  • The Lacrosse Shot Clock Debate

    Posted on October 31, 2014 by Lax World

    Lacrosse Shot ClockOne of the reasons why people love college basketball so much is the pace of the game. And a big part of this pace is the 35 second shot clock, in which teams possessing the basketball have either 35 seconds to score a basket, or rebound a miss. Should the shot clock expire, or the opposition snags a rebound, the opposition is awarded possession of the ball and takes their turn to score.

    To speed the pace of the lacrosse game, the NCAA lacrosse men's rules committee has been tossing around the idea of a shot clock for years. For reference, Major League Lacrosse (MLL) enforces a 60-second shot clock. In 2012, the NCAA rules committee - which meets once every two years - introduced a 30 second manual countdown, which was only enforced after the officials issued a stalling warning to the team possessing the ball. At the recent 2014 rules committee meeting, the committee took the shot clock a step further, requiring college programs to grandfather in a visible clock to account for the 30 seconds of time after the stalling warning.
