According to ESPN, the head coach of a high school women’s basketball team in California has been suspended for two games following their 161-2 win. The game was the most lopsided victory in state history.
Arroyo Valley head coach Michael Anderson said he did not mean to run up the score against Bloomington High. At halftime, the score of the game was 104-1. When the teams returned to the floor, Arroyo Valley started their bench players. Anderson said he hoped that would make the game more even, but the bench players produced more than he had expected. One of the bench players was 8-of-9 behind the three-point line.
Bloomington head coach Dale Chung said Arroyo Valley used a “full court press” defense, a game plan that requires every defensive player to…

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — Wading into a states’ rights dispute over Internet access, President Barack Obama on Wednesday called for the repeal of laws that prevent local communities from creating their own broadband networks.
Obama, for the second time in three months, cast himself as an antagonist to large cable and telephone companies that provide the bulk of the nation’s Internet service.
Obama said faster speeds would create jobs and allow local businesses to compete in the global economy. “Today high-speed broadband is not a luxury, it’s a necessity,” Obama said from a storage area at Cedar Falls Utilities, with shelves full of coiled wire and other equipment.
Obama is encouraging the Federal Communications Commission to pre-empt state laws that stifle competition and said his administration will work to cut red tape so more communities can get connected.
“In too many places across America, some big…

WATCH ABOVE: Police in Evansville, Indiana released cellphone video of a one-year-old girl playing with a .40 calibre handgun. Police have arrested the child’s mother and a 19-year-old man.
EVANSVILLE, Ind. – A couple faces charges after investigators say they found cellphone videos showing the woman’s 12-month-old daughter putting a handgun in her mouth.
Police in Indiana discovered the videos after a 19-year-old man was arrested for trying to sell a handgun to an undercover officer.
Police say the man and the girl’s 22-year-old mother can be heard encouraging the toddler to say “pow” and that no one tried to stop her as she put the gun in her mouth.
Police say the mother told officers the girl was holding a pellet gun; investigators say it was a .40-calibre handgun. They say the gun’s magazine appeared to be removed but it’s not clear if ammunition was in the chamber.
