(9-22-20) The Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA) has decided for 2020-21 that during the pandemic high school basketball season all games will begin with a coin toss in place of the opening jump ball. The home team will make the call.

Another similarity to the football coin toss, the team which wins the coin flip will get the option of going on offense or defense.

Should a game go into overtime, the visiting team will call heads or tails and if the game goes into multiple overtimes, the ball goes to which team has the alternating possession arrow.
