The Halftime Score Of This College Basketball Game Is Absolutely Insane

There is an all-time beatdown going on in Houston today.

The No. 23 Houston Cougars, who are likely headed to the NCAA Tournament as an at-large selection even if they don't win the AAC Tournament, are beating the brakes off East Carolina. The Pirates are cellar-dwellars in the American Athletic Conference.

The halftime score of this one: 62-13.

No, seriously, that's what it was. That's a brutal football blowout, never mind a basketball halftime score.

Here is the box score at intermission.

Houston guards Rob Gray and Corey Davis, Jr. each outscored the Pirates in the first half. In fact, Gray nearly has as many assists (10) as ECU had points.

Houston seems destined to break 100, but ECU will have to turn it on to even get to 50.

This is ugly.
