The boys' basketball team won the Semifinals this week, and will advance to the finals this weekend for the second year in a row.

From the NY Daily News this morning: 

"When the final buzzer sounded, Fannie Lou Hamer coach Marc Skelton threw his arms around his senior star, Isaiah Thomas.
Thomas’ 21 second half points lead the No. 6 Panthers to a 65-59 grind-it-out victory over No. 2 Holcombe L. Rucker in a PSAL Class B boys basketball semifinal Tuesday night at York College. Thomas finished with 24 points for Fannie Lou, which won the ‘B’ title a year ago. As the No. 1 seed last season, Fannie Lou beat then No. 4 Rucker in the semifinals."
