I know in most of the Quebec leagues ive played and ref'd in, there was always a 15-20 point grace rule. You could not full court press if your team was up by that amount or more, which helped keep the scores under control. Obviously, that didnt stop teams from blowing eachother out, it does happen and it is part of sport. But what's bad about this situation is that there was no NEED to run up the score that high. It's not professional sports, it's a high school basketball league. I wont comment on it being "christ-like" or not, like they say in the article, but it definitely wasn't sportsmanlike, considering the circumstances. Im not saying that everyone should tip toe around and avoid hurting anyone/everyones feelings, but this was unecessary. And i think the coach should have (morally) told the team to hold back. Him saying what he's saying now is a bit ridiculous. They could have still gotten their win without making themselves be the enemy to everyone else. I agree that maybe this other team isnt classified in the right division or whatever, but i mean, look at the schools situation, you cant expect them to be world champions.
