A Record 138 Consecutive losses

Friendship Academy High School of Tennessee lost 138 consecutive basketball games from 1967 to 1973 to set a national record.  They lost one of those games 71-0, and another 2-0 when one of Friendship’s players shot the ball into  the wrong basket.  One of those seasons , the coach named a player on his team who had not scored a basket all season, the team MVP.  A reporter asked the coach about his choice, and the coach replied, “You don’t think scoring is everything do you?’  The reporter then asked,  “Is there anything this team does well?”  “Not really,” the coach answered.  “Is your team getting any better?”  “I truthfully couldn’t say that we are.”  “Do you like coaching?”  “I don’t care that much for basketball.”
