Gallaudet women’s basketball

Bison dispatch Patriots in largest home win of the season

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University’s women’s basketball team collected
a 91-47 win against University of Valley Forge in a non-conference game
here Saturday in the Field House on Padden Court.

Gallaudet (10-13) came out of the gates on fire and played at a high level
as its energy levels dictated the tempo of the game against Valley Forge
(10-8). GU led from start-to-finish and scored over 21 points in every
quarter. The Bison took a 46-18 lead into halftime and outscored the
Patriots in the second half, 45-29.

Junior guard/forward Hannah Neild  (Litchfield, N.H.) finished with a
game-high 31 points as she made 12 of 20 shots from the field and went
4-for-7 from three-point range. She added nine assists, six steals, three
blocks and three rebounds. Freshman guard Emelia Beldon (Frederick, Md.)
matched Neild with a season-high nine assists as she ripped down eight
boards and made four steals.

Junior guard Sabina Shysh (Tucson, Ariz.) spun heads and sunk shots as she
finished with a career-high 29 points, seven assists, five rebounds and
five steals. Senior forward Kelsey Hudson (Blissfield, Mich.) recorded the
only double-double of the game with 11 points and a game-high 13 rebounds.

The energy continued when senior forward Lawjen Ashmore (Fairbanks,
Alaska) entered off the bench and played aggressive defense. Ashmore
finished the game with nine rebounds, four steals and six points.

Gallaudet men’s basketball

Gallaudet fends off late charge by Valley Forge to win, 61-60

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University’s men’s basketball team eked out a
61-60 victory over University of Valley Forge here Saturday in a
non-conference game in the Field House on Padden Court.

Gallaudet (8-15) held off a charging Valley Forge (3-14) squad, who
outscored the Bison 36-27 in the second half, and had a chance to win the
game in the waning seconds.

The Patriots stepped out of bounds with three seconds left to turn the
ball over to the Bison. Valley Forge fouled sophomore guard Noah Valencia
(Riverside, Calif.), who missed the 1-and-1 attempt at the free throw
line. The Patriots’ Arthur Wilborn (15 points, 13 rebounds) gathered the
defensive rebound and chucked the ball the distance of the court but
missed the basket as time expired.

GU celebrated its fifth win at home this season as the Bison turn their
attention back to conference play next week.

Valencia finished with 14 points, six assists, four rebounds and two
steals. Senior forward Andy Cruz (Bronx, N.Y.) chipped in 12 points, six
rebounds, three blocks and two steals while sophomore Trace Martin
(Shingle Springs, Calif.) was the third Bison in double figures with 10
points.

Gallaudet coach Kevin Kovacs went to his bench, early and often, as he
played 11 players who logged seven or more minutes in the game. Freshman
Wilford Troup (Snellville, Ga.) scored a career best seven points while
juniors Cody Crace (Westfield, Ind.) and Jawaun Jackson (Downey, Calif.)
added six points off the bench.

Martin drained a buzzer-beater three-pointer, right before the end of the
first half, as Valencia found Martin on the left side of the arc. Martin
threw up an off-balance shot as time expired and sent Gallaudet into the
locker room up 34-24.

deaf pro tennis player Duck Hee Lee

part of newspaper posting

Hearing impairment no hindrance for Lee

South Korea’s Duckhee Lee was born deaf but that hasn’t stopped him from
adjusting to the tough grind of professional tennis.

Lee’s best performance was when he reached the final of the Kaohsiung
ATP Challenger in 2016, losing to country-mate Hyeon Chung.  On Chung, who
became the first South Korean to enter the semifinals of a Grand Slam  —
the 2018 Australian Open — Lee said he has known Chung from the
elementary school. “I am trying to play catch-up now,” said Lee,
ranked 207 in the world.

Lee said he is young, has a lot of opportunities to learn and travel to
gauge his strengths. His aim is to get back to his best-ever ranking of
130 he achieved in last year. “I want to do well in Majors sooner than
later,” he said.

comment by Hope Solo (not deaf)

she was campaigning for the presidency of the
US Soccer Federation but did not win.

She said:
“I believe the Federation has lost its way, and forgotten its
fundamental obligation, as a national governing body, to develop the sport
for all. Our youth, our adults, our recreational players, our futsal
teams, our Paralympic athletes, and our U.S. deaf team. Everyone,” Solo
said.

note:
DeafDigest Sports editor thinks it was the first time a candidate,
for presidency of any athletic federation, mentioned the deaf.

Hope did not get too many votes for one reason – she’s very
unpopular, though she was a great goalie.
