35 second shot clock

35 second shot clock

Post by Matthew Todd Gav » Sat, 11 Dec 1993 10:09:39


Anyone have any opinions on this??  I thought 45 seconds
was too much, but 35 is too little.  The 45 seconds was too long
at the end of the game, because teams could still effectively stall.
But I don't want to see the NCAA resemble the NBA, shoot-every-
eye-blink pace with no defense.

I guess I would've liked to see a 40 second clock instead,
and maybe convert to 35 the last few minutes or so.
I'm surprised the rules committe changed the clock to begin with,
there seemed to be no problem.

well, I have seen some long long half court offense sequences and
they still get the shot off in time.  Haven't seen a clock violation
yet.  So, I don't see the problem.  

Admittedly, I watch a team that would rarely hit the 24 sec period.

I want the 45second clock back.  35seconds is far too short.  It's
on the verge of being NBA.   Teams are forcing shots they normally
wouldn't take.  I like seeing good defense and good offense.  With
the shorter shot clock, all you see is run and gun.  

Billy Tubbs, OU's coach, wants a 15second shot clock.

In every game I've watched this year I've seen a sequence where
the offense appeared to run out of time because they weren't
expecting the shot clock to end so quickly.  It wasn't torrid
defense; they simply neglected to start attacking the basket
quickly enough.  I assume this is because it's the beginning
of the year and teams are adjusting.  We need to see a whole
year of play before we really know how great the impact is.

I agree that we need to wait the whole season to find out the
true impact; but right now(which I assumed the question was
about), I'd rather have 45seconds.

I like it.  35 seems about right to me.  I like to see the game move
(of course, ISU has always been a running team anyway).

I hate to see a team just sit and pass the ball all over the damn
place and just toss it up at the end, maybe get the ball back off a
defender and start bouncing it around another 45 seconds.

If the defense can't hack the action, they should lose. :-)

(And for heaven's sake!  DON'T change the clock length in the middle
of the game.)
