F-M downs Henninger as Section III hoops heat up

      It's hard to believe but Section III playoffs are less than a month away, and with that said, every game down the home stretch is even more important.

      So we headed over to Fayetteville-Manlius High School on Friday night to watch the Hornets take on Henninger. This game was close throughout but eventually John Schurman's 25 points and T.J. Wheatley's double-double (12 points, 15 rebounds) were too much as F-M beat the Knights 69-61. Henninger was led by Ahmad McKinney who scored 25 points.

      The Hornets outscored Henninger in every quarter, but never by more than three points. F-M is now 10-2 on the year while Henninger is 8-2
