    MILTON, Vt. -- Hard to imagine a 3-pointer in the second quarter of a high school boys' basketball game would turn out to be the winning basket -- unless it's one of only three made in the entire game.

    That basket, along with an earlier field goal, was all Bellows Free Academy-Fairfax needed to beat Milton on Wednesday night. The final score: 5-2.

Sounds a lot like those Heat-Knicks games I had to sit through some years ago.

The way I read it in my local paper is that Milton thought they had little chance to win, so they played for the last shot right from the beginning of the game. I guess if the goal is to win the game, the coach needs to decide the best way to accomplish that goal. Now that doesn't make an entertaining basketball contest, but they probably would have been crushed had they played it straight.

Gabba gabba hey!

How stupid. What's at stake? Let the kids have some fun, let the parents and friends not be bored to death, get blown out, and maybe learn how to play a little better while you're at it. If this were a playoff game or something I could maybe see it, but at the level of Vermont High School Basketball, what's the point?

Man's most valuable trait is a judicious sense of what not to believe.

Of course it's not on TV down here. I went to set it to record, only to find the only way I can see it here is if I've got the NBA Package or whatever it's called.
