Burney’s All-Michigan Boys Cage Crew 2016

Cassius Winston (Detroit U-D Jesuit Sr. PG) – Mr. Basketball, future MSU floor general, 4-time Catholic League champion, 3-time final-four participant….’Nuff Said!!!

Foster Loyer (Clarkston Soph. PG) – Smartest basketball player in the state, the consummate coach on the court, the definition of efficient

Corey Allen (Ypsilanti Sr. G) – More versatile than ever, can hurt opponents so many different ways, silky stroke, strong court vision, hard-nosed leader, flawless finishing ability, crafty, high hoops IQ, inked with U-D Mercy

Kamari Newman (Detroit East English Village Sr. G/F) – Just as cool as the other side of the pillow on the wing, makes it look so so so easy, signed with George Mason

Spencer Littleson (Rochester Hills Adams Sr. G/F) – Sleeper Mr. Basketball candidate (finished No. 3 in the voting), equally dynamic and diverse, probably the top pure shooter in the state, destroyer of countless double teams, destined for the A-10 at Duquesne

Brandon Johns (East Lansing Soph F) – Oodles and oodles of scintillating talent, getting better every day….Be Afraid, Be VERY AFRAID

Austin Davis (Onsted Sr. C) – Best big guy in the state, Maize-&-Blue-bound, fundamentally-sound post presence with a superior work ethic and dynamite natural foot work and instincts around the rim

Jermaine Jackson, Jr. (Macomb Dakota Jr. G) – Lightning in a bottle out of the backcourt

Billy Thomas (North Farmington Sr. G) – Took his game up about three notches, expanded his skill set, committed to guarding at an MJ-like level, complete assassin when shooting from beyond the arc, ice in his veins, proved a lot of doubters wrong this season after missing most of 2015 via his multiple transfers, maybe the MVP of the whole OAA Red

Aquavious Burks (Flint Beecher Sr. G/F) – Most underrated player in the state, does EVERYTHING WELL, total winner, gamer, Draymond Green-esque at the prep level

Xavier Tillman (Grand Rapids Christian Jr. F) – Beast on the blocks Pt. 1

Algevon Eichelberger (Saginaw Sr. F) – Beast on the blocks Pt. 2
