Would anybody be interested in seeing the NCAA lower the shot clock to say 30 seconds?
There are only four answers to any question: Yes, No, I don't know, or the Correct Answer.
Sure. I like it.
Your team. All the time.
I know math shouldn't be a part of any message board, but just the change to 30 would be huge for possessions.
If my math is right
40 minutes equals 40x60 or 2,400 seconds. With 35 second shot clocks you can only guarantee 68.6 possessions. Obviously this number can be different depending on play style and nothing is this absolute.
At 30 seconds. It goes to 80 full shot. Clock possessions. That is 11.4 more possessions due to the shot clock change. That could easily lead to more scoring.
All of the above math is useless except for the number of added possessions which is 11.4. That is a lot of possessions.
Definitely. I'd love that change. Faster games are more fun to watch, and 30 seconds is more than enough time to run a play so I don't think the quality would suffer.
I'll do you one better: lower it to 24 seconds, NBA-style.
It won't happen, of course, so I'd be happy to see it 30 seconds.
I would be for this also. Anything lower would be better right now if you ask me.? When was 35 set as the time
