Most Valuable Player
Ethan Richardson, Madera, Soph. Center
In his sophomore season, Richardson began to dominate games. He helped the Coyotes to their best County/Metro Athletic Conference finish since joining the league with a 6-4 record to place third. Richardson averaged almost 15 points, seven rebounds and three blocks per game. He scored double figures in every game, but three. He also had double-doubles in five games and had a high of seven blocks against San Joaquin Memorial-Fresno. The 6-7 center was a first team All-CMAC selection.
Mackey West, Madera, Sr. Forward
The inside-outside game worked well with West and Richardson. He was second to Richardson in scoring with 11.3 points per game and pulled down 3.5 rebounds per game. He made 61 3-pointers with his quick, high-arcing shot at a 46 percent clip. Almost 65 percent of West’s points came on 3-pointers. He was a first team All-CMAC honoree.
Isaiah Johnson, Madera, Sr. Guard
Johnson ran the offense for the Coyotes and was one of the quickest players on the court. He scored more than five points per game and almost three rebounds and two steals per game. He was adept at poking the ball from a defender and going for an easy layup. He was a CMAC honorable mention.
Ruben Rodriguez, Madera South, Sr. Guard
Rodriguez’s shooting range began once he stepped on the court. There wasn’t a shot that Rodriguez wouldn’t take, from the 30-foot three-pointer to the acrobatic up-and-under driving layup. He led the team in scoring, and shot well from the free throw line. When he got hot from 3-point range, there was no stopping his momentum. He was a second team All-CMAC selection...
