Experiment. Try using a conch. If you're unfamiliar with Lord of the Flies, get a physical object that you can pass around easily. Only the person holding that can speak. If the problem persists, make the object slightly heavier to the point where it's fine to hold, but gets heavier the longer they talk.

Now, for the scrum flavor, bring it up in the retrospective meeting and take the teams pulse on how to make it more efficient and worth their time. Get feedback. Try some suggestions out. Then discuss it in the next retrospective. The bottom line, not everything is a one size fits all solution and it's best to experiment until you find the best one.
