John Henson held in check in victory
Despite shutting down star John Henson, St. Petersburg fell 50-42 to Sickles in Saturday's Class 6A-7 final.
"Henson is good at what he does, but he didn't have to take over the game tonight and that is respect to Sickles," Green Devils coach Chris Blackwell said.
Henson was held to just eight points, three blocks and five rebounds. The St. Petersburg zone defense shut down the big center, but allowed the Gryphons' supporting cast to step up. (St. Petersburg Times)
