FIVE FOR FIGHTING: Burney’s Most Underrated Boys Hoopsters in the MHSAA

By: Scott Burnstein, January 16, 2019, 1:05 pm

1 Caleb Bates (St. Clair Shores Lake Shore Sr. F) — A tsunami of swagger type, in other words a total force of nature out of the frontcourt.


2 Josh Warren (Woodhaven Sr. G) — The most explosive player the Downriver League has had in its midst in quite some time.


3 SirQuarius Ball (Bridgeport Sr. F) — Cool as the other side of my pillow, nasty as he wants to be no matter what sport he’s playing, nails tough in every way.


4 John Ukomadu (Roseville Sr. F) — Simply RAW POWER on the wing, attacks the rack like its stole something from his mama. (PICTURED)


5 Jimmy Scholler (GR Forrest Hills Central Jr. G) — The best kept secret in the backcourt on the west side of the state right now.




Mr. Basketball sleeper: Joe Moon (Westland John Glenn Sr. G) — Continues torching nets and taking no prisoners.


Sophomore to watch: Kobe Bufkin (Grand Rapids Christian G) — ELECTRICITY personified.
