Iowa girls teams combine for 240 points


REINBECK, Iowa -- Two Iowa high school girls basketball teams combined for 240 points Monday night, shattering the national record for points scored in a game.

Gladbrook-Reinbeck and West Marshall set the mark in double overtime, with Gladbrook-Reinbeck winning 122-118.

National Federation of State High School Associations spokesman John Gillis says the previous mark was 222 points, set when Mississippi's Booneville-Thrasher beat Wheeler 113-109 on Dec. 7, 2004.

It was the third straight game of at least 100 points for Gladbrook-Reinbeck, which plays an up-tempo style with plenty of 3-pointers and substitutions. Five Gladbrook-Reinbeck players scored at least 16 points.

West Marshall's Hailee Halverson led all scorers with a career-high 36 points and 18 rebounds.
