    Set up a game with a good team (like Florida) against a bad team (like Hartford), but crank all the sliders for the player up to 100 and for the CPU down to zero. This will tip the scales in your favour.

    The shortest length game you can set is 2 minute halves. This will make it less painful to start over should the CPU manage to beat you. Get a basket early and try to eat up as much of the shot clock as you can, both on offense and defense. Hold onto the lead, and build it using high percentage shots like dunks when you have the opportunity.

    The Achievement will unlock at the end of the game.

    Easiest way to get this achievement is the two-controller method. Set the game to 2-minute halves, and set difficulty to All-American, the highest difficulty setting. Make sure you do not attempt any 3-point shots. Only take shots from inside the 3-point line. And with the second controller, as the opponent, simply don't score more than your primary controller. Turn the ball over on purpose.

    All of the various tips that Verman360 listed in his solution are valid and will help as well, especially if you feel like earning this one against the CPU, but it will certainly be easier with two controllers. Just wanted to confirm that the two-controller method does in fact work for this and most other achievements in this game.
