Shot clocks in highschool?

Page 2 of High school athletics is about the kids. No, one said that is wasn't about the kids. I could ask anyone of my varsity players in the 17 years that I ha... 64 comments | 3081 Views | Go to page 1 →

    Totally agree 15-20 points could helps kids scoring avg which could get big name colleges to look at them. But if one school gets them every other team would need to get them. this could be a big problem to small schools such as A and AA teams

    I really hope to see high school get a shot clock and soon. I understand the concept of protecting a lead and trying to run the clock out but dont like the fact that they can do it for a whole quarter or so. What players that do make it to the college level are going to have to get used to the concept of playing with a shot clock so i think that Ky should try if at all possible to implement in if at all possible within the next 3-5 years.

    I don't think it's necessary, I haven't seen too many games involving stall tactics, IMO you would see less stalling if they played two 16 minute halves instead of four 8 minute quarters. This would eliminate those last posession stalls you see in most games.

    The womens head coach at Northern Kentucky University told me weeks ago that having a high school shot clock is what she and most college coaches would love to see at the High School level....And a far as money goes, the Cash Cow, better know as the KHSAA, could bid a contract for all schools in the Commonwealth that could bring the price down quite a bit........

    Shot clocks:
    Would love to see it happen. Cannot stand to watch a game that a team plays stall ball. And when each team plays it. UGLY

    Exactly. There are some schools, like Owsley that are stretched to the limit on the athletic budget. And for volunteers, you could probably find another volunteer to do the games, most games as you said but what about the girls games.... there's another problem when you barely have someone to run the clock little on need another volunteer. I think the idea is good, but small schools just don't have the budget, with all the other Title IX regulations that are already put on us......

    They have the option, and Belfry has installed them. They're very nice.

    Id love to see a shot clock in high school but most of the 16th region coaches would be lost.

    Shot clocks? No way.

    If you feel like a team is stalling on you, get out and put pressure on them and force them into making a mistake.

    If the 15th Region appointed the refs that wasnt very good to run the shot clock, then wed have nobody to call the game because theyd all be running the shot clock lol.

    Shot clocks will be the next best thing in Kentucky High School Basketball. I want to see you beat me by putting it in the hoop not running it around out front and not even attempting to make a basket. It went out of college years ago why it's still in high school is beyond me.

    "A" and"AA" have nothing to do with it. My school is a very small "A" and we have one of the nicest facilities in the eight region with shot clock's already installed on the upper concourse railing. Also only one of our "A" schools gym's would be considered sub-par. If my vote means anything I say put them in.
