The topic came up yet again Monday during the ACC coaches teleconference. Coaches were posed a question about what can be done to pick up the pace of college basketball games and improve scoring?
The answers were predictable. From a Louisville Courier-Journal article, Rick Pitino requested better definitions of how fouls are called (we tried that last year; it started working, but officials didn’t like being told how to officiate games and some coaches took offense to not being able to brutalize opponents defensively). And of course, Pitino made another call for a 30-second shot clock, of which Notre Dame coach Mike Brey said “I think there will be great momentum for” when the rules committee meets after the season.
