IHSAA, IGHSAU implement 35-second shot clock for high school basketball

The Iowa High School Athletic Association and Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union on Tuesday announced the implementation of a shot clock in high school basketball.

The IHSAA and IGHSAU will implement a 35-second shot clock during the 2022-2023 season.

“Use of the shot clock in sub-varsity competition will be allowed but not required. With a date set for statewide implementation, experimental exceptions will not be granted during the 2021-22 regular season,” IHSAA said through a news release. “To encourage standardization among states, 35 seconds was the timing provided by NFHS approval. Further shot clock information and rule implementation will be provided by IHSAA and IGHSAU as it becomes available ahead of the 2022-23 season.”

The IHSAA’s Board of Control unanimously voted the measure through at their annual summer meetings from Aug. 5-7.
