The Mercy Rule

Michael Anderson, coach of the Arroyo Valley High girl’s basketball team in California, has been suspended for three games after his team beat their competition with a score of 161-2. Anderson has been accused of ‘poor sportsmanship’ for allowing the gap in points to be so wide. This week on BTR Pulse, Sarah Fraser asks people if they believe the coach should have been suspended, and whether they think there should be a limit on scoring in high school sports.
