Prior to the 2020-21 season, the Georgia High School Association approved a phase-in of a 30-second shot clock for all varsity boys and girls
basketball games, becoming the ninth state to adopt a shot clock.
The Peach State joined California, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota and Washington as the only states to use a 30- or 35-second shot clock.
Guidelines approved by the NFHS include displaying two timepieces connected to a horn that is distinctive from the game-clock horn, and using an alternative timing device, such as a stopwatch at the scorer’s table, for a shot clock malfunction. The guidelines also allow for corrections to the shot clock only during the shot-clock period in which an error occurred and the officials have definite information relative to the mistake or malfunction.Although a proposal for a national rule mandating a shot clock was not approved, the ruling is likely to bring momentum to the shot-clock movement across high school basketball.
According to the most recent NFHS High School Athletics Participation Survey, a
total of 540,769 boys participated in basketball in 18,617 schools,
and 399,067 girls participated in the sport in 18,210 schools across the
country. It is the third-most popular sport for boys and girls.

MaxPreps lists the Top 10 active win streaks to start the 2021 season, along with the addition of Jesuit (Tampa, Fla.), which has already started its season and has moved up among the top 10 active win streaks.
1. Webster (Wis.) — 37
Led by former MLB pitcher Jarrod Washburn, the Tigers have won back-to-back state championships, but haven't played since 2019. Webster won 30 games in 2019 and the last seven games of the 2018 season to build a 37-game win streak. Webster had the third-longest win streak entering last season behind Silo (40) and Blanchard (39), both of Oklahoma. Webster doesn't play until April, but it returns all-state selection Owen Washburn, the coach's son, who batted .561 as a sophomore in 2019.
2. Andrean (Merrillville, Ind.) — 35
The Fighting 59ers won the 3A championship in 2019, losing the second game of the season and then winning 35 in a row. Coach Dave Pishkur went over 1,000 career wins during the 2019 season and also became the all-time winningest coach in Indiana. Andrean doesn't open its season until late March.
3. Center Moriches (N.Y.) — 32
Like Webster, the Red Devils have a winning streak that extends into the 2018 season. They won their final five games of the 2018 season to win the Class B state championship. They then went 27-0 in the 2019 season to win the crown again. Center Moriches did not play in 2020.
4. Colonel Richardson (Federalsburg, Md.) — 24
Last year was supposed to be another stellar season for the Colonels as they returned half of the starting lineup from a club that went 24-0 in 2019 and won the Maryland Class 1A state championship. They never took the field, leaving it up to the 2021 team to extend the nation's fourth-longest active win streak.
5. (tie) Elkhart (Kan.) — 22
The Wildcats edged Marion 3-2 in the Kansas Class 2-1A state championship game. Elkhart finished the season 22-0, but it did not play in 2020. The Wildcats are scheduled to begin their season on March 29.
5. (tie) Appoquinimink (West Middletown, Del.) — 22
The Jaguars went 22-0 and captured the 2019 state championship. They were one of the favorites again in 2020 with Gatorade State Player of the Year Lorenzo Carrier leading the way at shortstop. He returns for his senior season 2021 to help the Jaguars extend their streak.
7. Jesuit (Tampa, Fla.) — 21
The Tigers won their final eight games of the 2019 season to a capture a Florida state championship. Jesuit started the 2020 season with a 9-0 record and is the only team on this list that played in 2020. The Tigers, ranked No. 1 in the nation by MaxPreps to start 2021, is off to a 4-0 start. The Tigers take on Venice, the team Jesuit beat to start the streak in 2019.
8. (tie) Lisbon (Lisbon Falls, Maine) — 20
The Greyhounds went undefeated in winning the Class C state championship in 2019. Lisbon did not take the field in 2020 and is not expected to play again until April.
8. (tie) Gateway Christian (Roswell, N.M.) — 20
The Warriors simply dominated in 2019, winning games by an average score of 14-1. Twice, Gateway scored over 30 runs in a game. The Warriors won the Class A state championship, but they did not play in 2020.
8. (tie) St. Mary Prep (Orchard Lake, Mich.) — 20
The Eaglets actually started the 2019 season with a 7-9 record, but they won 27 of their final 29 games with two ties. Thus St. Mary Prep has a 29-game unbeaten streak with 20 straight wins in a row. St. Mary Prep did not play in 2020, but is ranked by MaxPreps as the top team in Michigan for the 2021 season.
11. White River Valley (Royalton, Vt.) — 18
The Wildcats have the distinction of never having lost a baseball game in the school's history. That's because the school began play in 2019 and went 18-0 with a Division 3 state championship. White River Valley lost one starter from the 2019 team, but did not play in 2020.
