In competitive team sports, I’m one that believes that you should try to crush your opponents, it doesn’t matter how terrible they are. If you’re able to go 80-0 like girls’ basketball team, Detroit Cass Tech, did to Osborn, then so be it, you smash them.
When I read the initial headline, I thought the dominant team ran their starters against a sub-par team for the entire game, that wasn’t the case.
“My starters only played 6 minutes in the first quarter, then I put the seniors back in for literally 2 seconds, just so they could get a standing ovation when I took them out because it was senior night,” said Thrower. As a former athlete myself, you never want to see anything like that. You hear about stuff like this. You want it to be a competitive game. It was just a bad situation. A mismatch.”
Well, if you can’t score against the third and fourth string, that school may want to cancel their girls basketball program and allocate those funds elsewhere, like maybe the glee club.
