Gallaudet women’s basketball

Bison prevail in overtime over Wilson, 78-76

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – The Gallaudet women’s basketball team needed overtime
to defeat Wilson College, 78-76, here Wednesday night in a North Eastern
Athletic Conference (NEAC) South Division game.

Gallaudet (11-13, 8-7 NEAC) is now in position to move up to second place
in the NEAC South Division with a win in Saturday’s regular-season finale.
The Bison are confirmed to make next Tuesday’s NEAC tournament, the
question now is where will GU end up in the final standings.

Wilson (10-14, 5-10 NEAC) used a 25-16 fourth quarter to tie the game at
69 and send it to the extra period where the teams played for five more
minutes.

GU led 37-28 at the half as the two teams each scored 16 points in the
third quarter.

Junior guard/forward Hannah Neild (Litchfield, N.H.) scored a game-high 28
points as she made three three-pointers and went 9-for-10 at the free
throw line. Neild grabbed nine rebounds, blocked three shots, made three
steals and passed out two assists.

Fellow junior Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.) and senior forward Kelsey
Hudson (Blissfield, Mich.) scored 12 points each while Hudson completed
the double-double with 19 rebounds.

Freshman guard Emelia Beldon (Frederick, Md.) scored eight points, made 10
assists and four rebounds

Gallaudet men’s basketball

Loss to Wilson will send Gallaudet on the road for NEAC tournament

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – Gallaudet University lost out on improving its North
Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) men’s basketball tournament seeding
here Wednesday night as the Bison lost 96-60 to Wilson College.

Gallaudet (8-16, 7-8 NEAC) was vying for a chance to host a conference
tournament game next Tuesday night but with the loss the Bison will hit
the road. Wilson (18-6, 12-3 NEAC) is locked into the No. 2 seed in the
South Division and may host Gallaudet next week depending on what happens
Saturday in the regular-season finale for the buff and blue.

Senior forward Andy Cruz (Bronx, N.Y.) and freshman Preston Kelly
(Fishers, Ind.) led the Bison with 10 points each. Cruz grabbed eight
rebounds, made two blocks and two assists while Kelly ripped down seven
boards and passed out two assists.

This week, the JV Basketball teams and Cheerleading has ended their
season.  The Varsity Boys, Girls Basketball, and Wrestling have been
practicing for the league playoffs this weekend!  What happens after the
league is the sectionals then the state.  Good luck to everyone!

Athlete of the Week – JADA DAWSON.  Our standout defender has been working
hard throughout the season to improve her overall basketball game. It
showed last week when the junior had a season and career high 24 points
against Holy Names on February 7 to help our team clinch the regular
season league championship.  This was a tremendous improvement from her
4.2 points season average.

Yesterday was a special moment for our Senior Sherrena Bob as we
celebrated senior night for her. The team would like to thank Sherrena for
her dedicating 3 years as a basketball player for the Roadrunners and we
will truly miss her positive demeanor and willingness to do her best. We
opened up the game trailing 6 to 2 in the first quarter, it was a physical
game but nothing the players have not experienced before. During the
second half we were down 19-8. We were unable to fire up and play
consistent. However, we came out the second half with much better effort
and scored 15 points in the second half to their 16. Freshman Victoria
Baca came out of her shooting slump and led the team with 10 points, 5
rebounds and 2 steals. Sophomore Mya Malone dominated the glass with 11
rebounds, 6 points, 3 blocks, and 1 assist. Sophomore Lindsay Hand had a
quiet night with 5 points, 5 assists, 3 rebounds, 2 steals, and 2 blocks.
8th graders, Sophia Martinez and Olivia Haley provided a gre
at spark to the team with their aggressiveness and positive efforts.
Sophia Martinez scored 2 points, grabbed 1 rebound and a steal. Olivia
Haley grabbed 2 rebounds. Sophomore Andrea Leyba helped the team with 3
rebounds. Senior Sherrena Bob played all 4 quarters and contributed to the
team with 2 rebounds, 1 assist and a steal.

Record- 5-11

Pennsylvania girls’ basketball

On Tuesday February 13, City School came to PSD for the girls’ last home
game of the season. The Lady Panthers started out a little sleepy, but
were still able to beat the Lions 41-23. In the win, our high scorers were
Yasmean who scored 21 points and Gia who scored 11 points.

Final score: 41-23

Our record: 16-1

This weekend, the Lady Panthers will be headed to Ohio School for the Deaf

the tournament and are hoping to bring Home the trophy again to be back to

Rhode Island basketball

RISD Girls Basketball

Friday, 2/9 at ESDAA Div. II Girls Basketball Tournament in Delaware
#6 Rhode Island vs. #3 St. Mary’s

We came into this game as underdogs and our girls embraced this mentality.
We were motivated the entire trip from R.I. to Delaware, ready to make
some noise and we did! We played St. Mary’s tough and we played spirited
basketball. The coaches were amazed by our girls’ display of teamwork as
we grabbed a critical 13-10 halftime lead. Our guard Yasmin took over in
the second half and scored eight out of nine second-half points and we
were able to stop St. Mary’s’ key players and scored a huge 23-19 victory!

RISD
Yasmin S. – 11 Points
Olivia C. – 7 Points
Lillian K. – 3 Points
Ellie L. – 2 Points

Saturday, 2/10 at ESDAA Div. II Girls Basketball Tournament in Delaware
#6 Rhode Island vs. #2 Rochester

This was going to be a huge test for us  especially considering that
Rochester was one of the favorites to contend for the ESDAA Championship
this year. We played against them at MKSD in the Tip-Off Tournament in
December and they soundly defeated us without their best player.

We knew that our girls had to play even better than they did against St.
Mary’s if we were to have any chance of advancing. The first quarter saw
both teams tied at 4-4 apiece and things were looking good for us. In the
second quarter, Rochester found their scoring touch and immediately pulled
away, putting the game out of reach. Our girls tried to battle back, but
we were emotionally burned out from yesterday and couldn’t do much —
Rochester won the game 30-8.

RISD
Lillian K. – 4 Points
Yasmin S. – 2 Points
Ellie L. – 2 Points

Sunday, 2/11 at ESDAA Div. II Girls Basketball Tournament in Delaware
#6 Rhode Island vs. #4 New Jersey

We had a chance to win 3rd place, which would have been a great way to end
the season for us – but we had to go through New Jersey first. We also
played against them in the MKSD Tipoff Tournament and lost against them,
so we were looking to improve on our performance and hopefully bring home
a trophy.

Once again, our girls battled in the first half and the halftime score was
4-4 apiece. We ran out of gas in the second half and New Jersey was able
to make more of their baskets in the second half and pulled away with the
lead and the game, winning 29-10.

RISD
Olivia C. – 4 Points
Yasmin S. – 4 Points
Melissa E-G – 2 Points

Tuesday February 13th
Our girls’ team were supposed to wrap up our season with a home game
against Friends Academy. Unfortunately, due to injuries to our girls’ team
from the tournament as well as fever, we had to cancel the game.

Note: The “scrimmage” on 12/21 against Horace Mann School has been changed
to an official game and a victory for RISD. There was confusion as to HMS
using overage players, which was later clarified and all players who
played in the game was eligible!

Our RISD Girls end our 2017-18 season with a 6-16 record. Very proud of
our girls for a great season and persistence even though we only had 7
girls on the team and sometimes just 5 players available for games!

RISD Girls Basketball Record: 6-16
Next Game: Season Over

RISD Boys Basketball

The 2/13 home game versus Friends Academy was unfortunately cancelled as
well due to the girls’ game being cancelled.

Our boys’ team will be practicing all week long in preparations for the
ESDAA Div. II Boys’ Basketball Tournament, which will be held on our home
floor! We hope to keep the trophy here in Providence and earn our first
championship since 2015 – we may have a chance as the #3 seed!

RISD Boys Basketball Record: 5-14
Next Game: ESDAA Division 2 Boys’ Basketball Tournament
Friday, February 16th vs. West Virginia School for the Deaf (8:00 P.M.)
