This shouldn't be regarded as anything but embarrassing. The game was not meant to played in this fashion.

If someone was full court pressing my team at the end of a game with a huge lead... someone would be getting laid out. I couldn't care less about the "system" they are running. Sportsmanship is sportsmanship, and the response to poor sportsmanship is someone getting laid out on the floor.

That burst of speed by #24 at the 55 second mark if this clip was very impressive to me. I don't know if I've ever seen anyone make a drive that fast.

I guess it just depends and, to be honest, I have no idea. I do know the DIII school close to where I'm from was alright. The guys that play(ed) there weren't even necessarily the best or second best player on their high school team, but were/are still really good solid basketball players. If anything, most of them are skilled players with a really good understanding of the game. Even when they come out on the court they don't look much different than a high school team size wise. They'll have a few bigs in the 6'5"-6'7" range and a lot of guards in the 5'10"-6'2"ish range.

It probably varies greatly since I'm guessing there's a ton of DIII schools around the country. I'm guessing some teams field a roster that could be somewhat competitive at a higher level, and obviously there's DIII players that absolutely could at least hack it at a higher level.

Of course that school isn't ever nationally competitive and DIII schools can't give out athletic scholarships.

I'm going to ignore the 0 assist part because that is horrid but the fact the he scored 138 points and I dont care if he shot 102 shots is still impressive. Division 3 basketball is a straight joke though.

If he passed the ball on half of those threes, that would have been time wasted and it arguably would have worked against their own system. The first semi-clean look goes up.

I think it'd be a strange, yet welcomed adjustment to be able to play basketball and never think twice about one's own shot selection. There's not a lot of "within the flow" or "let's work it around". It's, "if you've got a shot, take it, immediately."

I respectfully disagree. I think it's wonderful to know the game can be successfully toggled in such a manner; that the "same old" isn't the only way we'll ever be able to see a team get the job done. It's encouraging to know there's room for very unique strategies.

It sort of reminds me of a high school football coach I read about from the Arkansas area. He never punts, ever. He crunched a giant amount of data and came to the conclusion that it makes more sense for his team to take that extra down every drive and attempt to proceed up the field instead of willfully giving up possession, even if they're within their own 10 yard line. His strategy worked, as his team became state champions. However, even with data and logic to back up his reasons for not punting, there's still folks out there who claim he's an idiot not playing the game as it's intended to be played. I think the resistance to innovation, particularly when it's been proven successful, is short sighted.

Here's an article on the football coach: http://highschool.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=892888

Just slap him on a wrist couple times when he's shooting, deal sorted. It seems the other team was such a *******.

The Sportscenter interview is cracking me up.

They asked about his shot total:
Quote:
"Um, well we played in a tournament last weekend and I hadn't shot the ball very well, so coming into the game tonight, it was definitely a focus of our team to try to get me going offensively a little bit before we get into conference play."
Getting going offensively a little bit = 108 shot attempts.


When he realized something special was going on:
Quote:
"Um, I thought I only had about 30 points at halftime. But coach came in and told me I had 58 and the team was uh, really excited about that and um, wanted to continue giving me the ball."
Nothing like feeling like you have 30 and finding out you actually have 58... at half.


Another golden line, from the host:
Quote:
"I understand you were averaging 24 points before tonight's game. Now you're averaging 61."

Also, top comment raises an interesting point. How often can someone score 70 (as a player on the opposing team did) and get absolutely no publicity?
