Sports: Coach of basketball team with 100-0 game: It wasn’t our goal

  • To us, it was just another game. I think to mainstream media, everyone looked at it as … a team that just decided to run up a score.
  • Micah Grimes • Former coach of the Dallas, Tx.-based Covenant School girl’s basketball team, discussing at length his team’s 100-0 thrashing of Dallas Academy in January. Dude. Did you not see the freaking score? It wasn’t like you guys tripped into winning. The win set off a national debate about sportsmanlike conduct in high school sports, by the way, and Grimes lost his job in the process. At least someone took something good out of the game. • source

Offbeat, Sports: A 100-0 loss in girls’ basketball? Pssh, we really won!

  • My girls never quit. They played as hard as they could to the very end. They played with all their hearts at 70-nothing, 80-nothing and 100-nothing.
  • Jeremy Civello • Dallas Academy athletic director, on a 100-0 high school girls’ basketball loss that he’s way too freakin’ optimistic about. The Texas school, which deals with students with a variety of learning problems, pulled the team from the league shortly thereafter, and the opposing team calls the score an embarrassment – on their part. • source
