Gallaudet women’s basketball

Bison clipped by Cardinals, 85-62

WASHINGTON – It was a short trip for the Gallaudet University women’s
basketball team on Saturday evening as the Bison ventured over to the
Brentwood area to take on The Catholic University of America. The Bison
fell to the Cardinals, 85-62, in a non-conference game on Franny Murray
Court.

Gallaudet (1-6) played from behind the majority of the game against
Catholic (9-1). GU freshman forward Cassidy Perry (Frederick, Md.) scored
the first three baskets for the buff and blue as the Bison led for the
first several minutes. Catholic responded with a 16-8 run to take a 20-14
lead after the first quarter.

The Cardinals took a 20-point lead into halftime up 46-26.

In the second half, Catholic kept the Bison at bay and led by double
digits for the remainder of the game. GU outscored Catholic, 19-16, in the
third quarter while the host tallied 23 points in the fourth quarter to 17
by the visitors.

Three different Bison finished in double-figures led by freshman Sunita
Schmidjorg (Austin, Texas), who scored a game-high 17 points. Junior
Jakkisha Smith (Dallas, Texas) tallied 13 points while Perry finished with
10 points and six rebounds. Junior guard Kendall Hudson (Blissfield,
Mich.) added eight points, eight rebounds, two assists and two steals in
the loss.

random deafsports talk

What is the most amazing deaf feat in pro sports?

Is it Derrick Coleman’s strangest touchdown, possibly
in history of NFL?

or is it:

Curtis Pride’s major league debut?

Coleman caught a touchdown pass; actually the QB
attempted a pass to someone else, but the ball hit
the facemask of a defender and floated into the arms
of the very shocked Coleman who happened to be in the
end zone.

Pride’s first four major league hits was a single,
a double, a triple and a homer (not in first four at bats,
just his first four hits)
