Now Covenant may finally be off the sportsmanship hook, thanks to an even more absurd act of poor sportsmanship in Indiana. On Tuesday night, Bloomington (Ind.) South High’s girls basketball squad topped Arlington (Ind.) High’s team by a score of 107-2.
According to the Indianapolis Star, Arlington hit a solitary free throw in both the second and third period. All the rest of the scoring came from Bloomington South, with the team’s coach encouraging his players to keep shooting as the points piled up.
“I didn’t tell my girls to stop shooting because that would have been more embarrassing [to Arlington],” Bloomington South coach Larry Winters told the Star. “We were not trying to embarrass them or run up the score.”
