Skaneateles (14-5) next plays Holland Patent, the no. 12 seed. Norris scouted the Golden Knights in its 59-56 first-round win over No. 5 seed Sherburne-Earlville.
“They’ve got a real good big kid and a real good guard,” Norris said. “They’re a team that’s pretty athletic and they really hit the glass hard. It’s going to be a physical game. We’re going to have to control the boards to beat them.”
