USADB hall of fame inductee little-known facts

They are the newest inductees

Darnell Woods – never played basketball in high school;
was a football star; after the Gallaudet football season,
he walked on the basketball team and made a big impact

Ron Emerson – played one season of college basketball
at Prairie View A&M and was immediately a fan favorite
despite playing very little. When games were nearly over,
fans screamed and clamored for the coach to play Ron.
The coach wouldn’t, but the fans screamed louder,
forcing the coach to give up and play Ron. He assisted
with the Gallaudet basketball team one season

Hubert Anderson – pulled off a feat that is impossible
for today’s coaches to duplicate – coaching the
Gallaudet team and the Washington Diplomats deaf club
team at the same time. Needless to say, the Diplomats
was considered Gallaudet’s unofficial farm team!
As a Gallaudet prep, he averaged 29 points a game with the
prep basketball team.

Michael Stultz – it it was impossible to separate him
from David Hamilton; they played together for years;
it was Stultz that made Hamilton look great – and
also it was Hamilton that made Stultz look great.
On these fast breaks, it was always either Hamilton
with the ball and Stultz at the wings – or -
Stultz with the ball and Hamilton at the wings -
very interchangeable and it led to many uncontested
layups.

Our final regular season game ended up in a disappointing loss with
Walatowa cruising to a win. Walatowa led at the half 30 – 9. We played
with much better defense in the second half limiting them to 20 points.

steals, and a block. Freshman Victoria Baca had 6 rebounds, 3 steals, 2

steals, 2 points, and a rebound. Senior Sherrena Bob came up big on the
glass earning 9 rebounds. 8th grader Olivia Haley saw a lot of action on
the court and earned herself a rebound.

Record 5 – 15
Coaches Roderick and Katie

V Boys (2/16)
NMSD 59
Walatowa 58

What an incredible game! In the 4th quarter, with 5 seconds left, 
Walatowa made a free throw which took them up by one point.  Without any
time outs left, Bruce Brewer Jr dribbled down the court and passed the
ball to Jonathan Garcia who then decided to drive to the basket. Sure
enough, Walatowa fouled on Jonathan RIGHT before the buzzer to end the
game went off. Jonathan went to the free throw line and he looked so
confident. He made both free throws, both hitting nothing but net.  Our
boys ran to Jonathan and celebrated the fact that we broke the school
record with 19 wins!  Leo and I want to say hats off to our boys for
believing that the game is not over until the clock runs out.   Senior
Jonathan got 23 points and Junior Deven Thompson made 17 points.

See you this coming Saturday for the District Championship game, please
share this with other NMSD alumni, family, and friends!

Clarification regarding district title and district championship…  we
have the district title which means we have an automatic bid in the state
tournament because of our first place rank in District 1A standings.  We
do not have the District championship yet, but we are the number 1 seed 
for the district basketball playoffs, We will need to win the district
championship game to be considered district champions and bring the
DISTRICT CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHY home!  So please come this Saturday and cheer
our team on.

Next game:  District championship game, Saturday, February 24th @ NMSD @ 5
pm (see admission info below)
Overall record 19-4
District record 7-1
