Shot Clock Ten Seconds ...

RULING: Correct procedure. COMMENT: When utilizing the 35-second shot clock to administer the 10-second backcourt count, the 10-second count shall begin when the ball touches or is legally touched by a player on the court. When a shot clock is not being used, the 10-second official’s count begins when A20 gains control. (Shot Clock – State Association Adoption)[/I]
I'm pleased to see the NFHS clarifying the possession rule in non-shot clock games and the touch rule in shot clock games.
