A quarter through the 2017 boys hoop season, here’s how the Mr. Basketball race appears to be stacking up according to your boy Burney:
 
1 Greg Elliott (Detroit East English Village) – WOW!!! Yeah, THAT just happened. On a tear, playing as well as anyone in the state and making a serious case for the hardware
 
2 (tie) Xavier Tillman (Grand Rapids Christian) – Showing off his passing skills from the high post early on this season
 
2 (tie) Isaiah Livers (Kalamazoo Central) – LIV’in Large on the Westside….’NUFF SAID!!
 
3 Amauri Hardy (North Farmington) – HARD to believe there’s a quicker first step in the state right now
 
4 Jamal Cain (Detroit Cornerstone) – Probably the highest upside in the Mitten, best chance at going to THE SHOW!!!
 
5 (tie) Dylan Alderson (Clarkston) – No longer a sleeper candidate, this kid is firmly planted in the race
 
5 (tie) Matt Beachler (Lowell) – No longer a sleeper candidate, this kid is firmly planted in the race
