Henning to host NYM on Friday night
Henning eclipsed 100 points for the first time this season as the Hornets improved to 17-1 overall and 10-0 in the Park Region Conference.
After defeating Long Prairie-Grey Eagle by a score of 80-40 on Monday night, the Hornets defeated Sebeka by a score of 104-34 on Saturday night.
This week the Hornets will get a bit of home cooking as they will host Wadena-Deer Creek on Tuesday night and New York Mills on Friday.
The Hornets are currently ranked fourth in the state and trail just Cass Lake-Bena, New Life Academy and Cherry in the state rankings.
Defending section champion, Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa, is currently ranked seventh in the state.
Long Prairie-Grey Eagle scored the opening two baskets of the game in transition, but from there the Henning Hornets took over on their way to an 80-40 win on Monday night.
After trailing 4-0 early, the Hornets scored the next 23 points in the game to take a 23-4 lead. Henning led by a score of 39-10 at halftime as they were on fire from behind the 3-point line throughout the night. The Hornets went 14-30 from behind the 3-point line with Kale Misegades shooting 8-9 from behind the arc to finish with a team high 32 points.
In the second half it was more of the same for the Hornets as they outscored the Thunder by a score of 41-30 to come away with the non-conference win. Despite the lopsided score the Hornets were forced to battle some foul trouble throughout the game as they were whistled for 19 team fouls, compared to just five for the Thunder. That led to a number of additional free throw attempts for the home LP-GE team.
As a team the Hornets had 26 assists on just 31 made shots from the field.
“I thought we did a nice job sharing the ball against their trapping zone,” said head coach Randy Misegades.
Kale Misegades led the way with 32 points on just 12-18 shooting from the floor. He also had 6 assists and 8 rebounds. Tyson Misegades scored 14 points, while Mason Hammer scored 11 points to go along with 7 assists and 6 rebounds.
Lane Dilly recorded a double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds.

Not only did Henning spoil Sebeka’s homecoming on Saturday night with a commanding win over the Trojans, but the Hornets eclipsed the century mark for the first time this season with a 104-34 win.
“We took care of business tonight and were fortunate to get all 15 guys into the game,” said head coach Randy Misegades. “Our team shared the ball and knocked down some shots. We’re looking forward to two more PRC games next week.”
