I have been watching high school sports for more than three decades, yet the story of 100-0 basketball game took the cake for me. Talk about running it up!
In case you haven't heard - Dallas Covenant beat Dallas Academy 100-0 in a recent TAPPS girls game.
The sad part is that, according to reports, Dallas Covenant kept on pressing and shooting 3-pointers until they got to the century mark. They were not happy up 59-0 at the half.
The winning coach said it just "kind of happened." Believe me, if the coach had not wanted the team to run up the score and hit triple digits, it would not have happened. I have coaches, in all sports, call of the dogs and be content with the lopsided score. You can win without destroying a team's pride.
To rub a kid's nose in it and pound a team 100-0 in not being a good sport. It is a shallow victory indeed. Now the victors are saying they are sorry and want to forfeit.
Well, what goes around comes around. One day Dallas Covenant will get throttled and the roll will be called up yonder.
