Montclair Immaculate women's basketball head coach Jimmy Kreie has been suspended for "unsportsmanlike conduct" after beating a team by 74 points in their home opener...
quote: Montclair Immaculate coach Jimmy Kreie has been suspended for four games after Montclair Immaculate opened the season with a 104-30 win over Caldwell on Opening Night, Montclair Immaculate athletic director Jim Risoli said on Monday, citing a lack of sportsmanship.

“We want to reiterate that what occurred on Thursday evening does not represent our school’s values and beliefs,” Risoli said in a statement. “We try to make it our mission to uphold such virtues as respect, honor, and dignity in all things we do. When it comes to athletic competition, sportsmanship is something that we take pride in and unfortunately what occurred last Thursday evening was not something we condone.
Steve Tober of Sideline Chatter was the first to report on Kreie’s suspension. According to the report, there were memos circulating around athletic directors within the Super Essex Conference about the final score and there were pleas among them to utilize the SEC’s running clock rule moving forward.

The running clock starts in the second half when a team leads by 30 points in the second half, according to Risoli.

According to Tober’s report, Risoli was not aware of the rule beforehand.

The report added host schools are responsible putting the rule into effect and once the running clock starts, the time won’t return back to normal timing. The rule is also supposed to be at the scorer’s table and all SEC boys and girls basketball coaches have to have the regulations at each game, and any coach or school violating the rule is subject to penalties by the conference, according to the report.

The opposing coach should be suspended for having a shitty team and losing by too much.

If you’re pushing for a state title, these early season games allow you to work on a lot of stuff. They probably executed.

Sportsmanship would require playing the bench warmers and letting the top players watch them get some experience on the court in competition.

Great job of teaching the athletes that playing at full potential is not welcome. These ladies shouldnt have to sit out because an opponent sucks, suspend whomever scheduled the crappy opponent
