I can understand going to halves, MA also plays halves. But why lengthen the game? That's 4 extra minutes per game. 20 games a year. That's 80 extra minutes, almost 3 more games per season, than before. Why do that? Eventually, it's going to screw up all your state scoring/assist/rebound records.

BTW, the NFHS will be none too happy with this decision. Playing halves -- not the shot clock -- is why the FED won't let a MA representative chair the rules committee. Minnesota will also be sanctioned, I'm sure.
Any NCAA rules and interpretations in this post are relevant for men's games only!
