Oakland County Boys Basketball Rankings -- Holiday Edition

1. Birmingham Detroit Country Day
There really hasn't been anyone who has proven to be able to be as dangerous offensively, or as strong defensively so far this season as the Yellowjackets,

2. Rochester Adams
The Highlanders won't be the team from Rochester grabbing all of the attention this fall, but Adams might be the most complete team in Rochester.

3. Bloomfield Hills Lahser
The return of Yante Maten from injury will make Lahser one of the most dangerous interior teams along with Andrew Gikas, while Armand Cartwright and Khalil Gracey will continue their dominance on the outside.

4. Southfield
Can't argue with a perfect record heading into the holiday. The Jays just have too many players for most teams to handle with Earl Swift, Quintin Arnold and Darnell Butler as well as others.

5. Rochester
Arben Camaj, Mike Murri and Manny Mendoza are three of the best unknown players around, but should be well know names by the end of the season.

6.Lake Orion
The Dragons are once again flying under the radar for some reason, but look poised for another deep playoff run this winter thanks to Chaz Miller, John McCarty and Co.

7. Clarkston
With Jordan Dasuqi back from injury, and Nick Owens proving to be another stellar sharpshooter, the Clarkston back-court is once again looking like it will be nearly impossible to stop.

8.  North Farmington
Might have the most underrated inside-outside duo around with guard Caleb Hogans and forward Jeron "Buddha" Rogers. Both have scored over 30 points already this year.

9. Southfield Christian
Everyone knows about star guards Bakari Evelyn and Lindsey Hunter IV, but forwards Marlo Brown and Damarco White look like they are in store for big seasons as well.

10. Walled Lake Western
Still early on, but has the looks of a team that was overlooked heading into the season after a tough year last season. Pretty similar to the Oak Park football team, which made a run to the Elite Eight this fall.
