Honors pile up for Tiger's boys basketball team
New Richmond seniors Brett Anderson, Dan Stovall and Hayden Zimmerman lead the players chosen for the 2007-08 All-Middle Border Conference boys basketball team.
Anderson was selected as the Most Valuable Player in the conference this season.
Tiger coach Rick Montreal was selected as the MBC Coach of the Year.
Somerset was represented on the All-MBC team by junior David Moulton.
New Richmond's trio of standouts was chosen for the All-MBC team after the Tigers tore through the conference this season. The Tigers rarely were challenged as they went unbeaten through the MBC season. The Tigers finished the season with a 20-3 overall record.
Anderson was named as conference Player of the Year after his unequalled play this season. The Tigers were the best defensive team in the conference this season, with this trio leading the defensive effort. Anderson and Zimmerman are repeat first team All-MBC choices.
Anderson was the backbone of the Tigers' success. He could fill any role on the team.
He was a scoring threat in the post or from the perimeter. Often, when the Tigers were facing a tough pressing team, it was Anderson who brought the ball up the court.
Zimmerman was a tough two-way guard for the Tigers. Never one to shy away from physical play, Zimmerman may have been the Tigers' best post-up player. He also was an accurate shooter from the outside and he drove to the basket well.
Stovall provided the spectacular element for the Tigers this season. His leaping ability was unmatched in the conference. His numerous slam dunks were fan favorites and the Tigers may have never had anyone better at blocking shots.
Montreal wins the Coach of the Year honor in his second season with the Tigers. The Tigers have a 36-9 record in his two seasons at the helm.
Moulton is also a repeat first team All-MBC choice. He led the Spartans in scoring this season, seeing heavy defensive attention because of the Spartans' struggles in the offensive end.
