Shorter shot clock would ruin the game. I like watching BASKETBALL, not video games.
The beauty of college ball is the many styles. The clock does not stop a team that fast breaks but can be used by a team of plodders to win.
Leave it that way as looking all the same gets old.
There are a lot of different styles in the NBA and the shot clock is only 24 seconds.
Box and one, triangle and two, two three zone, one three one zone, man to man, full court press and that is just on D.
There are hundreds of college teams that have to use what they have. The NBA just doesn't have as many styles.
Don't want college ball to lose its innovation with time limits.
I get what you're saying, but the college game improved when the 35-second shot clock was implemented. There was nothing worse than watching UNC get a 3-point lead with 8 minutes to go and then watching Dean Smith call the 4-corners offense and stall until the end of the game.
A time limit helped.
To be fair, they went from no shot clock, to a 45 second clock, to a 35 second clock, all in the 80s.
The introduction of the shot clock was badly needed- Smith playing stall ball was ridiculous.
And I think going from 45 to 35 was an improvement. I just don't think we should reduce it further.
NBA players use the full 24 and don't panic even when the clock is at 1. College players begin to panic at 5, so a clock at 30 would give us short possessions. I'd rather give a team to try different things, pass that ball a lot, etc.
This would certainly benefit Donovan's style.
I'm only in favor of shortening the shot clock. That should greatly benefit Billy's style. Can you imagine how nasty the UCLA game would have been with that clock?
Are you sure there was ever a 45-second shot clock? I don't recall that at all.
I agree with the shot clock change and think it will improve the game.
i think 30 would be ok, but would be as low as they should go
http://lmgtfy.com/?q=45 second shot clock
85–86 season til moving to 35 seconds in 93-94.
Whew- thought my memory had gotten even worse.
Also- many conferences experimented with a shotclock in the 84-85 season.
The SEC had one (I think it was 45 seconds) that turned off the last 4:00 of each half.
The ACC had one as well but I don't remember how it worked.
A much needed change- I just don't want it less than 35 for reasons already stated.
Because the NBA doesn't play zone defense and the NBA doesn't press because you can't press talent guards. The other team would score 150+ points if they tried.
The NBA does have more offensive styles, though. Watch the games and they're always ahead of the curve of what NCAA teams are doing. We run a complicated offense with a lot of ball screens that still stalls out all of the time because of zones and players who just aren't talented enough or haven't been in the system long enough. In contrast, look at the Spurs. No one in the NCAA has an offense that pretty. It's basketball nirvana.
Teams played faster 20 years ago - 8 more possessions per team. Now they're willing to use the full 35. It's time to cut it down to 30. There's too much sitting on the ball. That's not innovation, that's less talent trying to stall their way to a win.
