American School for the Deaf Varsity Boys basketball team traveled to
Lexington School for the Deaf. American remains without 2 starters but we
played pretty good and share the basketball. 39-39 tied with 3.0 seconds
left. American Coach Brooks called timeout and designed for last seconds
plays then ran this baseline out of bounds play- Jarmal Puryear was wide
open and sinks beater buzzer to win game. The final was 41-39.

Record 12-3

Missouri girls’ basketball

Today we played the Wisconsin School for the Deaf Lady Firebirds. We lost
the game 36-38 making our record 2-14. It was a tough game. We were up
15-6 at the end of first quarter. We did everything right and forced
Wisconsin to make mistakes. Second quarter, however, they came back and we
were only leading by a basket at halftime. We played well in third quarter
but got into some foul trouble. We got a comfortable lead and at the end
of third quarter it was 33-20. Delanzia Hayes fouled out with 6:59 left in
the game leaving us playing 4 on 5. We were able to hold them but at 4:00
Melissa Davis then fouled out. We did the best we could playing 3 on 5 but
it was difficult. Wisconsin slowly caught up to us making the winning
basket at 17.3 seconds. We played our hearts out but ultimately, having
only five players proved to be detrimental. Wisconsin had a long bench and
was able to swap out players when we weren’t. While we did make mistakes,
I couldn’t ask a single thing more fro
m any of my players. It took us getting down to three players for
Wisconsin to beat us on the floor. I can’t complain! Even with five
players, we have been competition to every team we’ve played. We work hard
but we make sure the other team is, too. It was extremely emotional today
and with good reason. But I told the girls we need to focus on the
positives. Elizabeth Harrison achieved her fifth double-double (third in a
row) today with 11 points and 14 (over 50% of the total) rebounds. Every
player scored. Even playing four on five we were able to hold Wisconsin
from scoring. We never gave up. Despite exhaustion, fatigue, injuries, and
sickness, we kept playing. Of all sixteen games so far this season, this
is the first time having only five players really hurt us. We proved to
every single team we’ve played that just because we’re small, doesn’t mean
we go down easy. I know I say this all the time but I truly could not be
prouder of this team. This will surely be a team I will never forget. We
have another game on Monday February 13 against Fulton St. Alban’s at 4:30
pm.
