i think they need a shot clock for a least 4A schools. Games will be better and less boring
I really think a 35 second shot clock for all levels would be appropriate.
We have needed a shot clock in high school for a very long time
if theres a play clock for football there can be a shot clock for basketball
Des Moines register ran a story about this a couple of weeks ago: http://www.desmoinesregister.com/article/20140216/SPORTS08/302160110/Special-report-time-Iowa-high-schools-implement-shot-clock-
IHSSA concern? Cost for each school to purchase the clocks...
Not really the same, but high school basketball needs a shot clock.
how much would two cost if they want to improve the game this is a good way
Yes yes, a 1000x yes.
When a team that is up by four can "hold" the ball and milk the clock for a whole minute, there's some issues.
Three at least. You've got to have at least one spare.
And possibly two new scoreboard controllers if they are old enough that they don't have the shot clock capability.
I believe the 35 second shot clock should be implemented at the high school level. I would also like to see the college shot clock lowered to 30. Also, I like games with two halves and I wish high schools would change to that rather than having a break every 8 minutes.
I'd personally LOVE to see it as an official but I understand Colo-NESCO's athletics budget can't handle it nearly the same way Ames High's budget can. A lot of the smaller schools in Iowa are just scraping by as it is.
Two halves I'd totally disagree with. College playing halves isn't bad because they're playing in 4 minute chunks between each media timeout. That's not nearly the same story in high school.
You can get portable shot clocks they use in AAU tournaments for a couple hundred bucks.
Was just going to say this. They would have to implement some sore of "media timeout" at the highschool level to go to halves.
I would rather see colleges go to quarters and eliminate some of the TV timeouts.
thats the problem not all schools have the money to do it i think they should start out with 4A and if its a lot better try to get it in with 3a 2a and 1a
I would even be for one if it were as high as 40 seconds. It never seemed like it would impact the game even if it were 35 seconds for the several Hawkeye 10 games I went to this year. It really would only come in to play at the end of halves when one team would start their stall with 4 minutes. Sure you should be able to kill some clock, it is your reward for playing well, but seriously half a quarter.
Make it optional for the schools to have them during the regular season, but then hosts for district and substate games must have them for tourney. That's when it really matters.
Those aren't going to fly in the regular season. They have to be placed where everyone -- coaches, players, officials and fans -- can see them. A portable clock isn't going to fit the bill. It also means having to find and train another volunteer to learn the rules and operate it. Some small schools have trouble even finding volunteers to keep a score book on the road.
I think you will eventually see shot clocks at the high school level, there is some buzz about it right now, but it will most likely be the big schools first and on a conference-by-conference basis.
