Gallaudet basketball

men’s:
Bison turn in best effort in first win of 2019

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University men’s basketball team turned in its
best performance of the 2018-19 season here Friday night in the Field
House as the Bison defeated SUNY Cobleskill, 86-68, in a North Eastern
Athletic Conference (NEAC) game.

Gallaudet (2-11, 2-3 NEAC) made eight of its 12 3-pointers in the first
half as freshman guard Corey Smith (Miami, Fla.) scored half of them in
the opening 20 minutes of play. Smith scored 14 of his 24 points in the
first half as the Bison took a 43-31 lead into halftime.

women’s:
Shysh nets 1,000th career point as Bison roll to 73-65 win

WASHINGTON – One point stood in the way of Gallaudet University women’s
basketball senior guard Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.) from reaching the
1,000-point mark in her career. The Bison entered Friday evening’s home
North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) showdown with SUNY Cobleskill
ready to make history.

On her second shot of the game, Shysh added her name to an elite group of
Gallaudet women’s basketball players to reach the 1,000-point plateau. She
drained a jumper from the left baseline to give GU a 6-5 lead at the 3:34
mark in the first quarter. The game was briefly stopped to recognize the
feat as GU’s last 1,000-point scorer took place eight years ago.

All-American Easter Fa’afiti was the last GU women’s basketball player to
reach this milestone back on Feb. 20, 2011.

Shysh finished the game with 15 points, seven rebounds and two steals as
she currently has 1,014 career points.

Gallaudet (7-7, 4-1 NEAC) increased its lead in the second quarter as the
Bison outscored SUNY Cobleskill (7-5, 1-3 NEAC) by 10, 23-13, and took a
36-24 lead into halftime.

The Fighting Tigers outscored Gallaudet in the second half 41-37 but it
wasn’t enough as the Bison hung on to win 73-65.

Gallaudet football

Gallaudet’s Demontrai Lewis and Louie Akuffo to play in Dream Bowl VII

ROANOKE, Va. – Two Gallaudet University defensive players will have one
final chance to showcase their skills in Dream Bowl VII hosted by Cutting
Edge Sports Management during Martin Luther King, Jr., weekend. GU senior
defensive back Louie Akuffo (Bowie, Md.) and senior linebacker Demontrai
Lewis (Trinity, Texas) will play in Dream Bowl VII on Monday, Jan. 21, at
noon at the Salem Football Stadium in Salem, Va.

The Dream Bowl features talented players from across the country who
represent the Football Championship Series, Division II and Division III.

The Dream Bowl serves as a collegiate send-off game giving seniors a real
bowl game experience, treating them to first-class accommodations, meals
and facilities, along with a full weekend of football and social related
activities for their friends and families. Invited players will get the
chance to perform in front of National Football League (NFL) and Canadian
Football League (CFL) scouts.

Akuffo and Lewis were selected to the 2018 Eastern Collegiate Football
Conference (ECFC) all-conference first team. Akuffo made his second
straight appearance on the first team and third on an All-ECFC team during
his four-year career. Lewis was an all-conference honorable mention
selection last year. Akuffo finished his career with 239 tackles (166
solo), 18.5 tackles for a loss of 45 yards, three forced fumbles, one
interception, one sack and two blocks. Lewis in two years compiled 70
tackles (46 solo), 17.5 tackles for a loss of 86 yards, 5.5 sacks for a
loss of 42 yards and two forced fumbles.

Akuffo and Lewis will be GU’s second and third players, respectively, to
participate in the Dream Bowl. Current Defensive Backs coach Carneilus
Smith played in Dream Bowl V two years ago.

Florida boys’ basketball

Hello Dragon fans! We had two games this week, at Halifax on 1/8 and
hosted Oak Hall on 1/9.  Victory proved to be too elusive for us.  There
were several positives to take away from both games.

1/8 at Halifax:  Lost 32-55.  A big improvement from our first match-up in
the season opener when we lost 9-49.  We hung in there for about an half
before Halifax went on a big run. I don’t know if it’s some kind of
record, but it was amazing that Luis
Merced managed to draw 3 offensive fouls (charges) in the game.

1/9 vs Oak Hall.  Lost 32-63.  Again, we were in decent shape after the
end of the 1st quarter, 11-17, but couldn’t keep up with their disciplined
style of play.  As a team, we managed 16 offensive rebounds and had one of
our highest Defensive Rebound %
of the season.

Season record: 4-8

Rhode Island boys’ basketball

Tuesday 1/8

We had a boys and girls basketball home game set up against Paul Cuffee
School, but it seems that the other team was a no-show. It seems that Paul
Cuffee planned to reschedule, but the message never got through to us.
Reschedule TBA.

Wednesday 1/9

Our boys’ basketball team played their first game of the 2019 calendar
year, hosting Rocky Hill’s JV team. They had depth while we were playing
short-handed with just 7 players dressing up to play. The game was tense
through the first 10 minutes as both teams played tough defense while
struggling with their shots. Rocky Hill was able to get their offense
going
and built a 20-10 halftime lead.

In the second half, they found their shooting touch while our team’s shots
were having a hard time falling through the rim. Fatigue started to set in
on our Roosters and Rocky Hill was able to pull away by the final score of
47-18. It was a good wake-up game for our boys’ team especially after the
holidays break and we have some things to work on with just a month
remaining until the ESDAA Div. 2 Boys’ Basketball Tournament at West
Virginia.

random deafsports thoughts

While two Gallaudet football players will be playing
in the Dream Bowl VII all-star game, Gallaudet has,
in the past, had players in different all-star games.

Two players come to mind – kicker Justin Wilson and
defensive lineman Michel Daze. And the circumstances
were interesting.

For some reason Wilson was the only kicker in the
All-Star game. As a result, he kicked for
both teams in the game!

Daze, whose best position at Maryland School for
the Deaf, was as a defensive lineman. At Gallaudet,
he was used on the offensive line. But in the all-star
game he went back to his old position!
