American 24 Rhode Island 13

rhode-islandRhode Island - Our Lady Roosters played American School for the Deaf's girls basketball team for the second time in six days, and we were looking to improve upon our performance from last weekend. Our girls struggled to contain ASD's one-girl attack in the first quarter as we got outscored 11-0 before finally getting on the scoreboard with four points to end the first quarter.

We slowly started to eat away at their lead, coming as close as four points in the third quarter before ASD's primary ball handler came on fire again and scored 10 of her game-high 22 points in the last 10 minutes of the game. RISD lost our scoring touch and struggled to maintain our offensive tempo in the fourth quarter as ASD won the game by the final score of 26-13.

The coaches saw some positive things and we are glad our girls improved compared to last weekend. We will next participate in the MKSD Basketball Tip-Off Tournament against three other ESDAA Division 2 schools which will be a good preview of the ESDAA Tournament next February.
