We got that in Virginia, but not for playoffs. My buddy is a coach, and of course the very reason we adopted a slaughter rule takes place during his game: Team B is getting beat by 40 in the 2nd half. Kid B takes exception to it. Commits an intentional foul on a break away lay-up, injures Starter A, who now has to limp off the court. If they just let the clock run (and the coach called off the dogs), we wouldn't have kids getting hurt when the game is already over.

It also amazes me when coaches say they don't want a mercy rule. No one is having fun beating a team by 30+ points. The kids end up watching the clock more than the game.
