Phil Taylor writes (POINT AFTER, April 6), "What kind of man could preside over a 100--0 game? Maybe a better man than you thought." I believe a man's character is revealed by how he treats those who can do nothing for him. Micah Grimes, the coach of the winning high school basketball team who was subsequently fired, revealed his character.
John L. Licciardi, Naples, Fla.

When I told my children about a coach being fired after a 100--0 basketball game, my 15-year-old daughter's response was, "He deserved to be fired." But she assumed that the losing coach was the one who lost his job. If the administrators at the losing school, Dallas Academy, were smart, they would fire their existing coach and hire Grimes.

Due to a writer's error, a quote in March Madness Comes to High School Hoops (April 13) was incorrectly attributed to ESPN RISE senior vice president James Brown. No ESPN representative commented for the story.
