Texas boys’ basketball

TSD Varsity Boys – New Years Eve Shootout Basketball Tournament

We played around Round Rock Christian in our first game. We rested our
starters and steamrolled over them 49-24.

We had to wait all night to play Geneva as the game started a little past
9 pm. Our boys were clearly tired and didn’t show up to play. We lost

The next day we played Austin Waldorf who is ranked number 2 in TAPPS 2A
division. We played the best game of the season and managed to blow them
out 59-29.

In the Silver Bracket championship game, we played a JV team from a 6A
school in Central Catholic. They had two post players bigger than our post
players.. We struggled to score and lost the game 51-43.

We finished 2-2 at the tourney and our overall record stands at 11-4.  Our
first district game is tomorrow against Hill Country Christian of Austin.


Texas girls’ basketball

The TSD Varsity girls team started off 2020 with a four-game tournament
hosted by Brentwood Christian.  The teams included Brentwood Christian,
St. Dominic Savio, San Antonio Legacy Prep, Regents, and TSD.  Our first
game on Friday morning was against Regents Academy.  We won 47-30.  The
second game was against St. Dominic Savio.  This game would be a
disappointment for all as our passing was sloppy, our turnovers were
uncharacteristic, and we flat out stunk.  This was a classic “we beat
ourselves” game as there are very few games won with 31 turnovers and lost
38-45.  As this was our first loss of the season, the girls were very
upset but it humbled us and allowed us to reflect on commitment, energy,
and taking opportunities for granted.  Our defensive effort on Friday
really were a disappointment.

As we regrouped with two more games on Saturday against Legacy in the
morning and Brentwood in the afternoon.  The girls stepped up with their
intensity on both ends of the court and won the morning game 48-19.  The
afternoon game would be a second match against Brentwood and coaches
understand that beating one team twice is always hard so we reminded the
players to be prepared for their best effort.  Our response was
appropriate – we won 40-20 taking 2nd place.  Coming up is our first
district game and our focus is taking care of business – each player
recognizes that all of the games leading up to Tuesday do not count.
District play is where each game means something and we are ready.

Record: 19-1


random deafsports talk

a tweet today asked:

Not trying to be funny…. but does a “school for the deaf” basketball
team really mean they’re all deaf? Or just have like hearing disabilities?
Or non-deaf students too? I’m confused.

not sure why the person confuses deaf and hearing disabilities with
