Oregon high school basketball is picking up the pace as a shot clock is coming.
The Oregon School Activities Association executive board voted Monday morning to approve a 35-second shot clock starting in the 2023-24 season.
The shot clock is only for varsity games.
Adding a limited time before having to shoot the ball significantly changes high school basketball in Oregon.
Those who like a fast, up-and-down pace won’t see much change to their strategy. But coaches who want to control the ball and wait for the right shot are in for a big difference, especially come the fourth quarter.
