Mike_LowELL: Lol. Another college basketball player who could destroy those NBA thugs who don't pass the ball. It's pretty sad that there are Division III teams that could beat NBA teams, because college basketball players practice their fundamentals and have heart, which is something those NBA thugs don't have.
Principal Clarinet: From the reader comments:Faith Baptist Bible's motto is "thou shall not guardsteal".
Gunny Highway: Lost in all of this is David Larson of Faith Baptist.He was 34-44 with 70 points. That is some damn fine shooting.Box Score
SpikeStrip: trying to tie a bible verse in with an nba jam "he's on fire!" quip
Gunny Highway: The backlash has already started. People calling out the coach, the kid, the university. Saying that it is embarrassing for those who truly "love and honor the game". farking losers.
ghall3: Gunny Highway: The backlash has already started. People calling out the coach, the kid, the university. Saying that it is embarrassing for those who truly "love and honor the game". farking losers.It's embarrassing to have that little respect for your opponent, the shot clock is 35 seconds in college (I think), why keep insanely pressing and running when you are up by so many points? What is the point other than to embarrass your opponent? Again, it's DIII pretty sure none of these kids even get scholarships, they are playing because they love playing basketball.
Gunny Highway: Agree to disagree on the sportsmanship issue
Gunny Highway: you have no idea why the kids are playing.
Olfin Bedwere: David Larson's line for Faith Baptist is pretty impressive: 34-44, 70 points
SlothB77: does anyone find it odd that 20 different players got minutes for Grinnell? They don't have 12-man roster limits in D3 or something?
ghall3: Explain to me how that is not an example of poor sportsmanship? To completely destroy an over-matched opponent like that? Unless there is some history here between the teams...and even then it is probably uncalled for
Gunny Highway: That is their system. Run and gun and fill up the stat sheet. Maybe the coach should have called off the dogs at some point but I wouldnt want to get in the way to a kid playing like that.

Once you have an insurmountable lead though slow it down, there is no excuse not to.Also, the kid's stats aren't all that impressive in terms of percentages. I mean it is incredible to have the energy to shoot that many times in one game but aside from the stamina he, the coach, and the team just come off like a bunch of A-holes, but that's just me.
hugram: but I once scored 41 points in a game. This was a while back and it was in a very competitive park league.
thecpt: /highschool team made it to states based on the philosophy that we outrun, outmaneuver, and dominate the hustle aspect for loose balls. Great season and made us feel accomplished.
Gunny Highway: Like I said earlier I think we need to agree to disagree. Dont have an issue with a team beating another team badly.
