He didn't even talk to his girls during the TO, just us.

Early in the 2nd half, coach asks for another TO and immediately instructs his girls to pack up their stuff and vacate the bench. Nobody said a word to my partner and I nor to the other team and coaching staff.
Apparently, he wasn't getting his way and called it quits.
At the time of forfeit, his team was trailing by 12 or so.

Anyone ever see or hear of something similar happening?
A coach simply pulls his players off the floor and leaves??!!!


Welcome to the wonderful world of AAU, YBOA, and any other alphabet soup group you can think of. All I can say is take you game fee and be thankful for the extra time you have to rest before you next game.
