SEC Coaches Approve Experimentation of 30-Second Shot Clock

SEC basketball coaches approved a recommendation to experiment with a 30-second shot clock during exhibition games in the upcoming season. The measure is expected to be rubberstamped by the athletic directors of the 14 league schools here at the league’s spring business meetings.

The Atlantic Coast Conference decided recently at its business meetings to approve the same experiment.

Currently, there is a 35-second shot clock in college basketball.

“It could be a positive, especially when talking about raising scoring, LSU coach Johnny Jones said. I think it will be something that might be fan-friendly, making the game more exciting. The decisions you have to make will be quicker, like making a quick read what your opponent is doing defensively.

“I’m not sure how much of a difference it will make with us, because we’re an uptempo team. There will certainly be adjustments for other teams.”
