Texas: Duncanville coach describes 91-1 win over Grand Prairie as 'no-win situation'

Seems there are a couple of these every year. While the score looks bad, there are times I'm not sure much can be done about it other than shortening the game or never scheduling it in the first place.

The Duncanville girls basketball team has lost only one game over the last two seasons, but on Tuesday night, the Pantherettes were in a "no-win situation."

That's how Duncanville coach Cathy Self-Morgan described the 91-1 victory over Grand Prairie.

"We played our regular game for three minutes, and then we put in the subs and sat back in a two-three zone," the coach said. "And we never play that."

This is girls basketball in a nutshell. You have a handful of great teams and bunch of bad teams. High school girls basketball is a very bad product overall.

Baylor's women beat Winthrop 140-32 last night. Fun for all, I'm sure.

I really don't know. Some of the best athlete girls in our area only play volleyball. I notice a lot of the really good teams are very aggressive in their play. A lot of fouling. I don't think some girls like that physical contact constantly.

I saw that. I didn't see who they beat, I had assumed it was an D2 team or something. The NCAA really should disband women's basketball. What a waste of university money for all but 5 schools (UConn, ND, Baylor, Tennessee, eh who cares who the 5th team is).

Also, I think some of the girls that do play basketball don't like it. Some of the girls on our local team groan about basketball when it is brought up. Kind of sad. And this team kills most teams.

After some checking, probably not a fair comparison. It appears that most of the upper classmen left the program early at Winthrop over the last 2 years, including one now at Tennessee. It's basically a team of freshmen sent in to face the 3rd best team in the country with a predictable result.

Specialization kills basketball more than other sports because it overlaps with both fall and spring seasons for other varsity/club sports. We have a top tier soccer player who is also our best basketball player and it is a constant struggle as soccer events come up during season that lasts November- through March. Throw in AAU that is pushed by coaches as a requirement to be a "serious" basketball player and you lose kids that are tremendous athletes in other sports such as track/lacrosse/soccer but also really competitive basketball players. Some multi sport athletes play basketball in high school, but it is becoming less so and it hurts the level of the sport.

The push to specialize has limited interest in the sport to these groups only:

1. Those who play AAU. And there aren't enough of those girls in most schools.

2. Elite athletes. See #1.

The decent athlete who would play the game if it was just for the winter doesn't play much anymore. She can't play and be competitive so it isn't much fun.
