It doesn't feel good to lose in the first round of the playoffs. It probably feels even worse to lose by 86 points. And it certainly feels even worse than that when the superintendent of the opposing school later apologizes for how bad you lost. But CBS Boston reports that's exactly what happened to the girls basketball team from Madison Park High School in Massachusetts this week. Madison Park was down 48-4 at halftime, but its opponent, East Bridgewater High School, continued its full-court press on defense into the third quarter and still had starters in the game with just minutes remaining in Madison Park's eventual 93-7 defeat, according to the Enterprise. Afterward East Bridgewater superintendent Elizabeth Legault apologized for the victory, calling it "an unfortunate situation" that "is not a reflection of our student body or our athletic program." Ouch. (More basketball stories.)
