    NFHS says NO to national shot-clock mandate, NO to proposal by state adoption

    The NFHS oversees the KHSAA like the NCAA oversees the SEC.

    Suffice it to say, the NFHS sees no immediate need for a high school shot clock.

    Personally, I'm with them.
    In Kentucky, we can't even get on-field playclocks for football and there are far less fields/games to worry about using them.

    Plus, we gonna do it for JV and freshmen, too?

    From the link:

    A proposal for a national rule mandating a shot clock as well as a proposal to allow a shot clock by state adoption were not approved.

    “Information was given to the Basketball Rules Committee that shared the votes in individual states on how coaches and officials voted in support of or non-support of the shot clock rule,” said Theresia Wynns, NFHS director of sports and liaison to the Basketball Rules Committee. “The conversation among the committee members explored the pros and cons of enacting the proposal as a rule for all states and likewise for state adoption. The committee will continue to explore the shot clock issue.”

    Yep, no way to really work a shot clock in right now. We had the debate earlier this year on the board (and it happens every year) but good luck paying for them and then finding someone to operate it.
