Burney’s 2021 All-Macomb County Boys Basketball Team

Linden Holder (Warren De La Salle Sr. G) — Best point guard in the county, the straw that stirred the drink for the final four-bound Pilots.

Caleb Reese (Warren De La Salle Jr. G) — A silent assassin of a combo guard, before you know it, he has you on the ropes and crying for mercy with his backcourt wizardry. 

Triston Nichols (Warren De La Salle Soph. F) — The consummate competitor and a grinder with finesse, a true warrior baseline to baseline.

Nino Smith (Warren De La Salle Soph. G) — Coldblooded underclassmen who hit one of the most memorable game-winners in recent state tournament history with his buzzer-beating 3 to send DLS to a regional title.

Josh Hines (Macomb Dakota Sr. G) — The most electric player in the MAC this season, the MVP of the county.

Nick Olmeda (St. Clair Shores Lake Shore Sr. G) — “Nick the Quick” wrapped up his career in Shorianland as one of the greatest scorers the program ever had in its midst.

Mak Manciel (Sterling Heights Stevenson Sr. G/F) — Made a name for himself across the state as a vicious presence on the wing and became the epitome of a go-to guy for all four quarters. 

Andre Turner (Sterling Heights Stevenson Sr. G) — Athleticism, instinct and a high hardwood IQ made this floor general a must-see once again for the Stevenson cage club. 

Devin Lilly (Chippewa Valley Jr. G) — Was a true revelation this season out of the backcourt, did it all, did it with flair and made it look easy. 

Jason Hunter (Roseville Jr. G) — One of the most consistent and underappreciated guards in Metro Detroit.

Caron Williams (Macomb L’anse Creuse Soph. G)
