stmarysWestern New York Maritime Charter JV 51 St. Mary's 49

The Bison took on Maritime JV yesterday afternoon in Gallagher Gym. This was a last minute addition to our schedule due to several cancelled games this season because of the weather. Maritime had availability in their schedule and as a community partner and supporter of St. Mary’s was gracious enough to play us.

Maritime had size and speed. They brought a fast paced tempo to the floor and they proved to be a great match up for the Bison. Each team jumped out with pressure and pushed the ball up the court. Maritime had the lead after the first eight minutes, 15-7. The Bison came out and scored 25 points in the second quarter and went into the locker room at halftime up by a score of 25-24.

The start of the third quarter was rough for the Bison and Maritime took advantage of that. The Bison chipped away at the deficit they were in and traded baskets with Maritime for most of the fourth quarter. In a game that could have been won by either team, Maritime walked away the victor, 51-49. Nick Barrus lead all players with 19 points and seven assists. Christian Lawrence had 10 points and nine rebounds. Kassim Kassim had eight points while Ryan Brzezinksi and Isa Habeeb each had six points. (Contributed by Athletic Director Jim Carmody)

Fanwood has special tribute for legendary basketball player Carl Lorello

Lexington visited our home territory as we hosted the second match of the season. Also, we had a special ceremony for alumni and former Fanwood basketball player Carl Lorello as he passed away last week. Carl is one of more well known athletes in Deaf sport, especially in basketball. He helped Fanwood win its first ever ESDAA championship in 1949 during his senior year. Today, his record in scoring still stands with 2,351 points from 1945 to 1949. Carl’s number 10 will be retired and join Carl Royce's retired number, 30. His family members were here as well. This was very emotional for all of Fanwood community. At the start of the game, Carl's son, Steven Lorello, did the tip-off to start the game in honor of his father's legacy.

The Golden Tornadoes were very emotional and ready to play hard as we opened the game with a 13-0 run. At halftime, Lexington slowly climbed back to make it a close game, 20-15 as Jaykuss Figueroa got in foul trouble with four and was forced to sit on the bench for the entire third quarter as Lexington finally grabbed the lead with a 17-2 making 34-22 in their favor.

Before the start of the fourth quarter, I told the boys, next eight minutes is only our chance to get our lead back and remind them that Carl Lorello will be always watching us. I put Jaykuss Figueroa back in the game as he and Christian Gonzalez pushed us back into the game and we finally got the lead back with three minutes remaining in the game at 37-36 and never look back. We finished the game with a 26-7 run and this win is for Carl Lorello. Jaykuss Figueroa led the team with 20 points on 71% shooting. Alnord Deski grabbed 10 rebounds and Joshua Crawford-Ponder had season-high four blocks. (Contributed by Head Coach Nicolas Tegni)

Before the game, our team assumed that we would have an easy time with league foe Contra Costa Christian because we beat teams by 25, who in turn beat them by 25 too. CCC showed up ready to play the top team in the league and held our offense in check as CSD shot only 26% from the field.

Fortunately, our defense saved the game as we held CCC to five points in the second and third quarters. They made a late 8-0 run in the last three minutes of the fourth quarter to make the game interesting but ran out of time.

Overall CSD had 32 points on 26% shooting, 39 rebounds, 9 assists, 12 steals, and 3 blocks. The Eagles are now 11-6 (2-1 Bay Counties League) with 9 games remaining on the season schedule. (Contributed by Head Coach Joshua Weinstock)

fremontFremont Christian 39 Fremont 37

Our second league matchup, and first game of 2018 was a difficult game for our team. We had a fast start to a big 27-15 halftime lead and were confident heading into the second half as we defeated Fremont Christian 49-27 earlier this season at the CSD Classic tournament.

However the second half was a different game as the players lost focus on the offensive and defensive side of the ball. The team may have been looking ahead to the upcoming Clerc Classic Basketball tournament, and forgot to handle business in this game.

A good lesson learned for our team. All the credit to Fremont Christian for playing hard in the second half and not giving up. We will play them again on January 18 for the third time this season on their home court. Fremont Christian snapped our 9-game winning streak.
