The WIAA Board of Control Thursday voted to implement a 35 second shot clock to high school basketball games beginning with the 2019-2020 season. The change applies to varsity games only. The board also approved seeding of state tournament teams in all five divisions for basketball and for team state wrestling. Seeding for both basketball and wrestling will be done by coaches of teams who qualified for state and begins next season. Also, the WIAA will sponsor two divisions in the boys hockey playoffs for a two year trial run beginning in 2020.
