No Shot Clock For Wisconsin High School Basketball – On Table in Minnesota?
After reports were saying that Wisconsin High School Basketball was going to implement a shot clock, but after a new vote, that is no longer!
According to this post from USA Today High School Sports, the WIAA Board of Control voted again to NOT implement a shot clock, 7-3. This is interesting because back in June the same board voted to implement the shot clock.
Now, Minnesota has not had a serious vote on whether to implement a shot clock to high school basketball. The cost and training would just be too much, and frankly wreck the game.
The budget excuse has killed this measure many times, and it looks like that will continue. It is just one more thing for the official score keeper to keep track of, along with another rule for the refs to be trained on.
There is still momentum with this in Wisconsin, but it looks as if for now, we won't see the shot clock in the neighboring state.
