Michael Lizarraga is a very singular basketball player. The Matador is deaf, so Braswell needs some assistance when he wants to get a point across to him. That’s where Lizarraga’s sign-language assistant comes in.

Just now Braswell wanted to yell at him a little and he had the lady signal something at him. It wasn’t exactly the same as if the coach was giving him the message, but it works. He scored on a layup following the exchange.

It’s halftime here. Matadors lead 35-22. Tresvant’s got the hot hand.
