Survey Reveals Missouri High School Basketball Not Ready For The Shot Clock

A recent survey reveals that Missouri High School Basketball is not ready to implement a shot clock. Doug Fessler, MSHSAA Assistant Executive Director, gives us the results….

A past survey on the question asked both administrators and coaches. This time, it was one vote per school district. Fessler says rural areas were more heavily against the shot clock….

Fessler gives the main reason administrators are against the shot clock….

Fessler adds there are still school districts mainly in southern Missouri that use a two-person officiating crew, which makes adding shot clock responsibilities more difficult. He says about half the states use a shot clock in high school basketball.
