Haha They were 2 of the top 100 teams in the nation

One of them are at #12, you have to put up more than 5 points a quarter!!

What if an NBA game was like that?

The closest thing to this that I've ever witnessed in regards to the NBA was when the Sonics and Bucks made the Payton/Allen trade. They happened to play each that night (weird coincidence) and none of the player who were a part of the trade played, and the Sonics won 59-58.

Crazy.

I don't expect anyone to agree with me here, but I think it would be fun as hell to watch a game line that.

Every basket scored would be huge. It would be like scoring a touchdown sorta.

Each possession lasting 2 mins would be crazy. Think about how much strategy is involved to finally score a basket haha.

It would just be crazy to watch a game where literally every possession mattered.

Works the same way for higher scoring playoff games that go down to the wire too. Unless the defense was absolutely incredible, I don't think I would enjoy such a low scoring basketball game.

if you read the article you see that the team that isn't ranked just held onto the ball to keep it close and it looks like it almost worked

Did anyone even read the article? The reason the score was so low was because Plano West HS held the ball for several minutes at a time.

Not surprising.

HS level is pathetic i mean.

for every player that gets to Nba there are 200000 that dont and only 10 or so out of them will make it to Ncaa level or foreign league level.

Your point? Apparently no one else realizes this or Yahoo wouldn't have written a ridiculous article and someone wouldn't have made this thread. I don't see what the big deal is.

So only 10 players out of 200,000 make it to the D-1 college basketball? And only one of those 10 make the NBA? Where did you find these amazing statistics? I'm amazed the NBA has 30 teams with 15 players apiece.

and exactly what is the point of this post?

regardless, it was a great strategy by the bad team. having already been blown out by the good team, they had 2 chances to win the game but couldnt.

in ny, at least when i was in hs, theres no shot clock for boys games, but there is for womens bc if not, the game would be boring as hell.

I think that is true of the majority of the country. I can't think of a single state that has a shot clock for high school.

there aare around 300 american players in the nba.

there are 300 Million american citizens.

so 1 in a million americans make it to the league.

its fair to asume that almost the WHOLE population goes to HS at some moment.

Fair to assume that 1/5 of those people chose basket.

So, funny but its very probable that the random stat i threw out there may ACTUALLY be close to real.

How? The reason the game was low scoring was because there wasn't a shot clock.

I think nowhere in teh universe does the shot clock get used in boys games ( except for international competition of under x years players like junior world cup and etc)-

BUUUUT still a very low score in that game.

Minnesota has been experimenting with the use of a shot clock actually for high school games.

No it's not. You're numbers aren't even close and you're rambling again. Here are some real numbers.

There are roughly 7400 high schools in the United States, as of 2007. There are usually three high basketball teams; freshman, junior varsity, varsity. 12 players per team. 36 players per high school. 266,400 total high school basketball players.

There are 347 D-1 basketball teams. 12 players per team. 4,164 total basketball players. 30 NBA teams. 15 players per team. 450 NBA players.

Based on these numbers, about 262,000 high school basketball players don't play D-1 basketball. About 261,500 D-1 basketball players don't play in the NBA.

Everyone in the NBA has a high school education so I don't see what that matters. But you're right, not everyone in the NBA is American, but 65 percent of the league is and it's impossible to make a solid and accurate measurement of the league without wasting hours of my life. The point is, your numbers where the crap thrown at the wall hoping to stick and I did some basic research to find your numbers to be way off.

as i said teh exact numbers is nto what matters whatg matters is that most of h.s players wont get far because the wide majority of them are simply crap, so low scores are to be expected specially with no shot clock, but in this cas eits particualry a low score.

The maturity of high school players has far less baring on this game than the lack of a shot clock. Both schools that were involved are nationally recognized with top 100 prospects. The lack of a shot clock is what determined the outcome.
