Mercy rule for high school hoops, other changesSubmitted: 06/20/2013
Story By WIAA

STEVENS POINT - High school basketball fans will get some relief from that 84-26 snoozer in the fourth quarter starting next season.

The WIAA approved a number of reccomendations for winter sports at a meeting today.

In basketball, a mercy rule has been added for varsity games during the regular season and throughout the Tournament starting this winter.

Teams will play on a running clock once the lead for one team reaches 40 points in the fourth period.

The running clock will continue through the end of the game no matter the score.

In hockey, the maximum game limit changed from 20 to 24 beginning next season.

In wrestling, the Division 1 semifinals will be moved from Saturday morning to Friday at 7:30 p.m., which will follow the quarterfinals.
