After losing to Proctor six games in a row, Henninger’s fate looked bleak headed into today’s sectional final. The pre-game hype was evident with local Syracuse writers predicting an “instant classic“. Henninger’s only two losses this year were to Proctor but this time around Henninger got the last laugh with the 57-41 victory (as Tommy Amaker would say, it’s hard to beat a team three times). Cronin had 10 points and 16 rebounds for Henninger. Syracuse bound (football) Proctor star Deandre Preaster had a game high 21 points but it was not enough. It was definetely a big win for Henninger, and individually for Ben. In his interview after Henninger’s last win Cronin said that he wanted to play Proctor because he needed to beat them and he got it done. Congrats Ben, Henninger advanced to play in the regional finals next Saturday. Watch video of the game from WTVH here (Click ‘Watch the Story’).
