HS Shot clock

Monday we had a big state wide HS meeting about our first year with the 35 second HS shot clock.

It was decided that once it hit 24 it was a violation not 25.

The next day a retired NBA official watched a game where the coach tried to use that training when a violation was called at 25.

The discuss was surrounding 24.9. Like when a shot clock uses tenths of a second.

Which most of ours do not use. That still doesnt make any sense to me at all. I wondering if someone here who has used a tenths of a shot clock could explain this whole mess.

Thanks!

Using tenths of a second is not the factor here. Clocks that read a number can involve tenths of a second before it turns to the next number. The NBA does not display tenths of a second until under 5 seconds. But the clocks in reality if the clock said 24 seconds, it is likely less than that. So the violation really should be 25 or you are giving them actually more time.

Peace

(Most) shot clocks operate differently than (most) game clocks.

The shot clock shows 25 but doesn't switch to 24 until a full second has elapsed. The horn will sound (nearly) immediately when the clock shows zero. The "real" time remaining is between .0 and .9 LESS than what is showing. When the clock shows 25, the te4am has had 10 full second in the back court and a violation should be called.

The game clock show 8:00 and switches to 7:59 (well, with .1 seconds) immediately when it starts. The horn won't sound until a second after the 0:00 shows. The "real" time remaining is .0 to .9 HIGHER that the time in the display. When the clock shows 7:50 (say on a throw-in to start Q2, Q3 or Q4) the team has had 9 to 9.9 seconds in the BC and a violation should not be called (ignore the FED admonition against using the clock for a BC violation here)
