    In California basketball, a high school coach for Arroyo Valley High got suspended because his team beat the Bloomington High basketball team with a score of 161-2. 

    Arroyo's coach, Michael Anderson, commented saying that he did bench all of his starters before starting the second half of the game, but he didn't expect for the other team to be that freaking bad.  Needless to say, he's being suspended for a few games for "un-sportsman" like conduct.

    Meanwhile, the Bloomington high school coach, Dale Chung, commented saying that he thinks nobody should feel bad for his team, but rather they should be feeling sorry for Michael's team.  Why does he say this?  Chung says unlike Michael's team, he teaches his girls the 'RIGHT" way to play basketball.  what are your thoughts on this?

    By the way, here's the article to people's magazine that goes into deeper detail about this issue:

    Seriously, it's stories like this that make me ASHAMED to call myself an American.

    I'm all about keeping things classy but if he benched his best players and (presumably) the team wasn't celebrating obnoxiously after every point, what else were they supposed to do?

    Don't play sports if you can't handle losing badly. I played soccer for 15 years and we got absolutely destroyed some games. It happens. I'd rather get destroyed than feel like people were playing it down to spare my feelings.

    I think the only option was to tell the players to not put in any effort and I don't think that sends a great message, nor do I think anyone wants to be on the receiving end of that (someone not putting effort into beating you in a game sort of reminds me of how parents play with toddlers).

    If it's an ongoing issue perhaps they should implement a mercy rule and then use the rest of the time to mix up the teams and scrimmage. That would probably be more fun for everyone.

    in National League in UK you only have 1 or 2 top teams, no competition within the girls the level is really low, when my daughter use to play, their team use to win 100-16 ridic. scores so, the coach didn't let the other team get humiliated at all, bench use to play now and then the good plays  had to dribble with weak hand, eg right handers dribble with left, not allowed to shoot, cant drive, no bouncing, limits were put on, if both coaches talk to each other during game they can come to some sort of compromise if they can see how the game is going, you do not need to wait till half time, you can tell from 1st quarter etc.
