Atlantic 10 to use 30-second shot clock in exhibitions
The Atlantic 10 Conference announced Monday that it will use a 30-second shot clock for men's basketball exhibitions played this season.
The conference was given permission by the NCAA to experiment with the new shot clock in two exhibition games per school. The standard NCAA men's shot clock has been 35 seconds since 1993, though women's college basketball already uses a 30-second shot clock.
The NCAA has been looking into the potential of using the shorter shot clock in the men's game, and A-10 schools will provide the organization with feedback and data after playing the exhibitions.
