lost 53 to 54.

Our defense came out ready but struggled to defend against 3 point
shooters. It was a hot game throughout all 4 quarters, but our girls
played tough until the end and came out with a win! Offense showed a
fantastic team effort to bring home a W! In the win, Gia had 9 points and
6 rebounds, Maysan had 8 points and 10 rebounds. Natalya had 7 points and
was the rebound champ with 17 rebounds.

Our Rooster boys’ basketball team traveled to West Hartford, CT to take on
American School for the Deaf’s JV Boys team. Our team jumped off to a
strong start and was able to maintain control of the lead throughout the
game – while ASD JV Boys team made things exciting in the second half, we
were able to maintain control and broke our five-game losing streak in a
great team win effort.

1/29

Our RISD Boys’ Basketball team played host to Horace Mann School for the
Deaf and held our annual Seniors’ Night ceremony, where we honored three
boys’ basketball student-athletes for their efforts and dedication to the
basketball program over the years.

It was a very nice ceremony and our boys were fired up to win this game
for
our seniors. We got off to a strong start and held a 10-point lead at
halftime while rotating in most of our players. In the second half, we
ramped up the pressure on defense and were able to force Horace Mann into
turnovers, converting them into fast break points. We subbed out our
seniors with less than 2 minutes remaining, giving them the proper sendoff
while getting a sneak peek at what our team next year might look like.

RISD Girls Basketball

1/24

We were finally able to field a full team, bringing 9 girls to the game
against American School for the Deaf’s girls team. This game would be a
good test for us going up against equal competition and it ended up being
a
defensive battle with baskets at a premium.

We held the lead through halftime – ASD was able to seize the lead away
from us in the third quarter and we struggled offensively and couldn’t get
our lead back, losing the game 16-13.

RISD – 4  6  2  1 – 13
ASD –  4  4  6  2 – 16

Yasmin S. – 11 Points, 6 Rebounds, 6 Steals
Melissa E – 2 Points, 9 Rebounds

1/29

On January 29th, we invited Horace Mann School for the Deaf to participate
in a girls’ basketball game on the same night we honored our lone senior
manager, who was a vital part of our basketball team for two seasons.

The first half was an offensive struggle for both teams as they committed
a
fair amount of turnovers and missed easy shots. Our coaches instilled some
urgency in our girls, especially with two weeks left in our basketball
season, to salvage and try to finish strong. Our girls responded very well
and we were finally making the shots that we were missing and pulled away
for a 28-8 victory as six out of our nine players made a basket this game.

HMS –  0   8   – 8
RISD –  6  22  – 28

Yasmin S. – 14 Points
Melissa E. – 6 Points

with way scoring 14 points.  Others contributing with points included:

us.▒ Coach Palmer got us fired up in the second half and we played
much better but not good enough to pull off the win.▒ We lost 39-37

random deafsports thoughts

There is a big difference between deaf high school
basketball and hearing high school basketball.

In all regions, except for the Eastern region, Clerc
and regional tournaments take place in January. Then
for some deaf schools, they deal with season-ending
stretch of games and local league/conference
tournaments.

Hearing tournaments take place at the end of the season.

Big difference, though!
