Middle School Rule Differences. In middle school basketball, students usually play a shortened game. For instance, in the National Basketball Association, players challenge each other over the course of four 12-minute quarters, with a 15-minute halftime.

Basketball Rules Changes - 2021-22. By NFHS on May 14, 2021. 2-14 (NEW): By state association adoption, effective with the 2022-2023 season, member state associations may establish a shot clock in which the team in control shall attempt a try for field goal within 35 seconds after gaining team control. ART. 1 This shall be regulated by a visible shot clock.
Basketball Regulations. In basketball, there is a mandated continuous clock when one team gets a 25-point advantage over it's opponent in the fourth quarter. The clock would only stop for shooting fouls, timeouts, injuries, and the administration of technical fouls. The clock will continue to run for the remainder of the game, regardless if the point differential gets closer than 25-points.
If a basket, or field goal, is made outside of the three-point arc, then that basket is worth three points. A free throw is worth one point. Free throws are awarded to a team according to some formats involving the number of fouls committed in a half and/or the type of foul committed.
Clock Stoppage: Stopping the clock following a made basket within the last two minutes of the fourth period and any extra periods for 12-14 year-olds and 9th-12th graders allows for additional strategic decision-making. Fewer clock stoppages for 7-8 and 9-11 year-olds allows for a better game flow.
