Girls prep teams set scoring record
Two Iowa high school girls basketball teams combined for 240 points Monday night, shattering the national record for points scored in a game.
Gladbrook-Reinbeck and West Marshall set the mark in double overtime, with Gladbrook-Reinbeck winning 122-118.
National Federation of State High School Associations spokesman John Gillis says the previous mark was 222 points, set when Mississippi's Booneville-Thrasher beat Wheeler 113-109 on Dec. 7, 2004.
It was the third straight game of at least 100 points for Gladbrook-Reinbeck, which plays an up-tempo style with plenty of 3-pointers and substitutions. Five Gladbrook-Reinbeck players scored at least 16 points.
West Marshall's Hailee Halverson led all scorers with a career-high 36 points and 18 rebounds.
