Richmond in the NIT ...

A 6 seed. Congrats. Bonnies snubbed again? Only 4 A10 teams in the NCAA/NIT.

Re: Richmond in the NIT ...

Not sure we were snubbed Dunga. No top 100 wins. You can make a case for every NIT team over us. Sadly, we beat the teams we were supposed to, but never beat the ones we shouldn't have. Which means.. we are who we thought we were! Haha. Dennis Green. But anyway, we didn't beat anyone. Lots of close but no cigar. Of course, we "beat" VCU but even that means we were like 1-[too many] against T100.

Yes, I don't think many people believe Bona was snubbed. Sadly, if that high school student doesn't collide with Gary Prager (forget the lost ball/security guard) with 0.4 left against VCU, we're probably NIT-bound at 21-11. Combine last year's unfortunate NIT cameo with one this year and whatever happens in 2018, and that's a nice little string of postseasons for a program on the rise.

Instead, Bona will watch March unfold from the couch, which includes CBI teams GW and GMU. So much for the narrative that the league doesn't want teams in the CBI. If no NIT, I'm personally fine with this disappointing team calling it a season, but that shouldn't be the program and administration's logic.

Especially in a disheartening season that failed to reach its potential, the program should want to extend its season with as many practices and valuable games against quality opponents as possible. It did in 2011, with Nicholson, Conger, Cook, and Matthew Wright coming back for 2012's NCAA Tournament team, so what gives now (see: budget/finance), with a nucleus returning for 2017-18?

Women's basketball has its media at/below the 5:00 mark of each quarter. There winds up being one fewer media break per half in the quarter system (5:00/0:00/5:00), which is a justification of enhanced game flow. Two foul shots occur at and beyond the fifth foul of each quarter, no more one-and-one.

Cuse plays unc Greensboro in the first round of nit. Committee humor at its near finest. The best today was finding providence was moved into the first 4 because uri won.

The women have had quarters since last year.

It's better. It makes a whistle-heavy game less of a free throw contest and more actual basketball.

Because the bonus is 2 FT after the 5th foul of each quarter, but it resets at the end of the quarter.

So if your team commits 16 fouls per half, one every 90 seconds:

Halves: 10:30 of bonus time per half, 26:00 total.
Quarters: 3:50 of bonus time per quarter, 15:20 total

No one wants to see a shitload of free throws, play some basketball.

Media breaks are just under 5 of each quarter (4) the end of the quarter (2) and the first coaches’ called timeout of the second half (1).

I don't think there are actual quarters. Play doesn't stop after 10 minutes, the fouls just reset mid-play.

It'll be quarters. All of these schools hosting -- And ESPN -- have been using the quarter format for women's basketball games the last two years.

When the women went to it, I was talking to some other STH for both MBB/WBB, and some staffers, and we all agreed that the men would probably adopt in 2 to 4 years.

Games are faster:
- less bonus free throw time.
- less officials confusion (no more 1 & 1s)
- one less media timeout.

TV loves it because they can fit the entire game in 2 hours without going over. And they can easily stretch the quarter breaks an extra minute each and run the same number of ads.

2 of the medias now come at obvious times (0:00) instead of interrupting the flow of play.

Embrace it.

Ok, instead of 4 timeouts per half, 1 per quarter, and 2 back to back between quarters...

Re: Richmond in the NIT ...

They are also introducing only using a 20 second shot clock when the ball is inbounded in the front court. International basketball has been using this and I love it. There is no reason for teams to have a 30 second shot clock when they inbound under their own basket. It will create more possessions and change the end of game strategy a bit too. Expect to see this in the mens game soon as well.

Re: Richmond in the NIT ...

Can we all give a collective hug to Jim Boeheim and his team? He's on Mike and Mike and Golic asks him if it is frustrating that the committee changes the criteria that they value when selecting teams.

Yes Jimmy. It's frustrating. And, I feel bad for your players, too.

Are you sure? I was under the same impression as mm4cc, based on the wording in the announcement:

Quote:
The committee believes resetting the team fouls to zero at the 9:59 mark of each half may have the same effect as resetting the team fouls to zero at the end of each quarter, while at the same time allowing for men’s college basketball to retain the unique format of two 20-minute halves.
The way I read it, the clock will not stop at 10:00 to signal the end of a quarter. Only the fouls will reset as play continues.
