The Bloomington South High School girls’ basketball team crushed Arlington High School 107-2 on Tuesday night in Indianapolis.
Arlington’s only two points came from free throws in the second and third quarters. There is no mercy rule in place, so the game continued for the full four quarters. All nine players on Bloomington South’s team received playing time.
Chris Kaufman, a spokesman for the Indiana High School Athletic Association, told RTV6, “(The score) is probably not what we would like to see.”
Arlington has lost 23 consecutive games, and is currently 0-6 this season with an average of 17 points per game. However, such a significant loss has sparked some controversy, about both the Bloomington South coaching and the Indiana High School Athletic Association’s no-mercy rule.
