Highly unlikely. Word is the AAA will apply for another year to experiment with the shot clock, and the NFHS will allow up to 3 years for experiments.

That's the AAA for you.

The AAA has authorized usage of a 35 sec shot clock in n/c tournaments this season.  Already at least 2 I can think of have done it in recent years.

I know there is a big push coming from some schools.

I'm connected to the Bulldog Classic held in Fayetteville the first week of December and the plan is to have the shot clocks installed in both full size gyms for this event.  This tournament is 8 boys and 8 girls teams.
  UPDATE  This will not happen at this event this year.

Discussion stage has reached action stage in some cases.  Downside always involves cost for equipment and subsequently a solely dedicated clock operator



And THERE it is.

35 sec clock for 2020-21 in 6A is a done deal.

Other classes will vote on it case by case.

Be kinda interesting if every class but one agreed to having shot clocks

I had heard this was for conference play only and B.G.'s post did not clearly address this but will it also be for state tournament play as well?

And now the AAA board has approved for All classes for 22-23 season.

Still will need the overall vote later in the summer but there you go.

Best thing Iíve heard in a while! This is much needed. Itíll be interesting to see how quickly schools/Conferences/classifications start implementing it
