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. Middle school players, in contrast, play quarters that last seven or eight minutes long.
