VIDEO: Shot clock controversy strikes prep hoops in Florida

<param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/SGX5LROeIsc&hl=en_US&fs=1&

At the end of regulation, Haines City and Sebring were tied 65-65 down in the Sunshine State.

Haines City won the opening tip in overtime, then proceeded to hold for the final shot, running the clock down nearly the entire four minutes before winning on a putback attempt at the buzzer.

If you remember, in April the Representative Assembly of the WIAA passed a shot-clock amendment by a 42-11 vote, making Washington the seventh state with such a rule.

For those of you who have attended a boys basketball game already in this early season, what are your thoughts on the change? Especially in light of this game’s finish.
