Story Summary

An alien race, controlled by 33,452 rules, sends its advanced team to challenge Earthlings. If their forces defeat a planet's forces three times, they destroy the planet and move on. Unfortunately they mistake a school basketball team for military forces. They easily defeat the jocks but meet their match in the two nerds on the sidelines who turn their obsession with rules against them.
