The VHSL in action

Apparently, the powers that be in Charlottesville have been hard at work. The Richmond Times-Dispatch had this article in today's sport page.

1)VHSL announces a basketball slaughter rule.

2)State basketball semifinals to move away from Siegel Center.

3)VHSL votes to pull most state championship events from Liberty University.

From the article: "If one team leads by 30 points or more in the fourth quarter, the clock will run except during timeouts, free throws, injuries and technical fouls. If both coaches agree, the running clock can begin at any point during the third quarter."

Thirty points is more reasonable than the 40 points rule we have here.

Update

The point spreads of 3 of my first 4 games (all GV) last season were 30, 40, & 60. I'm looking forward to this addition.

Giving districts a choice is not a wise move.

I don't get many blowouts of this level. But, when I do, it would be nice to get home early.

I don't usually either, but it all occurred at the beginning of my season. I can only remember one other game that was that big of a blowout.

Missouri has adopted 30 in 4th quarter. Our local big city junior high does 25 after half. There are lots of times that has come in handy

Maybe because it is centrally located in state and has fantastic facilities for high school post season structure and events

And some people don't make every decision in their lives based on politics.
