Should wnc high school basketball have a shot clock west la college makeup class

Two years ago, the two organizations created three groups focused on health and wellness, playing standards and curriculum and instruction. On tuesday, they announced their recommendations to "enhance the development and playing experience for young athletes," which included the addition of a 24-second shot clock to the high school game.

"Sometimes those teams who slow down the pace are considered boring to watch," stevens said. "We’re a fast-paced team, and I don’t think a shot clock would affect us very much."

NBA vice president of youth basketball development david krichavsky told USA today that it would positively change the flow of the high school game.

"It allows for more possessions for each team – and more development opportunities for each team,” krichavsky said.Carver said “it creates decision-making opportunities and puts them in the players’ hands as opposed to the coaches. The game flow is the biggest thing.”

The NCAA started using a 45-second shot clock for men’s basketball in 1985 and reduced it to 35 seconds in 1993. The 2015 college basketball season was the first with a 30-second shot clock.

Eight states, california, maryland, massachusetts, new york, north dakota, rhode island, south dakota and washington, currently allow unlimited use of a 30- or 35-second shot clocks.

In a survey taken by citizen-times readers, 64.3 percent of the 45,013 votes cast agreed that high school basketball should have a shot clock.

Enka coach brian carver is a member of the NCBCA and said the "room was split" when the possibility of adding a shot clock was entertained. Carver is a proponent of the shot clock.

"I think it would be good from the standpoint of strategy," carver said. "I’d like to see a team down by 1 with under a minute to go be able to play defense and not automatically try to have to steal the ball or foul."

Carver said he understands the apprehension for some coaches and programs who may struggle to deal with the financial burdens of adding shot clocks.

It’s the main reason why murphy athletic director and girls basketball coach ray gutierrez – also a member of the NCBCA – finds himself siding against a shot clock.

"In high school athletics, we don’t have the luxury of big budgets," gutierrez said. "Some are doing well just to break even.High school would it be hard to afford? Probably, especially for the smaller schools in our area."

“in addition to the fact that there is some concern about the costs associated with the use of a shot clock, the committee also expressed a belief that the game is typically played with an up-tempo style even without a shot clock,” said kent summers, director of performing arts and sports at the NFHS in 2012. “in addition, the committee believes that coaches should have the option of a slower-paced game if they believe it makes their team more competitive in specific situations. This could be especially true for smaller schools with limited budgets, which comprise a significant number of the 18,000 basketball-playing schools."

Local coaches like west henderson’s joey bryson believe a shot clock, however, would help better prepare high school players for the college game.High school

"When I went from high school to college, it was such a huge transition with a shot clock," bryson said. "With the NBA and college having one, I think it makes sense for us to have one too."

"I think more girls teams want to play at a slower pace in this area," carpenter said. "That’s going to force them to play faster than they want to play. I don’t see it as a bad thing for the game."

"I think we are gradually moving toward that," carver said. "More people are starting to see the merits, but there are still plenty of coaches who are against it."
