Just got back for the game. Quarters are way better than halves.

It's kind of crazy that men's college basketball still plays halves instead of quarters like every other organized basketball league in existence.

I’ve always watched more men’s CBB than women’s or NBA. So the halves vs quarters never seemed like a big deal to me. But the more women’s games I watch the more obvious it is that quarters are superior. Better game flow. The fouls and FT bonus. It just seems to make way more sense.

I have a sneaking suspicion the only real reason men's college basketball hasn't switched to quarters is they get an extra TV timeout, which means more money.

That’s easy to fix if it is the reason. Just have an under 6 and under 3 tv timeout per quarter and suddenly you have 5 timeouts per half (under 6, 3, qtr break, under 6, 3) instead of the current 4 (under 16, 12, 8, 4)

^^^ you're probably right, my dude

Quote :
"Why NCAA Men's Basketball Games Have Two Halves
After Naismith created the game, it was easy to see that two fifteen minute halves simply weren’t long enough for a high scoring, competitive game. In 1905, the rules were adjusted to what we now see in Men's NCAA basketball - two twenty-minute halves.

In 1951, the rules were changed again, resulting in each contest having four ten-minute quarters of basketball for both the NBA and NCAA. But in 1954, the NCAA went back to playing halves while the NBA simply kept the new four-quarter rule and added two minutes to each - resulting in the current twelve-minute quarters that still exist today.

Basketball writers and Twitter commenters alike have many theories as to why the NCAA switched back to the original two halves of basketball. The most prominent theory is simple, though...

It makes the game more competitive.

Longer halves means less stoppages during a game, leading to more scoring opportunities, a steady pace and flow, and closer games between a wider range of teams. Even in 1954, they were trying to help make the "Cinderella Stories" happen."


All of that has gone out the window with all the stoppages in play and inconsistent foul calls.

I, for one, would like to see four ten or twelve minute quarters in men's cbb.

A fan allegedly yelled a racial slur at the Tarheels as they entered.

This report says it was a State player that said it. Color me skeptical given UNC made the allegation a day after the loss, and have a history of trying to paint State in a negative light after a loss. I’ll wait for the investigation to conclude and more information to come out before I fully believe the allegation.

Hmm weird that Louisville player just screamed AND ONE on a play where no foul was called. I was under the impression that was a technical foul. Weird.

Hard to blame her bc she playing great defense on a tough match up but man Collins is struggling on the other end

Also two crazy offensive rebound situations ending with VT 3s. They're winning the 50-50 balls.

VT runs all these screen/rescreen sets getting their players wide open shots, seems like Wes relies on his 1v1 talent too often sometimes

they were going down low nearly every possession in the first half, and then they reverted to 1 v. 1, which worked for one run before half, and then the players seemed to think that would be the way to play the rest of the game

they were wrong
