Burney’s Girls Basketball Dream Team 2019
G Mo Joiner (Saginaw Heritage Sr.) — 24-karat magic at the point, natural playmaker who goes down as an all-time MHSAA great out of the backcourt.
G Alyza Winston (Muskegon Sr.) — High-wattage floor general with a lot of flash and dash to her game.
G Jeanae Terry (Wayne Memorial Sr.) — Mega “Wow Factor” whenever she steps foot on the court, can you say Razzle-Dazzle Express?
G Mya Petticord (Ypsilanti Arbor Prep Fr.) — The future at the point guard position in the MHSAA, bomb squad material… the definition of EXPLOSIVE.
G Gabrielle Elliott (Detroit Edison Jr.) — Pure gunner, locked-and-loaded at all times.
F Rickea Jackson (Detroit Edison Sr.) — Thoroughbred of a talent with few, if any, equals in state history.
F Hannah Spitzley (Pewamo-Westphalia Jr.) — Shreds the comp with maximum efficiency, refined skill, laser focus and a razor-sharp hoop IQ.
F Julia Ayrault (Grosse Pointe North Sr.) — Punishing presence on the wing, game-changer in every way.
F Alexis Johnson (Southfield A&T Sr.) — Typhoon of terror slashing into the lane, crashing the boards and causing damage in the open floor
F Bree Salenbien (Adrian Lenawee Christian Soph.) — Flawless out of the frontcourt, total force of nature type, phenomenal feel for the game.
F Shine Strickland-Gills (Saginaw Heritage Sr.) — Gritty workhorse in the post, fiery finisher on the break.
C Whitney Sollom (Hartland Jr.) — Paint prowler with all the right moves in the middle, packs quite the punch with a feisty demeanor and a nice touch.
