Here's some good news in the ongoing quest to "fix college basketball": according to ESPN's Andy Katz, the NCAA will "likely" shorten the shot clock from 35 seconds to 30 seconds. Here's what Belmont head coach Rick Byrd, chair of the NCAA rules committee, had to say:
"Now there's a real decent chance," Byrd said. "It's pretty evident a lot more coaches are leaning that way. The opinion of coaches on the shot clock have moved significantly to reducing it from 35 to 30. And all indicators are pointing toward that."
The rules committee will meet in Indianapolis May 12-15 and can vote to change the rule. Do it! [ESPN]
