It is an approved ncaam mechanic this year.

If the L is handling the throw-in on the sideline below the FT line the T will count and chop. L does not count or chop.
That is not the same situations. That only applies to if the ball is below the FT line extended and the Lead is supposed to bounce the ball on the sideline and the Trail is supposed to give the count and shot in the time. That is completely different from what NCAA Women's Mechanics do. The Trail chops in the clock if the ball is on the sideline or the endline. Not the same thing. This is the only time (if you want to really compare) when the Trail would chop in the clock during Men's games. This is a very narrow senario. In the conference I work, we were told not to use this mechanic. The assignor wants us to either bring the ball above FT line extended or to just have the Trail administer the throw in.
