HOLDING OUT FOR A HERO: Burney shouts out some of the Mitten’s unsung backcourt heroes this winter
Burney wants to shout out some unsung heroes out of the backcourt this season on the boys hardwood. So, here goes:
• Nigel Colvin (River Rouge Sr.) — Maybe the most pleasant surprise of a season of anybody in Metro Detroit, absolutely killing it shooting the rock right now.
• Ron Jeffery (New Haven Sr.) — Maybe the most undervalued “Scottie Pippen type” in the whole state playing beside Mr. Basketball shoe-in Romeo Weems, versatile, consistent, clutch.
• Vinson Sigmon (Canton Sr.) — Game changer … ’Nuff said!!
• Julian Lewis & Devin Womack (AA Huron Soph.) — Can you say BEAST MODE in the making?
• Keyon Menifield (Flint Beecher Soph.) — Slippery and smooth anchoring the Bucs backcourt along with terrorizing junior Jalen Terry.
• Jordan Montgomery (U-D Jesuit Sr.) — The quintessential “glue guy,” connects a lot of dots on the court for the Cubbies.
