    Just a question

    Was there a reason behind the 75 point beat down by SHA over Atherton on Tuesday? Not taking sides on whether it was right or wrong, just wondering if there was a statement to be made or something like that. For the record I believe if you are going to play at a certain level, you must accept the reality that something like this may happen from time to time.But I also believe that there comes a point in a game such as this where a coach can institute certain things to "call off the dogs" so to speak. I have no idea what went on during this game so that's why I'm asking.

    I don't see this much different then say SK's 64 19 win or 60+/- 25 win over Williamstown. Not sure what else you can do. Just play the game I guess..

    Sounds like they did call off the dogs. I’d say sacred heart is about 125 points or so better. So winning by 75 is calling off the dogs.

    To confirm your concerns, no starters played after Q1 and the team was required to make (5) passes in the half court before scoring. It is unfortunate;however, this was a required District game. It didn't help that Atherton's second leading scorer was out too.

    Whomever was responsible for scheduling the game between Sacred Heart and Atherton are at fault here. Each Coach and/or AD had to have known the disparity between the two and that a result like this was probable.

    As far as SK/Williamstown is concerned they are in the same district and have to play for seeding purposes. Not SK's fault if a lopsided score occurs. That is why the KHSAA should class the districts in each region and then they wouldn't have to play during the regular season. Would only potentially play in the regional tourney and you would assume if a small school like Williamstown made it to the regional then they would be good enough to prevent something like this from happening if they came up against a big school like SK.

    Disregard my comment re: Sacred Heart/Atherton. Didn't know they were in same district.
