The 1957 Little Rock Association of the Deaf won
the national deaf basketball tournament.

This team earned a special distinction never again
to be duplicated.

The officials of the American Athletic Association
of the Deaf agreed to have this team represent
USA.

After 1957, the USA Deaflympics basketball team
players were the all-stars, the best USA had
to offer.

The Little Rock team was a club, not a team of
all-stars.
