An interesting story hit the Christian school news recently about one girls high school team that beat another in basketball 100-0. No, that’s not a typo. There has been much drama about it since Christians are of course supposed to reflect Christ and show Christ-like behavior at all times. The principal of the winning school apparently felt that the team did not in this extremely lopsided victory and made a formal apology to the other school. Their school after all had a winning team and the other one hadn’t won a game in the last four seasons. The coach of the team felt the apology was in error and respectfully disagreed with it. Shortly after, he was fired. Just from this, it may seem that the coach was in the wrong and should have been fired, but from here it just gets interesting. The coach had apparently just a few years ago led this school from lopsided losses to their current winning team. Also, according to the players they did not try their best on purpose: missing shots, not taking some shots, and generally not playing hard once they racked up 25 points. From their testimony there was really not much more they could have done as the other coach wasn’t giving up and it would be silly for the winning team to just up and call the game just because they were winning so badly. Maybe I’m wrong. Read the articles and let me know what you think.
