    Lack of scoring is because there is 0 mid-range game at the high D1 level. There is some at the mid-major and lower but then that is trumped by athleticism when they play the bigger guys.

    High-major college basketball is played within 5 feet of the rim or at the 3 point line.......that is it.

    Keep timeouts the same, but 2 must be used in the first half or you lose them. Commercial breaks only during called timeouts.

    (never happen)

    It's not as flashy as when players fly around and take bad shots. Part of he reason I'm really losing interest in college basketball.

    Shooting is work and becoming a really good shooter is even more work. Alot of kids want to play the game but not work on their game.
    I also think that besides dropping the shot clock to 30 seconds they should consider dropping the 10 second backcourt violation basck to 8 seconds like the NBA
    With all of the pressing in the collegiate game, that would probably exacerbate a lot of the "brute strength" and officiating concerns that you have with the current product. Lots more grabbing, holding, and hacking with a 20% reduction in getting it across the timeline.

    I was watching the Division II Championship and they were talking about the average scoring at that level compared to D1. It was substantially more a game. One of the more shocking stats I had ever heard actually. My hypothesis is that top level coaches at the top level have gotten the game catered to how they want it played, and it has trickled all through Division 1 since it is the same refs across the D1 spectrum.

    It is better basketball at that level. No there is not as many dunks/blocks/freak athletic plays, but the game is better.

    Well, it is official. The shot clock has been reduced to 30 seconds. No more timeouts resetting the 10 second back court violation. 4 foot arc under the basket. Coaches can no longer call live ball timeouts. 1 timeout less per game with only 3 being able to carry over. Women's game goes to 4, 10 minute quarters.

    If I am stuck in the backcourt and the count is at 8 or 9 I would attempt to throw the ball at the defender's feet and try to get a kicked ball call. What's the worst that can happen? And why no 10 count in Women's game?
