NCAA Rules Chairman Says 30-Sec Shot Clock Likely

The chair of the NCAA Rules Committee, Rick Byrd, said Monday that men’s college basketball will likely reduce its shot clock from 35 to 30 seconds, according to ESPN.

Byrd, who is also the head coach at Belmont, will meet with the rest of the rules committee from May 12-15 in Indianapolis to review data from this past season regarding the rule change.

This past March, the NIT, CBI, and CIT all featured 30-second shot clocks in their tournaments. If the change is going to go into effect shortly, the committee will have to make the change this year as changes are only allowed to be implemented in odd years.
