Florida boys’ basketball

Hello Dragon fans! We just completed our best week of the season.  In a
3-game slate, we came out 2-1.  Both of our wins were in games that kept
fans on the edge of their seats from tip-off to the final buzzer.  The
third game got away from us in the 2nd
half when fatigue set in and rotations were tinkered with.  Nonetheless,
the boys worked hard and it was a great pre-tournament week.

1/14 vs Duval Charter:  Won 46-41. We previously lost to them by 11
points.  We wouldn’t be denied this time.  The two halves were played in a
completely different manner.  The first half, we led 17-10.  The second
half saw more offense as it was 29-31.
We managed to sink clutch freethrows to keep our lead at a mildly
comfortable distance as the clock ticked away.  In a coaches’ dream, all 5
starters scored between 7-13 points.

1/15 at First Baptist Church Academy- Palm Coast.  Won 49-47.  It was our
first ever meeting with FBCA, and what a nail-biter it was.  Aided by a
9-0 run in the 3rd quarter, we managed to escape their matchbox gym with a
hard fought victory.  5 of our
players had 2 steals and 4 of our players had 2 or more assists.  Luis
Merced had a game high 17 points.

1/17 at River City Science Academy. Lost 47-71.  There’s no shame in this.
Yes, I wish we played better, but we kept our focus on the big picture and
tinkered with playing time to keep our players fresh for next week’s
tournament. Allen Rosales had his
best scoring game this year with 16 points.

Up next for us is the Mason Dixon Tournament.  It’s a 11-team tournament
comprised of Schools for the Deaf in the Southeast USA.  We are seeded
4th.  We won the tournament last year and hope to defend it well this
year.  Information can be found at
masondixon.org and below.

Season record: 6-9

Next games: 67th Annual Boys Mason Dixon Tournament at Mississippi.  First
game will be Thursday at 2pm CST vs Virginia School for the Deaf.  The
next game will be on Friday, either at 8:45am (if we lose Thursday) or
8:00pm (if we win Thursday).  Other
games are TBA depending on outcomes of the first two games.

Rhode Island girls basketball

RISD Girls Basketball

Our Lady Roosters’ basketball team played the final leg of a three-game
week at home against Blackstone Valley Prep. Our games over the last two
years have been competitive, so we were in for a good one today.

Our girls jumped out to a great start, dictating the tempo en route to a
9-2 lead through the first 8 minutes and eventually 11-6 at one point.
BVP’s coach called timeout, made some adjustments and ramped up their
defensive pressure, which caught our girls off guard. We couldn’t adjust
accordingly to stop the momentum shift, as BVP went on a 13-0 run to end
the first half with a 19-11 lead.

Our girls’ team fought valiantly throughout the second half, but we were
never able to cut the lead to within a single possession even though we
had
opportunities to do so. Kudos to BVP for a well-fought game and
maintaining
the lead when the game seemed to shift into our favor from time to time.

BVP –    19  17  – 36
RISD –   11  12  – 23

Yasmin S. – 8 Points, 9 Rebounds, 3 Steals
Melissa E-G. – 7 Points, 14 Rebounds

RISD Girls Basketball Record: 4-7
Next Game: Thursday, January 24 @ American School for the Deaf (5:00 P.M.)

random deafsports thoughts

A Clerc fan said:

Grrrrr, why are the Clerc games being livestreamed for pay?

Comment by DeafDigest Sports editor:

more and more high school, college and pro teams charge for
live streaming. Athletic programs are costly and they try
to recoup their costs by livestreaming revenue.
