    BB Rule Changes

    After watching far too many college games over too many years, here are five rule changes I'd like to see:
    1. Reduce the number of timeouts per team. Or reduce the number of "media" timeouts. They're just killing the flow of the game.
    2. Reduce the shot clock from 35 to 30.
    3. Eliminate the 5 second closely guarded rule. Why even have it in the first place?
    4. When a team takes the ball out of bounds in its own frontcourt, don't allow it to throw the ball into the backcourt. It punishes the defense.
    5. When a team in danger of a 10 second violation bringing the ball across half court calls a timeout, don't give them a new 10 seconds. They should only have whatever is left of the 10 seconds to get it across half court. Again, it punishes what was a good defensive effort.

    The weak Atlantic Coast Conference's leading scorer kept his impressive season going as Terrell Stoglin poured in 24 points to lead the Maryland Terrapins over the Boston College Eagles, 81-65, in a conference matchup at the Comcast Center.

    James Padgett netted 15 and Nick Faust added 14 for Maryland (15-10, 5-6 ACC) which had lost three of its previous four. Sean Mosely also chipped in 13 points for the Terrapins.

    BC 1 star recruit  Ryan Anderson posted a double-double with 22 points and 10 rebounds for Boston College (8-18, 3-9). Lonnie Jackson put in 19 and Dennis Clifford added 11 for the Eagles who have lost eight of their last nine.

    Maryland broke out to a 41-27 lead at halftime by shooting a solid 51.6 percent from the floor including 8-of-13 from three point range. Stoglin was particularly impressive scoring 19 of his game-high total in the opening period.

    The Terrapins cooled off and shot just 48.0 percent from the floor and missed all three attempts from beyond the arc but Boston College, a miserable team in the ACC at 8-18   failed to capitalize by converting on only 28.1 percent of its field goal attempts in the closing period.

    Maryland blocked eight shots in the game and outscored the Eagles 38-27 on points in the paint while holding a 39-31 edge on the glass.

    Gipper, did you neglect to read the headline for this discussion? It's about basketball RULES. Take your trolling somewhere else. Oh, and did you forget Maryland 78 - U of South Bend 71?

    I've been wishing for fewer timeouts for a long time.  I think the last 5 mintues or even 2 mintues, no matter what you get 2 TOs.  One full and one 30 second.  And as bad as the college game seems, its no where near as bad as the NBA....

    When you annotate comparative and superlative adjectives in this case, are you refering to BC athletic accomplshments?  Which is better described as, deplorable, distressing, lamentable, pitiful, and sorry! Please correct the Oxford English in the future!

    Perhaps you have not taken into account the NY Knickerbockers' phenom Mr. Lin for the past two weeks, or are you looking into your mondane life rehashing BC anecdotes with your depressing rebuttals?

    Princess Kate: What does this inane comment about Jeremy Lin have to do with anything? (See the headline: BB Rule Changes.) Do you have any thoughts about the topic at hand, or is it too much for your feeble brain to comprehend? Don't get me wrong, I saw Lin play twice in college and thought he had a chance to be a good pro. I wish him success, except against the Celts.
    Please define "MONDANE."

    momort: It's the whr/cheeroh/uofndking/postingking creature rearing its ugly head again. It doesn't or can't understand three syllable words so the word relevance is beyond its comprehension. And what do all of these IDs all have in common? Cutesy little icons. Go figure.
