Burney’s January power rankings for Michigan’s 2020 Mr. Basketball race
Mr. Basketball January Power Rankings
1 Lorne Bowman (Orchard Lake St. Mary’s G) — Best player on the best team in the state.
2 Carlos “Scooby” Johnson (Benton Harbor F) — Perfect combination of power and finesse.
3 Ryan Rollins (Macomb Dakota G) — Dark horse dandy making a push up the leader board with a phenomenal first month of the season.
4 Isaiah Jackson (Waterford Mott F) — Just a specimen in the frontcourt, freakish finishing ability around the rim or on the fast break.
5 Matt Nicholson (Clarkston C) — Pure domination in the paint, most fundamentally sound big Metro Detroit has seen since Bloomfield Hills’ Yante Maten (Georgia/NBA).
6 Tyson Acuff (Detroit Cass Tech G) — Electricity personified at the point guard position.
7 Jalen Terry (Flint Beecher G) — A Flintstone floor general with a lot of swagger and even more sizzle to his game.
8 Da’Jion “Bubba” Humphrey (Southfield Christian G/F) — Maybe the strongest-willed player in the state, all heart, hustle and flow.
