floridaFlorida 62 Calvary Christian 55

I'm not sure how to open up this game recap, so I'm gonna pay homage to the late Keith Jackson, "WHOOOOOOOOAAAAAA NELLIE!". The boys played harmoniously once again and toppled Calvary Christian 62-55 in a wild game at Settles Gym.

Coming into this game, we knew Calvary was a great team. They annihiliated all of our common opponents including a team we just lost to by 25 last week. But our boys were up to the task and more. I'm going to continue with the dinner table analogy from last night and say that we carved up their press for easy baskets in the beginning. That forced them to lay back and play honest defense.

That threw us off guard a little bit as we only scored nine points in the second quarter. In the second half we started hot and stayed that way to score 18 and 19 points in the third and fourth quarters.

The best part of the game came in the end with five seconds left when they were playing tight man-to-man defense and Wallace Burrell executed a perfect screen to spring Quintin Galpine loose and Samy Vital hit him in stride towards the basket and Quintin finished with a thunderous dunk! The gym went crazy and we nearly brought down the roof. (Contributed by Head Coach Eric LeFors)

marie-philipMarie Philip 51 Waring School 39

Marie Philip School Galloping Ghosts Varsity Basketball team hosted a league contest against Waring School. We had beat them two days ago at Waring and were playing tonight for rescheduled game due to game cancellation a few weeks ago. This would be our third straight game in three days.

We knew this game was going to be a battle as we were vying for a spot in league play-off and Waring was coming off with an upset win over Chapel Hill Chauncy Hall yesterday.

We got off to a good start in the first half, however we got careless with turnovers, and foul troubles. Waring kept crawling back to stay close to us. One of their players was having a hot game, scoring 14 of the team's 18 first half points. We were up at half time with the score, 23-18.

In the second half, Waring got off to a good start so we knew this was going to be another battle. We got Waring into foul trouble and attacked the basket to lead by eight. Waring's best player continued to have hot game and made key baskets to pull within two. Two of our players got into foul troubles so we made some defensive adjustments and were able to contain their best player. Kacey Monahan and Kyle Florio made key baskets including three-pointers to extend the lead. We won the game, 51-39. (Contributed by Athletic Director David Del Pizzo)

rhode-islandLincoln School 26 Rhode Island 24

Our RISD girls' basketball team traveled to Lincoln School to play the first basketball game between these two schools. This turned out to be one of the most competitive game our girls have had. We were barely hanging on to a 14-12 halftime lead. In the second half, our girls woke up and we were able to pull away, holding a 10-point lead at one point. Fatigue set in on our girls and we slowly started to allow the lead to slip away and would ultimately lose on a buzzer-beating layup by Lincoln School's leading scorer who finished with 14 points.

The coaches hope that this game will serve as a good stepping stone for our girls as it shows all of our starters were able to score, and with a lead, we must protect it, not cruise toward the end of the game. Only two games left for us before we travel to Delaware for the 2018 ESDAA Division 2 tournament. (Contributed by Athletic Director Nathan Engel)

new-mexicoNew Mexico 35 Wagon Mound 18

The Roadrunners broke their three-game losing streak with a good performance at Wagon Mound. We started off not doing a great job on the defensive side, being down at the end of the first quarter with Wagon Mound leading 9-8. During the second quarter, we did a great job shutting them down and not letting them score a point, while we went off on a 10 point-quarter. At the half, we were leading 18-9. However, the team was not satisfied with their performance and knew that they could play better. We finished the third quarter with a 14-point performance to Wagon Mound’s 6 and cruised to a win.

Sophomore Lindsay Hand had a double-double with 18 rebounds, 16 points, and two blocks. Freshman Victoria Baca with her quick hands contributed to the team with 10 points, five steals, and two rebounds. Sophomore Mya Malone continued her dominance on the board with 15 rebounds, two steals, and a block and a point a piece. Sophomore Andrea Leyba’s shooting woes continued, however, she scored a basket, had an assist, one steal, and a rebound. Her presence on the court did not show on the stat sheet, but her energy and positive demeanor was much needed for the team. 8th grader Sophia Martinez, continues to prove to the team that she is a valuable asset and a force to be reckoned with when asked to step in. Senior Sherrena Bob, who did a fantastic job preventing second chance points on the defensive side by doing all the little things such as; boxing out and challenging the shooter, helped the team with two points, three rebounds, and an assist. Senior guard, Antonia Martinez, who unfortunately had a brief injury scare, was able to contribute to the team with her two points, one rebound, and a block before her night was cut short.

New Mexico School for the Deaf's hunger to win pays off

By James Barron

new-mexicoLetty Perez saw a bright future.

She just had to sell the rest of the New Mexico School for the Deaf Roadrunners on it.

When Perez took over as head boys basketball coach in 2015, she inherited a group of mainly freshmen and eighth-graders that had great potential and she let them know it. After all, she saw most of them growing up at the boarding school that houses students from kindergarten to high school as the school’s athletic director, girls basketball coach and teacher.

Tuesday: Defeated Geneva Boerne 53-24.
Wednesday: Defeated San Marcos Academy 56-6 (halftime score was 44-2).

We have our final game of the regular season on Monday (rescheduled game) with Concordia then we begin our 3-game District playoffs. This will determine which of the top four teams will advance to the 4A state playoffs from our district.

Sophia Academy had a strong duo, a point guard and a center who did most of the work for their team, scoring 30 of 38 team points. Our girls struggled to stop these two consistently.

This must have been how Michelangelo felt when he stepped back and took a look at his finished Sistine Chapel ceiling. Our boys played a perfect game! The way we broke their press and executed in transition was a sight to behold! I'm really proud of the way they played tonight.

Duval Charter beat us earlier this year by 14 points on the strength of their tenacious press. Tonight, we forced them to abandon their press in the second half when we were like a hot knife cutting through butter.

And to top it all off, it was our first game in our own Settles Gym since December 11th (51 days). The crowd came to check out the Mason Dixon champions, and we most certainly gave them what they were hoping to see.

Yahir Rodriquez was unbelievable in the first half with 22 points, 16 of them coming in the first quarter. He finished with 31 points. His teammates knew he was hot and had no qualms feedling him the ball. That was such unselfish play and I told Yahir that he owes 'em all dinner!

There were a lot of great opportunities for our girls to work on basic skills and plays that they’ll need for next week and inevitably it led to their success on the court. Cami Cole came out strong earning 11 rebounds and 22 points. Kioney Alvira-Jurado led the team as point guard making sure everyone got their hands on the ball and earning 11 rebounds and eight points of her own. Emma Foster and Julia Bronneberg were key in our defense and each earned their first points of the season with two points each. (Contributed by Head Coach Wendy Chuba)

stmarysCentral Baptist 34 St. Mary's 21

On Monday night, the Lady Bison faced off against Central Baptist for the second time this year. Our ladies played with a lot of grace under pressure when the elbows came flying their way. Not one of our girls let the other team’s dirty playing affect their game, and even though they fell 34-21, it was a vast improvement over their first encounter.

With Cami Cole finally being cleared to play, the girls had another power player thrown in the mix to help out under the basket. She racked up 12 points for the Bison while Kioney Alvira-Juardo helped out with another nine. Julia Bronneberg made herself comfortable on the low block taking on girls almost twice her size and pulling down six of her own rebounds. The team as a unit worked very well together and is getting comfortable in some of their new positions. (Contributed by Head Coach Wendy Chuba)
