Four Buffs on All-IMC hoop teams
Four Madras players are part of the All-Intermountain Conference basketball teams.
   Senior Robert Main is a second-team selection with classmates Albert Adams and Darrell Ceciliani third team selections.
   On the IMC girls' team, Marissa Ahern is an honorable mention pick. A complete list of all of the IMC selections is in Scoreboard.
   Main averaged 14.1 points in Madras' IMC games, leading the White Buffalos with 45 3-point shots. His season high of 32 points came at Pendleton on Feb. 9 in which he drained 10 treys. Main scored in double figures during 11 of the Buffs' 14 IMC games with 23 points twice (the league opener at The Dalles-Wahtonka and season finale at Hermiston) plus 22 against Summit at home.
   Adams averaged 14.0 points a game with 43 treys. His IMC high was 22 points against Hermiston (on Jan. 21) when he also had a season-best seven 3-pointers. Adams also scored 20 points at Summit (on Jan. 29).
   During the IMC season, Adams scored in double figures in 13 of 14 games with a nine-point effort at Pendleton (Feb. 9) breaking his season streak.
   Ceciliani averaged 12.5 points. He led Madras in assists (47) and steals (24). His season high of 24 points was at home against Summit (on Feb. 12). In that game, Ceciliani tied his IMC high of three treys (duplicated in three other games).
   Ceciliani's season high of seven steals also came in that home game against Summit. He also tied his IMC best of five assists against Summit (the other instance at Mountain View on Jan. 19).
   Hermiston's JJ Ross is the IMC boys' player of the year.
