Have you ever heard of a shutout in basketball? Well it nearly happened in Chico Thursday night. The Crosspoint girls’ basketball team beat Chief Leschi 47 to 4. The Lady Warroirs held a 19 to 0 halftime lead and gave up the four points in the third quarter while adding 12 more to their total. In the fourth, Chief Leschi went scoreless while Crosspoint added 16 more. Ouch! There is a mercy rule which is triggered when a team builds a 40-point lead in the second half. In this case, that wasn’t triggered until the final quarter.
