Shot clocks in highschool?


Recommended Posts

Was wandering if anyone thinks we will see shot clocks in highschool in Kentucky.I know they use them in Cali. highschools and would go out on a limb and say if it was possible to look it up that Cali. highschool teams average 15-20 more points a game than KY schools.I would loved to have seen it at the end of the Graves-Russell game when Graves held the ball for probably 7 minutes in the fourth.Also do you think it would even the playing field(or court),or would it make it even more difficult for the less athletic teams.I would personally love to see it and dont know why it is'nt brought up more often.It would prepare the kids for college ball too.

Who says they have to install them, Football teams dont have play clocks installed.

 

Football is a different sport. In basketball the kids have to set up their offense and oftentimes would not be aware of the amount of time that they have left to shoot without a shot clock.

 

I would like to see a shot clock in high school, but realize the difficulty that this may impose on some schools. Not to mention the introduction of either another volunteer to run the shot clock or another referee to pay to run it.

Give it about 3 more years and KY will be using a shot clock in high school. That's my prediction anyway.

 

I hope so...As far as as expense,I dont see it being that big of a deal with all the boosters these days.Shot clock installations are not that expensive,and as far as the extra ref to run it they could appoint some of the refs in each region that are "not so good" and bring in some younger eyes.Just a thought:ylsuper:

Refs will not be appointed to run it. It would be volunteers as in the person who keeps book and runs the time clock.

 

Not every school has big rich boosters.

I dont think schools would have trouble finding a good volunteer,but as far as funds go I'm sure each school would find a way.Take me for example,go borrow it from a bank for something you really want but maybe could do without.LOL

Some would not have a problem. Some have problems finding a person to keep clock and book for a freshmen game. Now they need a 3rd person. Ones who are not involved in running the programs, think of boys varsity and their thought process ends there.

 

Those involved in the programs have to think about having 3 volunteers for each girls freshmen game, boys freshmen game, girls Junior varsity game, boys junior varsity game as well as varsity for both. In a lot of schools, HS students will be keeping book and clock because they cannot get adult volunteers for those levels.

I'd love to see it happen, but I don't see it happening anytime soon. LBBC has pretty much explained why. Schools are on tight budgets, and they don't have the extra $2000+ to purchase a couple shot clocks, then find volunteers, train them, and hope they show up to each game.

Who's LBBC?
