The bus carrying the Cal State Northridge men's basketball team rolled through a late Southern California evening, the players bobbing their heads to the music coming through their headphones.

Michael Lizarraga just stared straight ahead, a sad look on his face.

"What's up? What's wrong?" teammate Willie Galick asked.

"I wish I could do that," the 6-foot-7 forward answered.

"Do what?" Galick wondered.

Lizarraga pointed to his teammates bobbing and weaving to the music from their headphones.

"That."

Galick smiles wistfully as he remembers the moment.

"It was one of those situations where I didn't even know what to say or how to answer," Galick said. "What do you say?"

Michael Lizarraga, you see, has been deaf since birth.

Very good read, went to a few of his games this year and he has played well. He just needs more minutes
