continued Proctor scored the first basket of the second half to take its first lead since just after the opening tip. The visitors extended their edge to 38-34 before a Henninger rally set up a back-and-forth pattern that would last all through the fourth quarter.
There were five ties and six lead changes over the game’s final 10 minutes. Saroney expects nothing but that type of struggle whenever his team locks horns with the Raiders.
“It’s a great rivalry,” Saroney said. “A lot of mutual respect (and) similar programs.”
Saroney is already anticipating another Henninger-Proctor matchup come sectional tournament time.
“Likely,” Saroney said. “This is my 10th year. Probably six out of nine we’ve played somewhere in the playoffs. I expect it. I know they expect it. And we look forward to it.”
Spinner led the winners with a game high 19 points. Tevin Chisholm dropped in 14 points. Chris Hicks and Ahmad McKinney tallied eight and seven points, respectively.
