: : Thise states that host national tournaments should compliment a shot clock.
: why should they provide a shot clock? The state of Florida doesn't have a shot clock, and I'm sure they have to follow state governing body rules & only 5 or so states have a shot clock, so we are going to provide a shot clock for a couple teams, when most of the teams in the tourney don't use one???
: It isn't MD's 1st time playing in the tourney with no shot clock...
It's my opinion that since every level of play many high schools, college, pros, utilize a shot clock. It keeps the games moving, provides for better competition and pushes teams to shˇot. If you are having teams come in from a variety if states it would be more attractive to Emily a shot clock for tgat Tiurney. Yes MD has played in this tournament many times as well as other places tgat don't use a shot clock, but that doesn't mean it couldn't change.
