2015-2016 Recap

Tuesday, December 8, 2015

 

The Lady Bisons kicked off their season on the road last night travelling to Olean, NY to tip off against I.A.C league opponent, New Life Christian.  Suffice it to say, the game didn’t go exactly how the coaching staff had scripted it.  The Lady Bisons were missing 3 starters and had no subsitutes to give players a much needed rest.  Although our 2nd string played up to their potential, this was the first time that Samantha Galioto, Moontaha Shalbi, & Elise Watson had ever played at the varsity level.  There were some bright spots in the 47-15 loss, which included Sabina Bajgai (8th grader) scoring 10 points from the point guard position and Cameron Cole scoring 5 points & 7 rebounds.  It was a tough loss for the girls to swallow but hopefully we can get healthy soon and improve.  Our next game is this Thursday as the NYSSD in Rome rolls into town for ESDAA early season.

The Lady Bison’s were back on the hardwood yesterday for our home opener against ESDAA league opponent, the Trojans from NYSSD, Rome.  As was the case earlier this week, our team played shorthanded with two starters once again out of line-up.  That said, Sabina Bajgai & Cameron Cole put out a valiant effort offensively and by the end of the first quarter we had our opponent knotted up at 8 points apiece.  By half time, NYSSD was able to increase their lead by 5 baskets but our girls continued to work hard in an effort to make the game competitive.  As the game wore on, the Lady Bison’s found themselves in foul trouble. With a limited bench, some of rookies were forced to step into some unfamiliar roles.  Although both Elise Watson and Moontaha Shalbi scored their first career points as Lady Bison’s, the Trojans were able to take advantage of their inexperience and widen the gap too much for us to comeback.  Needless to say we are looking forward to potentially meeting up with NYSSD again later on the season with a full squad.

The Lady Bison’s went up against the Falcons from West Seneca Christian yesterday, who subsequently were the 2015 IAC league champions.  It was the first time that the Lady Bison’s had a full accompaniment of players to make substitutions when the starting 5 players needed a break in the action.  It was the first game this season that veteran starters (Jasmine Hollingsworth & Tracy White) were able to make it back onto the court.  Unfortunately, it took them the majority of the contest to “find their legs”  and the Falcons took full advantage.  We struggled mightily at both ends of the floor on offense and defense but it wasn’t for a lack of effort.  We are a young squad with a lack of experience and it was explained to our Bison’s that “Rome wasn’t built in a day”. If we stay the course through our trials and tribulations we will eventually come out on the other end that much stronger.  Please continue to support our Lady Bison’s and tell them to keep their chins up.

The Lady Bison’s played New Life Christian yesterday for the second and final time of the season in our home/away IAC series matchup.  Once again, our opponents size and experience was too much for our girls to compete with.  Despite the loss, point guard, Sabina Bajai showed no signs of giving up while Elise Watson scored in her second consecutive game while coming off the bench.  The Lady Bison’s have one more game against Walsh @ home at 3:30 next week Tuesday before we can re-group during vacation.  Please continue to support our program. Our record is 0-4.

The Lady Bison’s finished off the 2015 year with a solid effort against IAC opponent, Arch Bishop Walsh.  It  was the first game this season that our girls found themselves in a competitive match-up.  Although we didn’t come out with a victory it helped our squad see how they have been improving.  Cameron Cole and Jasmine Hollingsworth finally played the inside post game that the coaching staff has been looking for and they combined for 20 points.  Sabina Bajgai is improving at point guard by executing our offensive plays. Despite the loss, the Lady Bison’s were pleased with their effort but not content with the outcome.  Upon our arrival back from winter vacation we have back to back games against ESDAA opponents RSD and Lexington.  With your support and our dedication to “the process” we will only continue to move upwards.  Happy Holidays from the Lady Bison’s!

The Lady Bison’s hosted the Division I  Lexington School for the Deaf this past weekend.  In a stunning upset, the Bison’s knocked off the Blue Jays in front of a packed crowd by the score of 34-33 in overtime.  It was not only our teams 1st victory of the season but it was by far the best our team has played to this point.  With a solid week to prepare for our opponent, the girls were ready and focused on representing our school and the reputation of our smaller division II to the best of our ability!

The contest was very competitive. With a number of back & forth lead changes,  neither team was able to pull away by more than 4 points the entire game.  Cameron Cole led the Bison’s with a double-double (18 points & 20 rebounds) including a lay-up with 20 seconds left in regulation to tie the game at 30-30 and 2 made foul shots in over-time to give us a lead which we wouldn’t relinquish.  Jasmine Hollingsworth had her best offensive output of the season with 12 points, and Sabina Bajgai was able to bottle up and limit the production of Lexington’s best player just enough to help our squad pull out the victory. 

The coaching staff has preached to our team that this is not a process that will happen overnight.   If they “stay the course “and remaine focused on the task at hand, that the wins will eventually come.  That is not to say, that we are “tournament” ready by any stretch of the imagination.  The Lady Bison’s still have a long road ahead of us, but we took a VERY positive step forward this weekend.  Please wish the girls congrats on the win.  Our next game is tomorrow as we travel the “I-90” to Rochester to take on the ESDAA Division I champion Wildcats.  Wish us luck.

The Lady Bison’s made the long trek to Olean, NY to take on Arch Bishop Walsh in the finale of our IAC  home and away series this season.  In our previous match-up, the Lady Bison’s were just beginning to “come around” and made the game competitive.  Unfortunately, this time the Eagles made some adjustments and with a starter out of our line-up, the Lady Bison’s were unable to have the same kind of success.  Our opponent stifled us offensively and held us to just a mere 16 points.  The Lady Bison’s were out of sync the entire contest but at no point did they give up.  In fact, we were only outscored by 1 point in the 4th quarter and played strong defensively.  Cameron Cole finished the evening with her second “double double” (10 points & 14 rebounds).  Our next game is the last regular season IAC league game against 14’-15’ champions, West Seneca Christian.  The Lady Bison’s will continue to work hard in an effort to always improve.

The Lady Bison’s wrapped up a very difficult IAC league schedule last night by falling to the hands of West Seneca Christian.  We went into the game knowing that keeping things competitive against the Falcons was going to be a “tall task” but we were going to give it our best shot (pun intended).  Sabina Bajai and Elise Watson helped keep our opponent a little off balance by mixing in and rotating a variety of defenses while Jasmine Hollingsworth chipped in 10 points and Tracey White supplied a little bit of offense with a season high 4 points.  West Seneca Christian was still able to dominate us 38-16 but that was to be expected with such a young group of girls.  Our Lady Bison’s remained positive throughout the contest despite the loss.  We are back on the hardwood next week Monday when we travel to Olean NY to play a non-league game against Central Baptist.  Please continue to support our Lady Bison’s.

The Lady Bison’s made their last regular season trip down to the southern tier to match-up against Central Baptist. It was a year ago that the Lions beat us pretty badly by over 40 points and suffice it to say that we as a team were determined to not allow that to happen again.  As expected, our opponent keyed in pretty quickly to our main offensive threats and did their best to prevent those girls from contributing points.  However, Tracy White and Sabina Bajgai stepped up their production and combined for 17 points.  With a starter out of our line-up, it limited the styles of defense we were able to play but Moontaha Shalbi and Samantha Galioto filled in nicely.  Unfortunately, we didn’t come out as the victor but we kept the game competitive and only lost by 7points.  In the coaching staffs opinion, it was believed that we earned a new level of respect from the Lions this year and it will be an interesting match-up for the next few years as both squads seem to be young and developing.  Our next match-up isn’t until next week so it will be good for the Lady Bison’s to re-visit the drawing board and sharpen things up.

Aside from our ESDAA tournament next weekend and the IAC playoffs, last night was our final regular season game.  We played host to the Panthers from Academy of Aurora.  Going into the contest we knew that our opponent was playing at a much higher level than we were capable of with such a young squad.  That said,  it was a great opportunity for us to attempt to run through all of our schemes & plays against a better team and see what worked and if there were any glaring problems.  It also gave us the chance for our bench players to get much needed experience in case their services are called upon next weekend at the tournament.   Nyjah Jackson played her first full game (all 4 quarters) and tallied 5 rebounds along with a blocked shot.  Sabina Bajgai , Tracy White, and Elise Watson were forced to cover a lot of floor yesterday with some players out of the line-up. You could see that although they were exhausted because of the lack of substitutes, their confidence in themselves and each other was growing with each quarter.  Although the contest was never really close on the scoreboard, the coaching staff commended our team for playing a full 32 minutes without giving up.  After the game we explained to the team that with that same kind of effort and a full accompaniment of players, no matter what the outcome in Rome, NY, we will be proud of them.
