Their are possible changes coming to NCAA Basketball and are currently on display at the NIT Tourney this year.
- Reinstution of four 10 minute quarters.
- Resetting team fouls at the end of each quarter.
Obviously, these are good things for a team that wants to get up and down the floor and apply full court pressure on defense. You would most likely not have teams shooting bonus free throws for 10 minutes or more in a half.
One thing not currently on the menu of possible changes, but I believe should be especially after so many bad calls on full display during this years Tourney, not to mention throughout the entire season…Coaches Challenge.
The NCAA should find a way to implement a coaches challenge situation to get instant replay to resolve controversional / critical game changing calls and no calls during a game. At the end of the day the NCAA should want to do whatever they can to protect the integrity of the game.
The College game isn’t a terribly lengthy process in the first place and the resetting of team fouls each quarter will even speed it up, so a couple of stoppages of play each Half for a few minutes to review and make sure a play was called correctly shouldn’t be a time issue.
