Class A high school basketball in South Dakota is getting something Class AA has had for the past few years – a shot clock.

This week, the South Dakota High School Activities Association Board of Directors passed the addition of a 35-second shot clock in Class A basketball, effective the 2014-15 season.

Platte-Geddes boys’ coach Frank Cutler told the Mitchell Daily Republic the shot clock will have an immediate impact on the game:

I think it will take away the chance of an upset.

At times you’ll see teams play the clock to upset a more talented team, so we might not see as much of that with this.

But people like to watch games with more scoring and I think the fans will enjoy that.

Class B will be the only class without a shot clock in South Dakota.
