The emotions about the 1976-77 collegiate basketball sea
son should be less tense now. And, there may be no better, time
than now to entertain practical proposals for introducing or
modifying rules to help the 1977-78 season Improve over, the
pastpne,,, .t'l I. :r -
In review, many new faces contributed to many teams being
more competitive last season. SO, it is reasonable for teams next
year to go all out (within the rules) to acquire freshmen and
junior college transfers to. strengthen their (the schools) pro
grams. The "dunk" was brought out of the closet, and it was a
tremendous boost to the games, whether won or lost, Let's not
junk the dunk ever again. Again, in the 1976-77 season, we did
not see the 30-second offensive clock. And, although it promises
to be one of the most helpful improvements, to the college
game, it probably will not be introduced in the upcoming sea
sort: :-; , ' ,
Without comparing basketball to other sports where there is
a. time limit for the offense to advance or attempt to score, the
paradox; of the present .time rules of collegiate basketball give
birth to discussions concerning having an offensive clock. At
present, the collegiate rules call for: f
1 . A 5-serond limit for the offense to throw the ball inbound
2. A 10-second limit for the offense to, advance past mid
court 'i .,. - ::
3. No time limit for attempting to score a basketball, and
4. A 40-minute time limit for scoring til points (game limit).
There is consistency in the time limits for throwing the ball in
bounds and advancing the ball past mid court. Both rules aim at
forcing the offense to do something or give the ball up. The
breakdown In rules consistency occurs after the offense gets on
it's offensive half of the court, where the rulemakers appear to
be satisfied with the offensive team sitting on the ball. That is
what too many teams did this year. Even one team doing it is
The name of the game is b-a-s-k-e-t-b-a-1-1. Not dribble-ball,
nor passing-ball, or even hold-the-ball. The ultimate goal (you
can't get away from the word or concept) is to score as many
points as you can at your offensive goal, while trying to limit
(defensively) your opponent to fewer points at it's offensive
goal, within a time limit. Such an approach fosters better
offense and defense.
Some argue that such a time limit as a 30-second clock would
produce run and gun basketball. And, it is said, that the skills of
dribbling, passing, and team-play would deteriorate. FalsenessH!
The time limits for throwing the ball inbounds and advancing
the baU past midcourt have somewhat forced an Improvement In
dribbling, passing; and team play. A 30sccond clock, or a 60
second clock as was suggested by somedne recently would
more force Improvements In the skills of the game than impair
them. Notice that the present S-second limit on dribbling man-to-man
more impairs than helps dribbling skills; another para
dox. " . ...t: '.. i ; ,. "
Ut's get on with the name and goals (!) of the game. Better
offense forces better defense. The better coaches wfll field the
better teams, and will win as long as the rules are the same for
both teams. But, falr.rules are needed. A rule is not fair if it is
vnot consistent with related, rules of the same game.
