A local radio station reported a final score of 248-142 in some
Division II game.  I think they said that one of the teams was from
Georgia.  Does anyone have any information on this game?  Just curious.

ESPN said it was something like Alabama State (Birmingham???) vs.
DeVry Institute (YES, the trade school!!!) of Atlanta....

DeVry hit over 50% of their shots and still lost....

Here is a little more information, courtesy of the Atlanta Constitution
(the DeVry Institute which lost is over in nearby Decatur, Ga.):

"...Troy State, which eclipsed its own NCAA scoring record Sunday,
averag[ed] more than six points a minute in a 258-141 victory over
DeVry.

  The Division II Trojans (13-3) turned in a record-setting performance
for the second year in a row against DeVry (3-16), an Atlanta computer
college that's a member of NAIA Division II.

  Last year, Troy State beat DeVry 187-116, setting NCAA marks - regardless
of division - for the most points in a game by one team and most points
in a half (103).

  This time, Troy State scored 135 points in the second half and became
the first NCAA team to score 200 points when Steve Hunt made a 3-pointer
with 7:57 remaining.

  The game also set a record for most points, 399.  The old NCAA mark
had been 331 in Loyola Marymount's 181-150 victory over U.S.
International in 1989.

  The records made a 117-point loss easier to accept.  'This is the
most fun I've had all season', DeVry captain Clayton Jones said."

Other points of interest:

        points per minute (both teams) =  9.98, = 6.45 by Troy State

        only 7 fouls (1 by Troy State)  [JNB note: who were the refs?]

        3 blocked shots

        44 turnovers by DeVry

        3-pointers:     51 of 109 for Troy State, 7 of 20 for DeVry

For those who are curious, Troy State is located in Troy, Alabama,
about 50 miles south of Montgomery.

I believe the winning team was Troy State. The losing team was DeVry (sp?)
Institute...a computer type technical school, owned and run, I believe, by
the Bell & Howell Corporation. (at least there's a school in Phoenix by the
same name that *is* run aby B&H.)

And for those of you who are curious, DeVry is one of those computer
trade schools you see advertised on late night tv.  

What a joke.  I hope this doesn't qualify for an official NCAA record.

I understand that they are NAIA division II.

While I admire any team that can score 240 points in 40 minutes, this
score has nothing to do with the game of basketball.  Put them in the
Guiness book of records, along with the guy who juggles 10 basketballs
at once, the guy who grabs 6 baseballs in one hand, and the
half-a-mile hero sandwich.

Actually, it was Troy State 258, DeVry 141.  Troy State is in Northern
Alabama.  Troy State hit 50 of 102 three pointers during the game.  The
half time score was 123-53.  Last year, Troy State won the game something
like 191-113 and they were out to break the 200 point mark.  It's not
too amazing that Troy State's high powered offense got 258 points, but
what's more amazing is that DeVry got 141 points.

I agree. I also hope the other players in the other team [DeVry] can
program better than they play 'defense'.

  hhhhmmmmmm....How long have you lived/worked in Huntsville?  If you go
  much farther south than Troy you'll be in Florida.

  Its amazing that every team that Troy St. has played  hasn't scored 140+
  points.  I almost missed the 2nd have of the Auburn-Troy St game because
  I got there with 7 minutes left in the half and mistakingly thought there
  was only 7 minutes left in the game.  Reason: Auburn scored almost 80 points
  in the 1st half.  If you like the 3 pt shooting contest at the NBA all-star
  game you'd probably like to watch Troy St.  Otherwise, calling what they
  play down in Troy "basketball" may be stretching the terminology a bit.

I saw a some highlights on ESPN and didn't see anyone even pretend to
play defense.  Was there some sort of agreement between the coaches
to set the record?

I doubt that the coaches were involved, but the player's post-game
comments gave me the definite impression that they were after the
record. They also indicated that they would try again next year.

The DeVry coach was interviewed at length on the "Mike and the
Mad Dog Show" (WFAN in NYC).  He was very upbeat.  He said
a game like this gets them great exposure and will help in their
recruiting efforts.  Mike asked him what he told his team
at halftime when they were down by 70.  The coach said
"Let's get some quick baskets, pop some treys, and see if we
can get back into the game."  Not one word about playing some
defense.  

The whole thing was a sham.  The DeVry captain had 19
turnovers.  All shots were uncontested.  The DeVry coach
can't wait till next ye to see what happens.
