Hope It's Not a Sign

GJV opener last night...

73-1

Could be a long season....NFHS needs to adopt a running clock rule for basketball.

They already did in a sense. It is up to your state to adopt what they actually want to do with the current "mercy rule."

Peace

I live in Indiana (5 minutes or less from the Illinois border) actually. That being said, Illinois has a mercy rule for all regular season games that applies to 30 points leads in the 4th quarter. So the NF already has a rule, the IHSAA has to adopt one for their games. I do not work a lot of girls games, so very rare to get that kind of score you referenced. Heck even the 30 point rule might of happened once last year in a game I was officiating.

Peace

Existing NFHS Remedies Without State Approval ...

5-5-3: A quarter(s) may be shortened in an emergency or at any time
by mutual agreement of the opposing coaches and the referee. Playing time
and number of quarters for nonvarsity game quarters may be reduced by
mutual agreement of opposing coaches.


No running time, but there are some NFHS remedies that need not get state association approval.

This was a nonvarsity game, could have skipped some periods, and/or reduced the time in some periods. Don't need the permission of the state association, and in fact, don't even need the approval of the referee, just the two head coaches have to agree.

If it were a varsity game, one can't reduce the number of periods, but one can reduce the time in the periods. Don't need the permission of the state association, just need the approval of the two head coaches and the referee.

Your state can do that. Virginia has (with some stipulations).

It's weird that the 30-point rule is a district-by-district thing, and not a statewide adoption.

The OhioHSAA has a Mercy Rule but it only applies in the post-season tournament but not in regular season games.
