The list continues

Here are my two winter teams. I’ll have the spring teams up soon. The boys basketball one took me a little longer than the others because no team just stood out head and shoulders above the others. But I’m satisfied with my pick.

Winter sports
Boys basketball — 2007 Birmingham Detroit Country Day. The Yellowjackets played as a true team to win the Class B state championship in ’07. Country Day was talented, but didn’t have any real superstars. The loss of star Alex Legion likely brought the team together and made them a fun team to watch.

Others I considered (in no order): ’06 Orchard Lake St. Mary’s, ’07 Pontiac Northern; ’08 Clarkston; ’05 Clarkston; ’05 Pontiac Northern; '07 St. Mary's

Girls basketball — 2005 Southfield-Lathrup. The ’05 Chargers went 27-1 on their way to winning the Class A state championship. Lathrup featured three Division 1 players in Timika Williams, Jerica Hughes and Brittane Russell, which are all having productive college careers. The Chargers dominated the OAA I and played well at both ends of the court.

Others I considered: ’08 Detroit Country Day; ’08 Rochester; ’06 Auburn Hills Avondale; ’08 North Farmington; ’05 Auburn Hills Avondale; ’05 Clarkston; ’06 Detroit Country Day
