BOONE, Iowa – A shot clock is officially coming to Iowa high school girls and boys varsity basketball.
A joint statement from the Iowa High School Athletic Association and the Iowa Girl’s High School Athletic Union, released Tuesday, says the use of a 35-second shot clock will begin in the 2022-23 school year.
The IHSAA and IGHSAU say more information on the rule implementation for the shot clock will be provided at a later date.
Sub-varsity programs may use the shot clock as well, but it is not required.
The shot clock for college basketball is 30 seconds and in the NBA it’s 24 seconds.
