WASHINGTON – It was an emotional and thrilling victory for Gallaudet
University here Saturday as the Bison defeated College of Saint Elizabeth,
79-72, in a key North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) men’s basketball
divisional game. The win capped a successful Alumni Madness day, plus a
special “Gold Rush” game as GU wore alternative gold uniforms thanks to
Route 66 Promotions.

Gallaudet (5-13, 5-5 NEAC) led for the majority of the game and fended off
a late push made by St. Elizabeth (5-12, 2-8 NEAC) in the final minute.

Sophomore guard Trace Martin (Shingle Springs, Calif.) scored 13 of his
career-high 20 points in the first half as he finished the game with four
three-pointers. Martin and junior forward Cody Crace (Westfield, Ind.)
made back-to-back three-pointers in the closing minutes of the first half
where GU led 41-37.

In the second half, Gallaudet led by as much as eight points before the
visiting Eagles took a brief two-point lead, 57-55, at the 11:35 mark
after Jordan Simmons (13 points) made a layup and a free throw.

The Bison quickly regained the lead when freshman guard Preston Kelly
(Fishers, Ind.) made his own three-point play just 36 seconds later. Kelly
finished with 10 points, seven rebounds and a game-high seven assists.

Gallaudet led the rest of the way while St. Elizabeth lingered around
until the final buzzer sounded.

Senior forward Andy Cruz (Bronx, N.Y.) scored a team best 21 points to go
with 11 rebounds, six blocks, five steals and two assists. GU had four
players reach double figures including Cruz, Martin, Kelly and sophomore
guard Noah Valencia (Riverside, Calif.), who added 13 points.
