There were early signs that Seshsha Henderson of Oak Park was feeling good shooting the basketball in the Heritage Christian gym Thursday night. He made his first four shots — all threes — in the first quarter. He scored all 12 of his team’s points for a one-point lead after eight minutes.
He finished with eight threes and 31 points, but Heritage Christian came away with the 56-43 victory behind the duo of Dillan Shaw and Tae Simmons. Shaw scored 23 points and Simmons 22.
Henderson, a 6-foot senior, has been a four-year varsity standout for the Eagles, who lost several key players and are playing lots of former junior varsity players. They hung tough with Heritage Christian until Shaw and Simmons took over in the fourth quarter. Heritage Christian (2-0) leaves next week to play in Illinois during Thanksgiving week.
