MARSHFIELD — Marshfield senior Adam Fravert and junior Alec Hinson were among the seven players named to the 2015-2016 All-Wisconsin Valley Conference Boys Basketball First Team as voted on by the seven conference coaches.
Undefeated conference champion Stevens Point had three players — Trevor Anderson, Sam Hauser, and Joey Hauser — named to the first team. Those three, along with Wausau East senior JP Lacy, were unanimous first-team selections.
Hinson, Fravert, and Wausau West junior Jakob Tordsen tied in the voting for the final spot on the first team.
Marshfield junior Grant Michaelis was an honorable mention selection.
Hinson finished fifth in the WVC in scoring (13.8 points per game), tied for second in 3-point percentage (45.6 percent), second in total 3-pointers made (31), and sixth in free throw percentage (81.8).
Fravert, an honorable mention choice a year ago, was seventh in scoring (13.1 points per game) and second in rebounding (8.3 per game) during WVC play.
“Any time you put two first teamers on the all-conference team, you are happy for them,” Marshfield coach Scott Scheuer said. “Alec improved a lot from last year to this year. He put on some weight and got stronger, and he’s always working on his shooting. Adam went 14 weeks without doing anything (due to a broken collarbone). He started slow but got stronger and better as the season went on and deserves this honor.”
Anderson and Sam Hauser earned Co-Player of the Year honors, and Stevens Point’s Scott Anderson and Wausau West’s Nate Lemmens were Co-Coaches of the Year.
