240-point game breaks record for girls high school basketball

Girls high school basketball in Iowa sure ain't what it used to be.

In the state where girls used to play six-on-six and only forwards were allowed to shoot, two teams combined Monday night for an astonishing 240 points.

The Gladbrook-Reinbeck Rebels outlasted the West Marshall Trojans 122-118 in a double-overtime barn burner.

By contrast, another girls high school game in Iowa the same night featured a final score of 27-26, the Times-Republican newspaper reported.

The 240 total points is a national record for a high school girls basketball game, smashing the old record of 222 set in a 113-109 win by Booneville, Mississippi's Thrasher High School over Wheeler in 2004, according to the National High School Sports Record Book.

The two teams scored at a rate of six points per minute in the 40-minute game. It was tied at 98 at the end of regulation and at 108 after the first four-minute overtime, according to the Times-Republican.

The Rebels' Paige Thompson scored 10 of her 20 points in the second overtime to ice it for the home team.
