: : : So I read this board and I have seen people take shots at a team like Arroyo Valley who plays a very weak schedule and scores a ton a points (scored over 100 points and 90 a couple of times) but then I just saw a score of a highly respected coach against a league opponent and they scored over 100 points and won by 90.
: : : What is the deal? Do we give a pass to a coach we like when they "run up the score," or should they be held to the same scrutiny?
: : : I've never been a part of a game either way which got that out of hand but that seems a bit extreme.
: : I guess one may get upset if the coach continued to press and/or extend pressure while up by that much. Sometimes coaches pull back, sub, and games still get out of hand. Other coaches decide that no matter what they are going to work on things throughout the game in order to prepare for tougher future opponents... I think with the shot clock, sometime even when a coach calls off the dogs, the game can still get out of hand because every 29 seconds you got to let the ball go.
: They need to lower the margin down to 25-30 points beginning in the 3rd quarter for the clock to continue to run instead of waiting for 4th quarter for a running clock at 40+ point margin
25 to 30 point lead is a nice margin however the 3rd qtr IMO is to soon for a running clock earlier this year my team was down 32-6 at halftime my kids came out at the start of the game and had no interest in playing the game what so ever but when that second half started they played there butts and battled back tied the game in fourth before they ran out of gas and we lost in OT by 3 running clock would've killed just about any chance of getting back in the game
