Four Madras basketball players and boys' coach Evan Brown earned Intermountain Conference honors.
   Derrick Metcalf is a first-team selection with Jansen Harrington on the second team and Orrin Wallace an honorable mention pick. In the girls' balloting, Briana Stacona is a second-team selection.
   Brown is the co-coach of the year, along with Craig Reid of Mountain View. IMC rules dictate that a the coach of the league champions is automatically coach of the year.
   The IMC coaches vote for a coach of the year as well, selecting Brown after Madras finished third in the IMC (9-5 and 16-9 overall). The White Buffalos were the only team to beat Mountain View on its home court this season.
   Metcalf was among the IMC's leading scorers all season, finishing fifth. He finished with 411 points and a 16.4 average, both among Madras' bests during Brown's 16 seasons. Many of those tallies were on 3-point baskets with Metcalf breaking the Buff's season record with 94.
   Metcalf also owns the trey career record at 182. He has 141 career steals, ranking him fifth.
   Harrington averaged 14.7 points, placing him seventh among IMC scorers. The senior hit 67 treys this season, fourth best in Brown's tenure. Harrington is also third on the career trey list with 120.
   Wallace led Madras in rebounding and steals this season. The senior grabbed 173 rebounds (6.9 a game) and had 61 steals, both among Madras' career top 10.
   Wallace is also among the career leaders in rebounds at No. 5 with 376 and in steals at No. 4 with 148.
   Stacona averaged 12.6 points a game, third in the Intermountain Conference. She scored in double figures in 17 of the Buffs' 23 games.
   The junior Stacona's season high was 21 against Mollala on Dec. 27. She also scored 19 against Mountain View and 18 against Bend in IMC play. Stacona frequently led the Buffs in steals and assists during the season.
