John Henry gets 400th William Penn victory

William Penn men’s basketball coach John Henry reached a career milestone over the weekend.  Saturday’s 107-86 win at Missouri Valley was the 400th of his career.  The Statesmen wasted no time giving Henry career win number 401 Sunday with a 123-78 decision over Great Lakes Christian at Penn Gymnasium.  Henry credits others with reaching the milestone.

“It says a lot about having really good players and really good assistant coaches. I’ve been blessed here at William Penn to recruit the kind of kids that I like and the style of play that fits for us.  All those players over the last 18-19 years, I hope they’re enjoying the accomplishment.”

Henry also thanked the three top assistant coaches he has had in his 19 years at William Penn: Brandon Lehart, Joe McKinstry and Blake Sandquist.

Getting back to Sunday’s game, junior Nate Gehring had 25 points, ten rebounds and four blocked shots to give the Statesmen an 8-1 overall record.  Q Cager added 21 points as six Statesmen scored in double figures.  The Statesmen will look to add to Henry’s win total Tuesday night when they host Grand View.
