Parkview's Durham, Hillcrest's Schaefer win city basketball awards

By

Parkview High School’s Erik Durham was awarded with the Marty Eddlemon Senior MVP award today at the Springfield Tip-Off Club banquet, beating out each of the city’s other seniors.

Durham averaged 25.0 points per game and shot high percentages from the first this winter for the Vikings, the one seed in this week’s Class 5 District 12 tournament.

Hillcrest coach John Schaefer also was honored, earning the Jack Roberts Memorial Coach of the Year award. Schaefer helped Hillcrest to a 20-5 record and Ozark Conference championship despite losing last year’s Eddlemon award winner, Dorial Green-Beckham, to graduation.

The Glendale basketball team won the Eddie Matthews Sportsmanship Award.
