USA Basketball Team Accused of Unsportsmanlike Conduct For Running Up Score

The latest Olympics scandal, USA defeated Nigeria 156-73. Seriously.


After the U.S. Olympic men's basketball team crushed Nigeria by more than doubling its score, the Americans found themselves playing defense against accusations that their record-setting 156-73 rout was unsportsmanlike.

Coach Mike Kryzewski denied that the Americans intended to embarrass their opponents. Instead, he said that the Nigerians could reasonably have been offended had his team had not played their hardest.
