    This was a region tournament game (in Kentucky, all 220 schools are divided into 64 districts of 3-6 teams each; the district champ and district runner-up advance to 16 region tournaments that are eight teams. Each region champ advances to the 16 team state tourney at UK's Rupp Arena for boys and WKU's Diddle Arena for girls).

    The score was 2-0 in each of the first three quarters? Do they not have a shot clock in Kentucky?

    How do you explain the offensive explosion in the fourth quarter?

    My 5th-grade niece's team averages 22-25 ppg. With 6-minute quarters (running time).

    Why does girls basketball have the ridiculous low-scoring or large blowout games?

    Used to cover a team that played like this- Gadsden High in Gadsden, New Mexico. One game a couple years ago, maybe four, at Gadsden, Alamogordo lost 13-10. Made ESPN's crawl ticker. Drove all of us insane. Gadsden runs ultimate stall-ball, Alamo coach was happy to let them hold the ball. Panthers held ball in 2q for 6:45 at one stretch. Alamo players played rock, paper, scissors while on D.

    I assume Highlands stalled to keep Notre Dame from running all over them. Appears to not really have worked. Though Notre Dame would have had to participate by not standing near enough the girl with the ball to trigger a 5-second violation.

    Maybe it was the other way around though?

    Kentucky does not have a shot clock.

    Only 5-sec is closely guarded. So if defensive team goes compact zone and opposing team goes 4 corners, you can hold the ball all game.

    With 2:05 left in the Highlands-Notre Dame game, it was 10-6. Two fouls for ND, one for Highlands. Highlands picked up six fouls in the final 2:05, which means it felt it had to come out and play defense to stop the clock and put ND on the line. ND finished with three fouls.

    Highlands went scoreless for the first 24:10 before making a basket with 7:50 left in the game.

    Lowest score I witnessed when two teams utilized this strategy was still 39-30.

    Folks in Lexington are checking to see if this is the lowest postseason score on record since girls' basketball came back in 1975.

    Simply a matter of how much time the coaches and players want to invest in the program, in-season and off-season. One of the teams we cover has run the table in league, I believe, seven straight years. Blowouts this year include 80-2, 94-12, 80-12 and 80-9 ... but those pale in comparison to 103-3 last season. Basically, they'll play all summer long, take the fall off (while some play volleyball, golf or water polo), play a strong pre-league schedule (and a couple of strong OOC opponents during league) and hope they don't fall into bad habits during the blowouts, since they pull off the press after a quarter, if they even keep it on that long.

    I covered a boys game like that once. a postseason game in Michigan where the defending state champs got a scare from a team they should have walked over so once they tied it early int he fourth they just held it for the final shot and missed.
    In OT they won the tip. . .and held for the final shot and missed again.
    This went on for 5 OT's before they finally made it.
    Most boring 5 OT game I've ever covered
