U of Kentucky basketball’s #1 fan

part of newspaper story

Kentucky By Heart: Nobody is ‘crazier about the ‘Cats’
than long-time sports writer Jamie Vaught

author on books on U of KY basketball, in addition
to being a sports reporter for newspapers and other
publications.

elite deaf athlete, from yesterday

yesterday’s posting:

elite deaf basketball player

What has become of Kazuma Tsuya, Japan, who was the
talk of the U-21 world deaf basketball championships
in 2017?

Do not now. His latest update is 2018. None since then.

He is 6’2 tall.

As a rule, pro teams do not like to recruit short players.

They want players that are tall, 6-5 and 6-6 and up.

Maybe that is what is holding him back?

today’s posting:
it was learned from a basketball fan that follows
basketball everywhere that Kazuma Tsuya, Japan,
sprained his ankle this past summer, prior to
the 2019 World Championships in Poland. He
did not travel with the team to that championship
event.

Random DeafSports thoughts

re Jamie Vaught, covering U of KY basketball,
just ask him a question and see if he can
answer it correctly.

Question:
Did U of KY ever have a deaf basketball player?

Response:
two of them – Houston Nutt who played a season for
Adolph Rupp in the early fifties and in recent
seasons, there was a hard of hearing player, but
sorry, DeafDigest Sports editor forgot his name.
