If a team that does score over 100 points in a game and win, do they get to put the game ball in the display case or don't?

I guess that would be up to the home team's discretion (especially if they aren't the ones that scored 100).

It is up to the school but seriously?? An "award" for 100 points scored?  I know it's not all that common in HS bball, although I think it is and will happen more and more in the coming years but that seems a bit overboard if you ask me. I counted 8 100+ pt boys games on 12/4, 12/7, 12/8 and 12/9 combined. If there are 8 in 4 days there will probably be close to 100 such games over the course of the season.

A game ball for a kid that sets a school record for points in a game  - OK
A game ball for a 22-0 season - sure.
A game ball for a career points milestone like 1000 or the school all time record - yes.

Can girls teams get a game ball for scoring 85?

Call me old school but this is sent with a growing dislike for all of the "look at me" I scored 22 pts tonight (on 34 shots) that social media seems to be all about.

I think it's worthy of a photo in the yearbook and leave it at that.  No need for that ball in the trophy case.

I agree with Blade. The kids get enough ribbons. How about we go back to the gym and get to work on becoming a great team, and/or player? We don't need to give an award for everything.


Next they will be giving out MVP awards for just 1 game... oh wait, that already happens when it serves the purpose of the "look at me" kids and their AAU handlers.

Don't various media outlets have player/athlete of the week awards? I remember a Wausau tv station having player of the week. Does Wissports also have us vote on player of the week and team of the week? I don't get the problem.

I don't have any issue with a media outlet naming an "athlete of the week."  I thought an "MVP" for 1 game was over the top.

** Edited for clarification** 

Yes, and that is a whole other story.  Last week they promoted (Tweeted or retweeted) a photo of one of their players and a photo he took of another kid in a locker room.  It was not an inappropriate photo in any way except it was taken in a locker room. What school has a policy that allows kids to take photos in a locker room? You have to be smarter that that as a HS kid by now.

It's rare that a high school team scores 100 points in a game but it has become more common. Kaukauna did it several times last year. Heck, Minneapolis North scored 105 points and lost to Kaukuana 122-105. The only way that I would see anyone wanting to take a ball or photo or net from of a 100 point game is if it were the first time in school history or possibly breaking a school record.

Think of it this way:  A team scoring 100 points in a game seems to be much more rare than a player scoring 1000 points, yet 1000-point scorers often get a game ball or even a customized ball of some kind. 100 points is very rare, and I guess I'm not sure why putting the game ball in a display case with other memorabilia is such a big deal, especially when it have absolutely zero impact (negative or positive) on anyone that actually complains about it.

In my mind it really just plays into the "look at me" mindset of too many of today's youth players. Have to have an award, a social media post or a s/o about themselves.  1000 pts in a career is a nice acknowledgement of performance over a longer period of time.  Winning 103-37 because, well the other team was bad is not award worthy IMO. As I mentioned, is 85 pts in a game suitable acknowledgement for a girls team?

If someone wants to do that fine, so be it ,but I will chuckle and roll my eyes when I see it in a trophy case.

I think the WIAA should step in and regulate this before it gets out of hand. Call it the "Look at me " regulations? What else? Locker room pictures? Social media?

No, each school sets and enforces their code of conduct policy and each school gets to decide what they put in their trophy case. That is why some kids get suspended during the season for a social media post and others plead guilty to multiple felonies but still get to play. 

I'll bet you Nicolet HS has a policy about taking photos in a locker room.
