Springfield Parkview senior guard Erik Durham took hom the top honor at Monday's annual Tip-Off Club Senior Awards Lunch.  The 6'3" Durham was named the Marty Eddlemon Player of the Year after leading the Vikings to a 21 and 5 regular season, averaging 25.1 points and 4.1 rebounds per game.  Durham, who is still deciding on a college basketball future, also became Parkview's all-time winningest player this season.

"I don't want to leave," said Durham.  "I wish I had that extra year.  It's going to be tough to leave Coach (Bill) Brown.  It's been a great season."

The Jack Roberts Coach of the Year went to Hillcrest's John Schaefer who led the Hornets to an undefeated (9-0) Ozark Conference championshp this season.  Schaefer also won the award in 2009.
