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 Hoops Rankings

OC Top 10
1 DCD (10-0) – Burney loves this year's once again stacked Keener Kage Krew but he has to admit he's surprised that the 'Jackets have not missed a single beat with 6-11 junior center, Amir Williams out of the line-up.
2 Clarkston (7-1) – As expected of any Dan Fife-coach team, the Wolves are growing stronger each game. Senior forward/center Matt Kamieniecki is as consistent as they come – "Kammy" goes hard and brings it every night with no exceptions. Wolves senior point guard Tyler Scarlett is playing at the highest level of his career thus far. 
3 Birmingham Seaholm (8-0) – Inside the mind of Maples point guard Christian Pino: Richaud Pack or Shawn Conway? Shawn Conway or Richaud Pack? Decisions, decisions, decisions……
4 Southfield (7-2) – Carlton Brundidge is a straight WARRIOR. The Bluejays "Captain Amazing" could be the hardest working player in the county (and this kid already has a scholarship in the bag up in the A-squared with the Maize and Blue). Head coach Gary Teasley needs to get a little more from the squad's supporting cast – guys with last names that are not Brundidge or Barnes – if he wants the 'Jays to legitimately contend for a state title. I like Landon Atterberry and Jaylon Floyd to fill this void
5 Novi (7-2) – I'm nicknaming Wildcats junior rising star Samier Ozier, "Sham Wow" in addition to the obvious back-up moniker of "The Big O",  because since the start of the season, Ozier and his game have been residing at the corner of Awesome and Amazing. Don't sleep on Sham Wow's running mates, Jeremy Mims and Justin Hopton.
6 RH Adams (6-1) – These Highlanders are the definition of the word scrappy!
7 Stoney Creek (8-1) – I have a feeling this is going to end up being a very special year for the Cougars!
8 Waterford Mott (7-2) – John Schaeffer is a coldblooded hoops stud! Sophomore Chris Dewberry will make a significant imprint on the Mott bball program before he leaves in 2012.
9 West Bloomfield (6-4) – You can't stop Larry "Lil' Gran Mama" Johnson, you can only hope to contain him!
10 a. Holly (6-3) – Transfer Thomas "The L-Train" Lovachis is a locomotive of a force on the court and his presence in the Bronchos line-up automatically makes them as a dangerous as they've been in recent memory. His 15 points, 5 board, 5 dime performance in a Holly "w" on Monday served notice of his intent to do serious bodily harm to the entire Flint Metro Conference.
10 b. Southfield-Lathrup (5-5) – Get busy my main man, Delvon Borgan. Nice game winner against North Farmington last week. Your primetime playmaking ability makes Burney proud!
10 c. N. Farmington (5-5) – The Raiders have had a good helping of bad luck, but some good luck is on the way with 6-8 junior transfer Urban Bingham (17 points, 10 rebounds in first game in the Brown and Yellow) becoming eligible this week.
Honorable Mention:
Waterford Kettering (6-2)
Walled Lake Central (6-2)
Clawson (8-0)
Roeper (9-0)
Brother Rice (5-4)
Pontiac (3-6)
Madison (6-1)
