Indiana Girls Hoop Team Wins 107-2

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Bloomington South High School girls basketball team beat Arlington High School 107-2 on Tuesday night in Indianapolis, prompting an official with the state prep sports association to say he never wants to see an outcome so one-sided again.

"(The score) is probably not what we would like to see," Chris Kaufman, a spokesman for the Indiana High School Athletic Association, told RTV6 in Indianapolis.

Bloomington South coach Larry Winters told the Indianapolis Star there was no effort to embarrass Arlington or run up the score. Winters said he played all nine of his players.

"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's only points came on a free throw in the second quarter and another in the third. In Indiana there is no "mercy rule," where games are halted when a score gets out of hand.

First-year Arlington coach Ebony Jackson says she was disappointed with how Bloomington South (8-1) handled the game. Her team is 0-6 this year and has lost 23 straight games.

"No, it's not OK, but (Winters) will have to live with that," Jackson said, according to the Star. "If that's how they want to carry themselves, that's fine. I'm focused on me and mine, and we'll just keep going."




In its report, the Star carried tweets from outraged fans. From one: "This is disgraceful & a blow 2the integrity of (Indiana high school basketball)."
