High school basketball games extended 4 more minutes
MONROE - Area high school basketball coaches contend they may lose some strategy time during breaks and may have to play more players off the bench after the WIAA Board of Control approved extending prep games by four minutes next season. On a one-year trial basis, the board approved a proposal Thursday to have the basketball game format switched to two 18-minute halves. Previously, high school basketball games used a four 8-minute quarter format.
