Deaf Hoosiers topple Patriots

BROWNSBURG — After being bounced out of postseason play last year by the Indiana Deaf Hoosiers, the Bethesda girls’ basketball team hosted a regular season rematch Thursday night. Unfortunately, the outcome left the Patriots again searching for answers as they fell, 54-27.

The biggest problem for the Patriots was their shooting. As a team, Bethesda shot a paltry 13 of 62 from the field and that affected every other part of the Patriots’ game, coach Wayne Leichty said.

“Shots just weren’t falling for us,” he said. “If we don’t hit our first few shots, it seems to have a domino effect. They just weren’t falling and when that happens a lot, they lose focus and watch the shot instead of going for the rebound. It was a snowball effect where our girls started getting disappointed and they lacked the mindset of ‘Hey, I’m ready for the next play and am good to go again.’ That just eats us alive and led to (Indiana Deaf) scoring some easier buckets.”

Also hurting Bethesda was the inside play of the Deaf Hoosiers’ Jasmine Jeter and Giuletta Maucere. The pair dominated each side of the paint early on and, despite the Patriots’ best efforts, each had impressive games.

Jeter finished with a double-double, scoring 22 points and pulling down 16 rebounds. Maucere dropped in seven while collecting eight rebounds.

“Their big girls did a good job with ball control in the middle,” Leichty said. “We tried to focus on those so we would be ready for them because we knew that they’d be tough”

Indiana Deaf jumped out to a 13-3 first quarter lead, prompting Leichty to alter his defensive strategy.

“It just ended up that we had to change the tempo of the game,” he said. “I didn’t think we were responding really well and didn’t see the energy. I thought a press would cause some turnovers and transition buckets to get back into the game. I just wanted to change the pace for us because I think we’re a little bit stronger in a transition game than in half-court sets.”
