Gallaudet men’s basketball

GU turns it over to Baruch in second half, lose 80-76

NEW YORK – The press defense got to Gallaudet University here Saturday as
it dropped an 80-76 decision to Baruch College in a non-conference men’s
basketball game at the ARC Arena.

Gallaudet (0-5) led by seven points, 47-40, at the 13:50 mark in the
second half before Baruch (3-1) went on a 12-0 run to take the lead for
good.

The Bison turned the ball over 15 times in the second half with 10 of
those turnovers coming in the final 13 minutes. Baruch scored 26 points
off those 15 second-half turnovers. Baruch outscored GU, 48-41, in the
second half as 54 percent of the Bearcats’ points were scored off Bison
turnovers.

Overall, Gallaudet coughed up the ball 24 times to Baruch, who scored 38
points off those turnovers.

Senior guard Noah Valencia (Riverside, Calif.) scored 16 of his game-high
20 points in the second half as he made 4 of 5 shots from 3-point range.
Junior guard Preston Kelly (Fishers, Ind.) netted 15 points, seven
rebounds and six assists in the loss. Sophomore forward Matt Sherman
(Angora, Minn.) was the third Bison in double-digits with 10 points and
seven rebounds.

Texas football

We lost to The Woodlands Christian Academy 49-21. I am proud of how our
boys played. We scored 21 points against an undefeated team, the highest
points TWCA have allowed this season. And it is Woodlands’ first time
letting a  team produce more than 200 rushing yards.

random deafsports talk

It would have been great if Gallaudet defeated Baruch College
in men’s basketball, but it was not to be.

Baruch College was named after financier and statesman Bernard M. Baruch
who passed away in 1965.

He was late deafened, and always wore a hearing aid throughout his
life.

Legend was that he played baseball for City College (CCNY) and his
team got into a brawl with an opposing team. During the brawl, he
was clubbed on his head by a bat – causing him life-long deafness!

Do not know if this legend was true or fiction, but it was a fact
that he was late-deafened.

If we read the newspapers about these wealthy investors – George
Soros, Warren Buffett and others, then Baruch was it during his time.
