The girls from Bloomington South High School played the girls from Arlington High on Tuesday night in Indianapolis. What happened is the most harrowingly one-sided affair basketball has seen since Michael Jordan practiced with the Looney Tunes in Space Jam.
Bloomington South defeated Arlington 107-2!. Arlington’s only two points came on free throws in the second and third quarter. Bloomington coach Larry Winters was dismissive of the accusation that they ran up the score on Arlington:
“I didn’t tell my girls to stop shooting because that would have been more embarrassing (to Arlington),” Winters said, telling the Star that Arlington’s defense was in an aggressive 2-3 zone. “We were not trying to embarrass them or run up the score.”
Arlington has now lost 23 straight games dating back to last season.
