125 to nothing.
The winners did not attempt a FT, and the losers were 0-2. I guess they were just standing around on D.

This is not uncommon over there. The shutout is, but such imbalanced scoring happens. They don't seem to have any compunctions about such slaughters in youth basketball. I don't know for sure as I wouldn't probably come across criticism, But these crazy scores happen enough that it looks like it is no problem for most.

And only 5 players appeared for each team?
Four players did all the scoring for the winners.
The losers had one girl with 4 fouls, and 3 with 1 foul each. Winners called for 8 fouls, one girl getting 4.

Also common are "mixed" younger age teams. Sometimes a girl scores over 50, is the high scorer. In smaller communities, strictly boys teams might include a girl or two. If either not enough girls are in an age group, perhaps.

I've also noticed that in almost all the age groupings, including adult local leagues, very few foul shots are attempted. Even when a player scores 60, it seems either they never foul him or the refs never call the fouls. It is more uncommon to see double digit FT attempts than to see these incredible scores like 146-8 or 114-2.

I did see a box score where one team had 10 of their 11 players each score 10 in a game.
