The question almost contradicts itself. Teams, on average, have around 20 assists a game. If a team has 38 assists, that is considered fairly high, and will most likely score a lot. A similar question would be if you asked "How can you have a lot of apples if you only have 14 apple trees?" Obviously, 14 apple trees is a lot and you will produce a lot of apples.

Either way, that is very possible. For instance, Kobe Bryant once scored 81 points against the Toronto Raptors. Being a two guard, he can handle the ball very well. He doesn't need anyone to pass it to him, and can go coast to coast and score by himself. That's already 81 points. If the other players on the team score 40 points by themselves (i.e. a fastbreak in which they make layups or shoot pull-up three pointers) then that is already 120 points, with no assists needed.

Obviously, both of those cases are rare (scoring 60+ points and having 40+ fast break points). Games usually have around 20 fast break points and players score around 25-30 points a game if they are very talented.

The point is, 38 assists is a lot. You will most likely score a high amount with that amount as a team. However, you can score a high amount with very little assists as well, but it isn't as likely.

What type of scoring is used in volleyball?

It depends on what level you are playing at. I play on my high school team and we use rally score. We go up to 25 points and you have to be at least two points ahead to win the game. For example if the score was 25-24 the game would not be over the winning team would have to get one more point to win the game. Rally scoring is when you win the volley [the ball hits the floor on the other teams side or out on your side etc.] you get a point whether or not your team served the ball. In 8th grade we used the original scoring way. We only went to 15 points then but you still had to win by two points. The original scoring is when you have to serve the ball and win the volley in order to get a point.

If a batter hits a game winning home run but never crosses the plate is he out?

If the walk off home run scores another runner that was already on base and that was the run to win it then there is no need for him to cross the plate and he is not called out. For example, in a tie game with the bases loaded if the batter hits a home run the only run that needs to cross the plate is the runner on third. Once that runner crosses the game is over and any more scoring becomes redundant so the game ends on the score sheet. If it is a solo shot or if the hitters run is detrimental to his or her team winning the game than the batter must cross the plate for the run to count.
