This beautiful design play by Westchester Country Day School in North Carolina.

  • And I thought a 94-1 girls basketball score not too long ago was bad. Recently there was a 100-0 girls basketball score in Texas. The winning team, The Covenant School, wants to forfeit the win, obviously feeling shame in the inflated score (they were up 59-0 at half). One parent at the game claims the winning team continued to press and shoot three-pointers late in the game, and that fans — even an assistant coach — were cheering to get to 100 points.

    The losing team, Dallas Academy, only has 20 girls in high school, eight of which are on the team. “The academy boasts of its small class sizes and specializes in teaching students struggling with ‘learning differences,’ such as short attention spans or dyslexia.” Due to the loss, Dallas Academy will be canceling its girls basketball program for the rest of the season.

  • You think UW committed some recruiting violations? Read this NY Times story about the recruiting experiences of a blue chip recruit from Texas. Parties, drugs, alcohol and more.

  • A Kentucky football coach has been charged with reckless homicide in the death of one of his players. Practice during a 94-degree Louisville day gave the offensive lineman a temperature of 107 before he died.

  • Anyone that might have thought racism in this country would take a back seat following the inauguration of Barack Obama should read this story regarding racist behavior at a California basketball game.
