BASKETBALL ANNOUNCERS

The NFHS basketball rules committee approved an editorial change to the 2013-14 NFHS basketball rules book regarding announcers.

Rule 2-Section 18, page 15 states that "The announcer shall be prohibited from making announcements during the game, such as "two minutes to go." The editorial change was meant to eliminate commentary by announcers.

Officials have been instructed to allow announcers to continue to announce as they have in the past, unless the comments are inappropriate. For instance, simply announcing the name of the player who just scored the basket as play continues is appropriate.
