Noah Valencia – part of newspaper story

INLAND SCORING RECORD

The Inland area single-game boys basketball scoring record was unchanged
for 52 years before CSDR’s Noah Valencia broke it in December of 2015.
Valencia held the mark for less than a year when LiAngelo Ball broke it in
November. LaMelo Ball’s performance Tuesday night may have secured the
mark for another 50 years.

Here’s the record’s progression.

92 — LaMelo Ball, Chino Hills vs. Los Osos, Feb. 8, 2017.

72 — Matthew Bradley, San Bernardino, vs. Rubidoux, Jan. 11, 2017.

72 — LiAngelo Ball, Chino Hills, vs. Rancho Christian, Nov. 30, 2016.

71 — Noah Valencia, Calif. School for the Deaf, Riverside, vs. Baker,
Dec. 4, 2015.

70 — Tony Dean, Upland Academy vs. Montclair Prep, 1963.

Marie Philip boys’ basketball

HISTORY MADE IN SCHWAB ATHLETIC CENTER AT TLC

Marie Philip School (MPS) Galloping Ghosts hosted league opponent, Boston
University Academy (BUA) for a varsity boys basketball game on Wednesday,
Feb. 8, 2017.  Both teams played great and battled all the way to the end
of the game.  MPS trailed most of the game, but like the New England
Patriots on Sunday, the team made a comeback late in the second half. Both
teams had several scoring opportunities to win the game and the Galloping
Ghosts ended up edging out BUA by one point, 53 to 52.

With the Ghosts reigning victorius, history was on the court of the Schwab
Athletic Center! The win over BUA marked Head Coach John Monahan’s 250th
win in his coaching career at MPS.    He has coached MPS/TLC basketball
teams for 20 years and Athletic Director David Del Pizzo commented, “It
was amazing to witness and the MPS community at The Learning Center for
the Deaf is in awe of this milestone.”

Monahan has cemented his legacy as head coach for MPS and is the longest
tenured coach at the school.  Del Pizzo adds, “We are honored to have him
as the coach for this wonderful school and we look forward to seeing him
reach for his next milestone!”

Junior Dylan Christoffels led the team with 19 points, 9 rebounds, 5
assists and 1 steal

Junior Jorge Lara had 13 points

Sophomore Kacey Monahan had 10 points, 11 rebounds, 6 assists and 1 block

Record: 14-1

RISD Girls Basketball*

This game was cancelled due to a mistake on Sophia Academy’s part in
scheduling games – they apparently had another school scheduled to play
today. RISD Girls had an intrasquad scrimmage today instead.

*RISD Girls Basketball Record:* 3-11
*Next Game:* Friday, February 10th @ Times Square Academy (4:00 P.M.)

*RISD Boys Basketball*

Rhode Island School for the Deaf boys basketball team traveled to Warren,
RI to take on Highlander Charter School in Coastal Prep League play. Last
time we played them, we suffered a 39-point defeat back in early December
-
so we were looking to show how much we had improved since then despite
only
having five eligible players. The first half ended up being very
competitive and culminated in Highlander holding a 9-point halftime lead.
Fatigue caught up to us in the second half as Highlander pulled away
through turnovers and fast breaks en route to a 58-30 victory. We still
commend our players for their effort and not giving up the whole game. We
will wrap up CPL play this Friday at home against St. Andrew’s.

RISD – 16  14  – 30
HCS -  25  33  – 58

*RISD*
Ariel Gonzalez – 21 Points
Timothy Jallah – 6 Points
Jayden Elias – 3 Points

*RISD Boys Basketball Record:* 1-20 (0-12 CPL)
*Next Game:* Friday, February 10th vs. St. Andrew’s (4:00 P.M.)
