-2) – Sophomore sensation Nick Tatu should get the words "Coldblooded Assassin" tattooed on his shooting hand, cause this kid's stroke from the outside is so so deadly!
3 Southfield (8-3) – Southfield's dynamic duo of a backcourt in Carlton "Captain Amazing" Brundidge and Desmond "Pee Wee" Barnes, are just too good. These two outwork almost everyone they go up against. They GO that HARD.   BELIEVE THE HYPE!!!!
4 Birmingham Seaholm (9-0) – The Maples very own "Big Punisher", wing forward Shawn Conway, is a freak of nature on the basketball court and the football field.
5 North Farmington (6-5) – A defensive-gem of a win over a tough-as-nails Clarkston team on the road says a lot about the Raiders second semester prospects. Transfer Big Urb Bingham is a beast in the paint. He can step out and hit the 15 footer too. The Raiders four buzzer beating losses will only help to harden the team's resolve as the season goes into the stretch run.
6 Pontiac (5-6) – Wow, just when I was about to count the Phoenix down and out, they come through with two huge momentum building wins last week against North Farmington and West Bloomfield. Way to go, men!
7 Waterford Mott (8-2) – Get busy my main man, Emmanuel Simpson!
8 Holly (8-3) – You cannot stop the Bronchos "L-Train", Thomas Lovachis, you can only hope to contain him. Holly has three legitimate "number one" options on offense, in Lovachis, Lance Hopkin, and Justin Fowler.
9 Birmingham Brother Rice (6-5) – Don't let the record deceive you, the Warriors have won six of their last seven and have looked mighty good doing it. Kevonte Martin-Manley has hit the zone for the past two weeks and is shooting the ball unbelievably well. Joey Alessi is a rising star and Drew Holinski and Adam Gorski are the lunch pail guys that make the proverbial Rice wheel go round. Rice has legit chance at taking home the CHSL crown when things are all said and done in March on the floor at Calihan Hall.
9 Walled Lake Central (8-2) – Justin Kucera is so superbad on the hardwood, he could change his name to just Cera and tell everybody he is the brother of "Superbad" star Michael Cera.
10 (a) Novi (8-2) – Wildcat junior forward Samier Ozier has got that Boom Boom Pow that has all his opponents in the KLAA jocking his style!
10 (b) Southfield-Lathrup (4-6) – Roy Marble, Drew Gilchrest and company will get it together before season's end and be dangerous going into tournament play in March.
10 (c) Ferndale (7-2) – Don't sleep on the Eagles and while you're at it, don't snooze on Ferndale's crazy def cage connection on the court that is the backcourt of Jody Hill and Shawn Amiker. Can you say OAA-Blue championship?
