Only Vermont would think of having no shot clocks in basketball. Unbelievable! :blink:

GA doesn't have any either. But that doesn't keep them from the breakneck basketball that we've come to know and love

AFAIK, Massachusetts is the only New England state to actually use the shot clock. Connecticut, I know for a fact, doesn't.

I think it'd be easier to put together a list of which states mandate it for basketball than the ones that don't, only because there probably aren't that many. Shot clocks aren't cheap, and don't forget, you need one for each basket. That's easily about $4000 coming right out of the school budget - money that can go into the back pockets of the administrators - oops, I mean, be spent on books. :D

[EDIT: Did a little research and saw a shot clock on eBay for $1849. New. Adjusted the money amount accordingly.]

Why wouldn't you just foul the team stalling? You'd send them to the line, but you'd get the ball back.

I don't think Illinois has one either. I can remember our team holding the ball for at least a minute at the end of halfs or the game.

I was once on a team that scored 4 points, I had 2. Unfortunately the other team scored 87. And we weren't trying to slow it down.

I should also mention the other team had David Wingate, Reggie Williams, and Mugsy Bouges on it.

i think the only shutout in basketball was in girls high school basketball a few years ago. a team from sacramento won by a score of something like 162-0. i think california does have a shot clock. i heard it on the news and still to this day i have never been so shocked at a sports story.

Shot clocks.

Not exactly true. I'm an IAABO and CWGBO official and referee approx. 60 games each season in both girls and boys.

Many schools I travel to have one sole shot clock.

Here in NY, the shot clock is used in both the Boys and Girls game.

That makes me think of how much I hate Broomfield High School's basketball team, here in Colorado. Last year, they were #1 or #2 in 4-A and my school was top 10, also... close game throughout, we led most of the way, but they got the lead late and suddenly, they stall for the last 6 minutes of the game. They pulled the same thing this year, too, I heard.

I've never seen basketball played with one shot clock... I imagine it's on the side. I'd imagine it takes some getting used to, if you're a player, but a little communication from the bench and teammates and I don't think it'd be too much of a problem.

this is why i don't like HS hoops as much as the college and pro games. Wisconsin schools, like most schools across teh country, don't use a shot clock. hence, you'll see stalling. i tell ya, the greatest contribution from the NBA.
