High schools reluctant to add shot clock
The groans grew louder as the seconds ticked by without a shot, magnified by the small crowd in the Ben Davis gym for a first round Marion County tournament game between the hosts and Franklin Central.
"Play ball!" one female fan shouted.
"Your own fans are yelling, 'Shoot the ball!' " another man yelled.
A few fans joined in unison with a "This is Billig Viagra Danmark boring!" chant before one turned to another and said, "We need a shot clock."
INSIDER: More thoughts on a shot clock in high school basketball
Does high school basketball need a shot clock? There are currently eight states that use some variation of a shot clock, which has been a staple of the NBA since the 1954 55 season (24 seconds) and the men's college game since 1985 86 (45 seconds, changed to 35 seconds nine years later). But in Indiana high school basketball, the game remains the same: four quarters, eight minutes apiece, no shot clock.
"As a coach, you determine if you want the game to be a long possession or short possession game," said Ben Davis coach Mark James, who was the target Viagra For Sale Brisbane of some Franklin Central fans' frustration in the Flashes' 40 38 overtime win on Tuesday.
"You can press, trap, foul or do what you want to get the game sped up. I'm sure it was an interesting game to watch if you like "Buy Cheap Jintropin Online" basketball. If you don't like basketball, it was probably boring. There was a lot of chess going on."
An informal survey of area coaches seems to indicate that there is not a high level of interest currently for adding a shot clock. But the topic does come up on occasions like Tuesday, when Ben Davis held the ball for more than two minutes at the end of one quarter and played at a methodical pace most of the night.
From a national level, there is little momentum for mandating a shot clock. Theresia Wynns, director of sports and officials education for the National Federation of State High School Associations, said a proposal for a shot clock comes up almost every year. So far, the Basketball Rules Committee has voted against it.
"There is not an overwhelming sense "Buy Cheap Jintropin Online" that the game needs the shot clock at this time," Wynns said. "Basketball in the state of Indiana does not need to step up the tempo. Other states feel the same way. They want the coaches to be able to determine the style of play that is best for the teams they have on the floor."
Advantage for offense?
Of the 47 "buy cheap jintropin online" area high school boys and girls basketball coaches surveyed, only 11 were in favor of a shot clock and four undecided.
Cathedral coach Andy Fagan is among those strongly in favor of a shot clock, citing an unfair advantage allowed to the offense.
"I don't care how good of a defensive team you are or how well conditioned or tough you are, at some point you are going to break down," he said. "Teams that are talented and disciplined can effectively hold the ball for 35 seconds and at some point in time you are going to break down. It's an unfair advantage for teams that want to play that way."
Fagan points to another factor that actually played a role in the college game adding a shot clock: entertainment. The Sun Belt Conference added a 45 second clock in 1978 79 after its conference tournament championship in '78 was decided by a 22 20 score.
"When a family spends $40 on tickets, food and beverages, a 22 20 game won't make them happy," then South Alabama coach Cliff Ellis told Sports Illustrated in 1982. "We're in the entertainment business, and that's not entertainment."
There's also little "buy cheap jintropin online" doubt that the players prefer a more free flowing style of game. Franklin Central senior Jacob Malone was on the floor playing defense Tuesday night during the lengthy Ben Davis' possessions.
"It's definitely boring because we just had to kind of stand there waiting for something to happen," Malone said. "At the end we had to kind of force the tempo because they were just going to hold the ball the whole time. But we knew that's how they were going to play."
Cathedral senior Matt Gregory said the Irish became accustomed to seeing a lot of opponents slow Viagra For Sale In Perth the tempo last season. Cathedral was an immensely talented and deep team last year that advanced to the Class 4A state finals before losing to Carmel.
"Some of our losses last year we definitely got slowed down," Gregory said. "I'd like to see the games sped up so you can see the talented players play. But disciplined teams with good ballhandlers can pretty much do what they want. With a shot clock, it takes a little strategy out Kamagra Generic Viagra of the game and makes it more talent driven. I think it would make it more fun for the fans."
