And we begin our list of award-winners with our All-League/Conference teams in the Cincinnati area. The Cincinnati Metro Athletic Conference is next up, and with the amount of talent in this conference maybe the most difficult to name.
First Team All-CMAC
F- Terry Durham/Woodward High School***- Prep Hoops pick for Conference POY, it was an amazing senior year for the Bulldog forward. Recently named Southwest Ohio District D-II POY, Durham averaged 23 and 12 during the regular season with 19 double-doubles. And he has turned it up a notch in the post-season averaging 29.2 along with 12 boards helping Woodward stay alive in tourney play. According to WCPO.com Durham is a D-I prospect in football and basketball.
F- Shawn Hawkins/Hughes High School- The versatility that this young man plays with on both ends cannot be overlooked. Shawn finished in the top 10 in the conference in assist, rebounds, steals, blocks and field-goal percentage. And his scoring average has gone from 11.3 in the regular season to over 18ppg in the post season.
