Gallaudet wins second in a row to begin February

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University men’s basketball team won its second
straight game here Tuesday night to begin the month of February as the
Bison defeated Penn St.-Berks, 71-69, in the Field House.

Gallaudet (4-15, 4-6 NEAC) led for the majority of the first half and
extended its lead to 12 points, in the final minute before halftime, as
the Bison took a 45-36 lead into the locker room.

Penn St.-Berks (2-16, 2-8 NEAC) got into the game in the second half and
took the lead at the 13:36 mark up 51-49.

GU responded with four straight baskets, including three 3-pointers, to
take a 60-59 lead with 6:39 left in regulation. From there the lead
changed hands eight times as both teams went up-and-down the court. Junior
guard Preston Kelly (Fishers, Ind.) came through with three aggressive
drives in the lane to convert layups and regain the lead for Gallaudet on
each basket. His final layup came with 28 seconds left as GU clung to a
70-69 lead.

PSB went down the court and missed a 3-pointer as junior Shawn Daniels
(Lakeland, Fla.) made a big rebound and got fouled in the process. Daniels
made the first of two shots from the free throw line with two seconds left
in the game. Daniels missed his second shot but senior center Steve
Valencia-Biskupiak (Riverside, Calif.) came down with the big offensive
rebound as time expired.

Senior guard Noah Valencia (Riverside, Calif.) led all-scorers with 25
points as he surpassed 1,700 career points in the process. Valencia
currently sits fifth all-time on Gallaudet’s scoring list with 1,711
career points. Valencia scored 17 of his 25 points in the first half as he
made 3 of 5 shots from 3-point range.

random DeafSports thoughts

Yesterday’s thoughts revolved around Clerc – hosted
during the season and not at end of the season.

A coach at a deaf school responded, saying
that there are always schools education planning
after the holidays.

But that at the end of the basketball season, there
are states that host their own post season tournaments.

And that there are always Easter breaks.  And speaking
of airfares, costs are lower at the end of the
season as compared to the Holiday season.

Another big issue is weather, especially at these
cold weather states.

two conference games last week. In a 78-70 win at Penn St.-Abington, Perry
recorded 28 points, eight rebounds, three assists, and three blocks. The

Florida at Crescent City Raiders – 1/30/20

Final Score: 52-12 (First game – 35-12)

Well, the score says it all. We captured the last win of the season. Yes, it’s
sad to say our last win because it was our last game for 2019-2020 basketball
season. In first two minutes of that game, it did not come easy, we missed many
easy layups. After the timeout, we started to pick up the rhythm after our Lady
Dragons began to utilize their learned skills from this season. After 1st
quarter, all girls were able to play, and they did an awesome job on the
defensive side. We also shined on the offensive side, constantly attacking the
basket as everyone on the team scored! Our dear two Seniors, Shylah Thomas and
Samantha Suarez, played with their heart. Shylah Thomas finished with 6 points
and 5 rebounds while Samantha had 2 points and 7 rebounds! We will miss them!
Lastly, we love how our Lady Dragons finished their season. They were expected
to finish it strong, and they finished it stronger! We are proud of our Lady
Dragons!

Thank you for all your support this year and see you next year!

random DeafSports thoughts

Should Clerc have moved its tournament
dates to the end of the basketball
season rather than just after the
Holidays?

Perhaps, but it won’t work. Immediately
after the basketball season, there is
track and other spring sports. And
some of the stronger teams would be
forced to make a choice – participating
in Clerc or in their home area conference
championships.

Super Bowl is over. Much talked is 49’ers issues
with clock management.

Has it happened to Deaf Sports?

Yes. Too many times.

What this means is that some great Hearing coaches
have clock management issues – same as some
deaf coaches!

Hearing Sports pressure or Deaf Sports pressure?

Same thing!

Strong second half spurs Bison to victory

ABINGTON, Pa. – The Gallaudet University women’s basketball team picked up
a thrilling 78-70 win here Saturday against Penn St.-Abington in a North
Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) South Division game on the road.

Gallaudet (6-11, 4-5 NEAC) fell behind by 10 points to Penn St.-Abington
(7-10, 5-4 NEAC), out of the gate, and trailed for the entire first half
until the Bison tied the game at 35-35 at intermission.

In the third quarter, GU made its move and secured the lead early on in
the second half. The Bison outscored the Nittany Lions by 10 points,
21-11, and led 56-46 with 10 minutes left to play. PSA closed the gap to
three points with several minutes left to play but GU was able to fend off
any rally to secure the win.

Freshman forward Cassidy Perry (Frederick, Md.) scored a career-high 28
points as she made 12 of 16 shots from the field. Perry grabbed eight
rebounds and made three big blocks and passed out three assists and made
one steal. Junior guard Emelia Beldon (Frederick, Md.) played the entire
game and finished with 22 points and five assists. Freshman guard Sunita
Schmidjorg (Austin, Texas) and junior guard Kendall Hudson (Blissfield,
Mich.) added 12 and 11 points, respectively. Hudson led the team with nine
defensive rebounds.

ABINGTON, Pa. – The Gallaudet University men’s basketball team snapped its
four-game losing streak here Saturday with a 70-53 win over Penn
St.-Abington in a North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) game.

Gallaudet (3-15, 3-6 NEAC) completes the season sweep of Penn St.-Abington
(7-11, 2-7 NEAC) as the Bison won, 67-65, in the Field House two weeks ago
(Jan. 15).

GU used a 20-3 run midway through the first half to break open a 7-7 game
and take a 27-10 lead with five minutes left before the half. Senior guard
Noah Valencia (Riverside, Calif.) scored Gallaudet’s final five points as
he finished with 15 points in the opening half where the Bison led 34-17.

In the second half, both teams scored 36 points each.

Valencia led all-scorers with 27 points as he made 10 of 20 shots from the
field, including six 3-pointers, to go with eight steals, two assists and
two rebounds. Senior center Steve Valencia-Biskupiak (Riverside, Calif.)
added 14 points, six boards and four assists.

random deafsports talk

Baseball season is coming up, quicker than what
we realize.

Two deaf schools were in negotiations to have a
minor league baseball stadium constructed on
their campus. At both schools (Ohio SD and
Washington SD) there were plenty of space to
accommodate the stadium property and to have
it separated from the school property.

For one reason or other, both ideas did not
get past negotiating stages with the school
superintendents and administrations. That
was about 15-20 years ago.

FSDB VBB game results 1/30

Hello Dragon Fans.  After two long weeks and action packed tournaments in which
we played in 3 overtime games, I dreaded this week’s schedule- two away games on
back-to-back nights.  However, the boys had other plans- much welcome plans, I
must say.  We won both games!

The first night, we played Taylor Hs (Pierson, FL).  We got off to a fast start
but allowed them to get back in the game right before halftime.  We dominated
the last 2 quarters for a 51-35 win.

The next day, we went over to Orange Park to face our nemesis, St. Johns Country
Day School.  They bested us earlier this year 26-32.  Once again, we started the
game playing well, but by the 4th quarter it became a back-n-forth affair.

SJCDS tied the game up 40-40 with approximately 20 seconds left in the game.  We
committed a turnover right after their made basket.  It was their ball with
maybe 15 seconds left.  They ran a play, but we stole the ball and went the
other way.  Luis Merced missed a jump shot with 3 seconds left, but Walter
Douglas was in the perfect position to put it back in from 6 feet away.  The
clock read 0:00.00 right as the ball went through the net.  Needless to say,
pandemonium ensued on our bench.

Next week we will have two HOME games to wrap-up our season- Monday and Tuesday
nights at 6pm.

Evangel Christian Academy 57

The Roadrunners defeated the New Mexico Class A 10th ranked team, Albuquerque
Evangel Christian Academy – on a buzzer-beating three point shot by senior Luis
Villalobos with .7 of a second left at home.

In a game that saw Evangel’s ferocious man to man defense start attacking us
from the opening tip-off and run to a strong 18-point lead with 4 minutes left
in the 3rd Q with our star player, Senior post Luis Villalobos sitting on the
bench with four fouls, all in the first two quarters.  Just when things looked
bad, our boys came alive when Villalobos entered the game at the 4 minute mark
and immediately scored on a strong post-up move. That basket sparked our boys,
who then fought their way back into the game basket by basket with tremendous
defensive stops at the opposing end.  At the 2 minute mark, we were finally tied
55 to 55. After some missed baskets by both teams,  Evangel then held the ball a
full minute, winding it down to the 2 second mark before making a scoring move
inside, getting ahead 57-55, with 1.7 on the clock.  With two timeouts left,
Coach Gutierrez called the first one which was then batted out of bounds by ECA,
leaving .7 on the clock and our ball right in front of our bench.  8th grader
Adrien Ercolino was able to get off a good fake then a direct pass to Villalobos
who turned, shot and let fly – the ball banking in for the win!

Sophomore point guard Bruce Brewer, Jr was able to carry the team on his sinewy
and capable shoulders despite being double teamed during Villalobos long tenure
on the bench – scoring 32 points, snatching 7 rebounds and handing out 7
assists.  In addition to the aforementioned winning three point shot, Villalobos
finished with 15 points and 14 rebounds in what was basically two full quarters
of play. Freshman post Kieran Vollmar had 9 points, 5 rebounds and 2 blocks
despite a slight illness.

The victory moved the Roadrunners to 10-4. They next travel to Pine Hill on
Monday before hosting Walatowa Tuesday, complete with a pre-game school-wide pep
rally during final period. They then will fly to Oklahoma for the annual Great
Plains basketball tournament on Wednesday morning.

deaf goalie, 100 years ago

Andy Greig, who was deaf, was the goalie for the
Darlington FC, a very low level minor league pro
soccer team in Great Britain.

This team was competing in the annual FA Cup (an open
British national soccer tournament, involving teams from
the very bottom to the very top Premier League teams).

On that day 100 years ago, Darlington FC was paired
with a high level Sheffield FC in the opening round
of a 2-game, most goals scored, series.

There was no way Darlington would defeat Sheffield, except
that Darlington did – by a 1-0 score. The deaf goalie was
the hero, stopping desperate Darlington shots.

Greig’s magic would only last that one game as both teams
played again few days later (most goals scored in
combined two games would advance the winner to the
next round). Darlington lost 4-0 and was quickly
eliminated.

Yet for that one day, it was the most glorious
sporting moment in Darlington FC’s history.

Part of the newspaper story on Greig:

And he was deaf. So he didn’t hear the tumult on the final whistle.

………………………

random deafsports talk

see the soccer story above.

There have been many deaf hero athletes in past
big games, years way back. No one remembers the
Darlington-Sheffield soccer game that was played
100 years ago, except for sports historians that
love to do research. It is just that it is always
thrilling to find a deaf athlete emerge as a
hero – even if his proudest moment became fleeting!

DeafDigest Sports editor always loves to dig out
stories of past, and long forgotten deaf sporting
heroes!

FSDB VBB MD Tournament Results 1/25

Hello Dragon Fans.  For the 68th Annual Mason Dixon Boys Basketball Tournament,
we travelled to Kentucky School for the Deaf in Danville.

We were seeded #3 going into the 9-man tournament.  There are 11 schools in the
Mason Dixon conference, but 2 couldn’t make it- ENC and Virginia.  Last year we
finished in 3rd with Mississippi claiming the crown and Alabama being the
runner-up.

This year, we were able to advance to the Championship game, but fell short to
Alabama in overtime.  We trailed for the whole game until mounting a furious
rally to tie the game up at 38-38.  We had the ball last but couldn’t convert to
end the game.  In overtime, Alabama had our number and built too large of a lead
for us to get in an offensive groove.

Matthew Guillou, Marcus Guillou, and Luis Merced were selected on the
all-tournament team.  Justin Cabrera sank 8 of 12 3-pointers in the 3-pt
shooting contest to take home the crown!

Years ago deaf club basketball teams constantly
talked about one issue all the time.

What was the issue?

Weather!

This meant being careful in not scheduling distant
games with other deaf clubs that required a lot
of traveling during bad weather!

We are improving with our ball movement and execute our plays. We saw a
much
more fast break from this game but we missed a lot of easy layups. We will
need to work on reading the ball and box out for a rebound.  Rebound is
one
of the important factors in the game to win a ball game. We have some time
to practice those little things before gpsd weekend.

Riverside 8-man football team is seeking
an opponent with a deaf 8-man football team.

Hope Riverside will find a game.

This leads to another matter – normally DeafDigest
Sports would start collecting football schedules
now for the following football season.

DeafDigest Sports editor has decided to wait until
the spring months to start collecting these schedules.

There have been cases of some deaf schools winding up their
schedules as early as January or February – only to decide
later on to cancel their football seasons. This is the
reason for the wait until spring time.

If you, however, have completed your schedule now, you
can send these to DeafDigest Sports editor today.

Thank you.

Gallaudet’s Ben Sealts claims his fifth NEAC Men’s Swimmer
of the Week honor this season

LATHAM, N.Y. – The North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) announced its
conference student-athlete of the week awards for the week of Jan. 28 and
Gallaudet
University junior Ben Sealts  was selected as the NEAC Men’s Swimmer of the
Week for a fifth time this season.

Sealts won all three of his individual events he swam in last Saturday in
a 133-120 loss to SUNY Cobleskill. He collected three wins—200-yard
backstroke, 200-yard
butterfly and 200-yard IM—in a dual meet against the Fighting Tigers.
Sealts’ touched the wall in 2:05.89 to win the 200-yard IM by five
seconds. The junior’s win
in the 200-yard butterfly came by three seconds and the 200-yard back saw
Sealts win by a second.

Florida’s Mason Dixon Girls Basketball in South Carolina results

Florida vs Kentucky – 1/22/20
Final Score: 46-9

Even though we won the game 46 to 9, we weren’t playing at our best. We started
off sluggish in the 1st quarter, scoring only 6 points and allowing them score 3
points. Our girls were not 100% physically and mentally ready. We moved slowly
offensively and defensively. However, into the 2nd quarter, we started to pick
up the pace and played better. We were finally aggressive during the 2nd
quarter, scoring 20 points, while allowing only 3 extra points on their side.
During the second half, everyone were able to play, and they did an awesome job
on the defensive side. We also shined on the offensive side, constantly
attacking the basket. Finally, we took advantage of our cushy lead by slowing
down the game tempo to work on our passing, cutting, and rebounding. Our True
Freshman, Oceana Brown, led the team with 14 points and 4 steals. She also had 3
rebounds and 2 assists. Our junior, Lourdine Jordonne, rebounded 10 and scored 8
points with 1 assist. Way to go, Lady Dragons!

Stats:
Oceana Brown: 14 pts, 3 reb, 2 ast, 4 stl
Olivia Brown: 6 pts, 5 reb, 5 ast, 3 stl
Lourdine Jordonne: 8 pts, 10 reb, 1 ast, 1 stl

Florida vs Alabama – 1/23/20
Final Score: 50 – 14

We are mighty proud of our girls! Coming off from yesterday’s game, we
confidently controlled the game throughout on both offensive and defensive side.
We started with full-court presses and our usual hard nosed defense on Alabama,
which allowed us to easily net 19 points in the 1st quarter. On top of that, we
shut down their offensive end by allowing only 2 points. During the second
quarter, while continuing to maintain the momentum with our offense against ASD,
we scored an extra 10 points and only permitted them 2 extra points to the
board. During the second half, we decided to play everyone on the bench so they
could have ample playing time and work on their basketball skills. While doing
so, they weren’t careful offensively and defensively. Because of that we gained
only 6 points during the third quarter and allowed them 6 more. In the fourth
quarter, we made some necessary changes so we could finish strong. We finally
were better on our defense and offense, including transitions in the between. We
were able to add 15 more points to the board; and allowed only 4. to work on our
offense and transition from our defense. Hats off to a hard-working sixth woman
player, Taria Pellicer- Her stats for the night are as follows: 9 points, 8
steals, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, and 1 block.  Also outstanding tonight, a point
guard, Olivia Brown, shot for 13 points with 3 rebounds, 3 assists, and 5
steals. Our center, Lourdine Jordonne, while she was equally important in
securing the win tonight, was out after the first half because she was sick. In
the first half alone, she contributed with 9 points, 3 rebounds, 5 steals, and 2
assists. The rest of the scoring are almost spread evenly amongst Lady Dragons-
Oceana 7, Ja’Myra 4, Samantha 2, Shylah 2, Elsie 2, and Emma 2.

Stats:
Olivia Brown: 13 pts, 3 reb, 3 ast, 5 stl
Oceana Brown: 7 pts, 2 reb, 5 ast, 11 stl
Lourdine Jordonne: 9 pts, 3 reb, 2 ast, 5 stl

Florida vs Mississippi – 1/23/20
Final Score: 30 – 50

Finally, the championship. And it wasn’t an easy game to watch. We were against
Mississippi School for the Deaf, and it was very physical from the start to the
end. After the first two games of the tournament, we were on fire. We were
ready, and we could see that inside the locker room before entering the floor.
With that fire as we began the first quarter, we quickly put 8 points on the
board. We were fierce and strong the first couple of minutes. We full court
pressed the bulldogs, but as soon as we approached the final minutes of the
first quarter, the momentum shifted to Mississippi. They were able to break
through our full court presses. We were 10 to 2 before they broke through. Our
players started to lose their focus and ended up misreading and cheating their
roles, which allowed them to catch up and tie with our 10 before the quarter
ended.  In the second quarter, our momentum was clearly gone. While we missed
many uncontested and easy layups and made many poor shot selections, the
bulldogs gained their lead on us. Our field goal percentage was quickly reduced
to 8% in the 2nd quarter! The bulldogs were able to make their cushion bigger
before ending the first half with 22 to our 13. In the third quarter, we
continued to deal with not just the hard battle against the bulldogs but with
ourselves trying to get better offensively and defensively. But we couldn’t
build momentum for our side- we ended up falling behind while the bulldogs
gained more to their lead. We ended the third quarter with 19 to their 32. MSD
continued with their lucky streak as we continued to make numerous mistakes
during the 4th quarter.  They gained extra 18 on us, while we only added 11
before ending the championship game with 30 to their 50. We really struggled not
offensively and defensively, and for some reason we could not correct ourselves.
After a numerous timeouts and a lengthy discussion in the locker room during the
half time, we could not get our minds straight. We missed so many easy layups
and close range shots. We were exhausted. We were not focused. We basically gave
the game away without much of a fight. We shot 15% field goal in the 4th
quarter. Instead of coming away from Mason Dixon with a championship trophy, we
got the second place.

Congratulations to FSDB boys for getting the second place, and to the
cheerleaders for winning the first place! Also, please congratulate to both
Brown sisters, Olivia and Oceana, for earning All Tournament Team Award and
Taria Pellicer for winning the 3-point contest. Our next game is tomorrow at
Taylor Pierson.

Not to brag, but we instantly became crowd favorites at the tournament due to
our style of play and hustle.  The gym was rocking during our games.  We were
seeded 6th coming into the tournament and finished in 5th place.  We played in
two overtime games.

Walter Douglas was selected on the all-tournament team.  Allen Rosales tied the

WILLIGAN – Our Eagles went to Riverside last weekend to play against 5
other deaf schools in the annual wrestling tournament.  On Friday, we knew
that we would not
win any duals (team) matches because we only had 8 of the 14 weight
classes.  However, many of them competed and won matches.  On Saturday,
they entered individual
matches and competed in their own weight classes.  Samuel Brown won  the
132 pound weight class Champion and George Quirie was 2nd in the weight
class of 152.
Congratulations to everyone!

DUAL SPORTS – Due to small numbers on the girls side, we made an
announcement to the Cheerleading and Girls Basketball teams that we are
allowing dual team sports
athletes for the remainder of the season to help the teams finish their
seasons.

ATHLETE OF THE WEEK –  Miguel Garcia Garcia, our junior wrestler
participated in his first tournament ever.  He picked up quickly and
contested in all of the
matches.  He has become an avid student in learning the finer technical
aspects of the sport and we are excited to see him carry on to this next
year!

ATC 68

The Roadrunners improved to 9-4 on the season with an away victory over the ATC
Phoenixes.  The game was tight through but the boys kept their composure all
across the floor whenever ATC made their own runs. Senior post Luis Villalobos
was sensational with 34 points and 16 rebounds, despite being guarded by their
two best players most of the game. Sophomore point guard Bruce Brewer Jr. had 25
points, 10 assists and 7 rebounds. Freshman post Kieran Vollmar had 15 points
and 9 rebounds. Everyone got into the game was sophomore Jesus Rios put the game
out of reach with a game ending steal, was fouled on the ensuing layup and made
the clinching two free throws (the first two of the year for him). 8th grader
Adrien Ercolino also made two steals, 2 points and had a block.  The Roadrunners
next travel to Albuquerque to take on the state’s tenth ranked team in Class A
in Evangel Christian Academy.

Record 9-4

boys:
Riverside Boys 48  Hamilton 45

Riverside boys played a sluggish start but regrouped and led by 10 at
halftime, 28-18.  Hamilton came out strong in the 3rd quarter and trimmed
our lead to only 4
points at end of 3rd quarter, 37-33.  Thanks to our stingy defense, we
were able to keep our lead in the 4th quarter.  Dylan Eveland, junior,
scored game-leading 22
points along with double-digit rebounds and Felix Gonzales, freshman point
guard, helped with 10 points and had a few timely steals throughout the

it

random deafsports talk

it was learned that at the Clerc boys’ basketball
tournament, Florida School for the Deaf and Blind
instantly became crowd favorites. Fans were rocking,
rooting on the Florida boys.

This is great and unusual. In past years DeafDigest
Sports editor, as a younger man, attended deaf basketball
tournaments and has witnessed fan hostilities!

DeafDigest Sports dedicates this edition to a basketball
legend that departed us.

Dick Caswell, who had storied basketball careers at
Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf, Gallaudet and
District of Columbia Club for the Deaf, will never
be forgotten by DeafDigest Sports editor.

He was a whiz with these chest set shots during the
fifties and sixties while playing for his respective
clubs. He then became a long time high school/small
college basketball referee in the Washington, DC
area – often officiating big time high school
games.

Not only that, he moved up the basketball ranks
by becoming involved with the American Athletic
Association of the Deaf. He often described his
basketball chores as his “full time part-time job”
as he was already busy with his full time real job
on the Capitol Hill.

He has been inducted into the Gallaudet athletic
hall of fame.

random deafsports talk

Basketball legend Kobe Bryant lost his life in
a helicopter crash. The weather was so bad that
all other police helicopters were grounded.

In 1961, the Motor City Association of the
Deaf basketball team (from Detroit) was
enroute to a basketball game in Pittsburgh.
The team left in two passenger cars. The
weather was bad (heavy snowstorm). One car
arrived at the gym. The other car never made
it as all occupants were killed in a highway
crash. This was the worst tragedy in history
of Deaf Sports.

If weather is bad, stay home or proceed with
the travel?

This is the decision that sporting officials need to make.

DeafDigest Sports editor never forgot it. He was
attending classes at Gallaudet University and
word of the accident spread quickly across the
campus. It affected many people because of the
close-knit deaf community, everyone knowing
everyone.
