every state is different. And yes, I think there should Be a shot clock. I watched my daughters high school team literally dribble out time. The only way the other team stopped it was to foul. This waaa for the SCC championship. As happy as I was that they won, def shouldn’t have won that waySo the governing board of high school basketball just voted down a shot clock..I never knew there wasn't a shot clock in h.s. So experts should there be one? Why or why not?
I proposed the same idea in a different thread last season and was taken to the wood shed over my idea. My other idea was to raise the basket to 12 or 13 feet for men's CBB, NBA and International games for over 18yo players.There are two schools of thought. The first is the old North Carolina four corners. The other is probably get it down court in five seconds and three seconds to shoot. I grew up watching the four corner offense and can truthfully say that I've never been more bored in my life. I appreciate good defense but with the proper players it was almost impossible to defend, especially with good ball handlers (who Dean Smith always recruited.) As far as a twenty four second shot clock, that was thrown away by the "dunk". I would rather see the following change - one point for a dunk, two or three for an outside shot depending on the length, and a forty second clock.
1. One reason is money. It costs money to install a good shot clock apparatus and you may have to pay someone to run it.As far as a shot clock, I don't understand why High Schools don't have one. It would appear to make games a bit more equal by giving each team more opportunities on offense.
It wouldn't necessarily favor the stronger team if the weaker team holds the ball every time they get the ball, would it?1. One reason is money. It costs money to install a good shot clock apparatus and you may have to pay someone to run it.
A shot clock actually favors the stronger team. The more possessions there are, the more often the stronger team will prevail.
Yup Mass has a shot clock, Connecticut doesn’t... at the high school classic in Springfield CT teams had to adjust.In Massachusetts, I believe they start using a shot clock in 5th grade travel ball. I can't believe Connecticut doesn't use a shot clock in high school. That really hurts CT High School Bball.
