Athletic Directors may request the assigning (to any February games) of three-person basketball officiating crews at 85% (per official) of the GOC recommended fee.
This option was a recommendation to the Association from the MSBOA and has the support of the MIAA Game Officials Committee. This provides an opportunity for your basketball team and contest officials to become more accustomed to the officiating protocols that will be in place during the MIAA-sponsored tournaments.
NCAA Basketball Shot Clock Rule (as adopted by MIAA Basketball Committee): the shot clock rule is 2-11(modified to 30 seconds) in the NCAA Basketball Rulebook: 2-11 - art. 7 (f) - Stop the timing device and continue time without a reset when play begins under the following circumstances: (f) After any double personal foul; a double technical foul; or a simultaneous foul, play shall be resumed from the point of interruption.
EXCEPTION: When an intentionally kicked or fisted ball occurs reset the shot clock to 30 seconds.
The official scorer is required to wear a black-and-white vertically striped garment. Rationale: The players, coaches and officials need to be able to quickly and easily identify the official scorer. Requiring the scorer to wear a striped garment will assist in this regard. In addition, wearing a striped garment will make the scorer look more professional.
The MIAA Board of Directors has rejected the Basketball Committee recommendation to require of the home team effective with the 2013-14 season to comply with NFHS rule (3-4 Article 1-c) to wear a white jersey torso color. As a result, school basketball teams may continue to wear light color jerseys as the home team.
Time-Out Rule Change:
MIAA Rule 66.5 - Five 60 second time-outs may be charged to each team during a regulation game. Each team is entitled to one additional 60-second time-out during each extra period. Unused time-outs accumulate and may be used at any time.
Tournament Qualification: Please note that for the purposes of state basketball tournament qualification the MIAA Basketball Committee decided that a minimum of four teams are needed to constitute a league. However, exceptions were granted for the Big Three as “grandfathered” in the sport of basketball and the Central Division of the South Worcester County League – (voted 10/09).
