Stevens Point (WQOW) -- The WIAA Board of Control approved a number of regulation changes to winter sports at its meeting Thursday, including the adoption of a "mercy rule" in high school basketball.
The change includes a running clock that starts once a team gets a lead of 40-points or more after the third quarter. The clock will then only stop during a timeout. The WIAA says the change promotes a more level playing field and says similar rules are already in place in other sports.
