108-3 girls basketball rout raises questions

stunning scoreline -- from a varsity game in which Christian Heritage reportedly never used a full-court press -- nearly defies belief. As reported in the Deseret News and Salt Lake Tribune, Christian Heritage scored 28 points per quarter for the first three periods and 24 in the fourth, providing a consistent average of nearly two baskets per minute across the entire game. The Crusaders shut out West Ridge (pictured above running on to the court for the team's game following the rout) for the first three quarters, and Christian Heritage starter Josi Rydin even racked up a unique triple-double, with exactly 10 points, 10 rebounds and 10 steals.

"I don't know why the score was that high, or what the point was," Jamie Keefer, West Ridge's athletic director and a coach for the girls' team, told the Salt Lake Tribune. "I don't think it would've happened that way if it were the other way around."
