I'm usually on board with most of the things that classify as "pussification of america", but not situations like this. I mean let's assume it was 55-0 at halftime, it is OBVIOUS you're going to win and win easily. There simply isn't any point in rubbing the other team's nose in it. I'm not saying they should dribble at halfcourt for 5 minutes then throw up a bad shot, but hell. Put in the 5 worst players you can scrape off the bench, let 'em work on passing, only let the shitty girls on the team shoot, play a relaxed defense, whatever. There's just no real difference in winning 50-0 as opposed to 107-2. The point is made regardless.
I get what you're saying, but there is no shot clock.
If the team is bad enough to lose 107-2, that means they are so bad, that even if the other team didn't shoot and just worked on passing/dribbling, they would do that the WHOLE game. The other team seems so helpless they would never get the ball, wouldn't steal it, nothing.
The best case scenario is for your team to play slow, jack up a shot eventually, and let the other team rebound it so they get the ball once in awhile. I would do that not out of the kindness of my heart, but to break up the depressing monotony that would push me to the brink of suicide watching my team pass the ball for 2 hours.
