” The Orientals (6-1) rallied to take a one-point lead in the third quarter before Henninger’s Quantae Elijah connected on two key 3-pointers to give the Black Knights the lead for good. Henninger was led by Cronin’s 15 points, 21 rebounds and seven blocked shots. Blue tallied seven of his nine points in the final quarter, including going 5-for-6 from the foul line, to seal the victory.”
Enjoying its status as one of the last three unbeaten boys basketball teams in Central New York, Henninger (7-0) will seek to win the annual Mayor’s Roundball Classic title later this week at Le Moyne College. This tourney features the four city schools, with Henninger the defending tourney champion.
