High School Basketball Game Ends with 2-0 Score!

The lowest scoring basketball game on record took place in Alabama last week. Bibb County in Alabama defeated Brookwood 2-0 Saturday in the lowest scoring game since 1977 according to the National Federation of State High School Associations.

Bibb County jumped on the board in the first 15 seconds, when Brandon Rutledge scored off the rebound of a teammate's missed three-point attempt. From there, Brookwood intentionally slowed everything down.

Ron Ingram of the Alabama High School Athletic Association hadn't found any games in the state where both teams failed to reach double digits in points.

"As far as I know, that is the lowest score that has ever been reported," Ingram said.

The Brookwood players just held the ball until the end of the first quarter, finally taking a shot at the buzzer.

Brookwood coach Thad Fitzpatrick told TuscaloosaNews.com the game plan was to slow down on offense because it was the team's fourth game of the week, and several players had cramped up in the previous night's game.

"We decided, ‘OK, let’s just hold the ball and see what happens.’" he said. "They never came out of the zone. We got a chance to rest, and we thought they might chase us a little bit, so we just held the ball.”

A 6'8" junior on the Bibb County basketball team, Rutledge had just played every minute of the game.

After winning the tipoff, a Bibb County guard launched a three-pointer. It was off the mark, but Rutledge grabbed the rebound and scored. Fifteen seconds had ticked off the clock. "At that point, I figured the game would be in the 50s," said Rutledge.

The teams collectively took seven shots in those final 15 seconds, all of them failing to find the net. And just like that, they put their names in the record books for something either would likely prefer to forget.
