I always wondered about the quarter/half gender issue in college basketball. Thanks for the explanation.

For the record that came from JD Collins directly as to the issues with going quarters. It is not just my opinion on the matter. He has even stated where Men's basketball is different than Women's basketball from a financial standpoint so I want to make clear I am not talking out of turn here. Heard him say this stuff on more than one occasion.

Peace

Yes, there is something worse, seeing one on one isolation basketball, something that turned me off to NBA basketball many, many years ago (I was a big fan back in ancient times). NBA basketball was never better than those great Boston Celtics and New York Knicks teams of the 1970's (it has gotten slightly better the past few years).

Basketball is a team sport. Always was, always will be.

Yes, I'm well aware that of all the major team sports (basketball, football, baseball, hockey, soccer), some basketball teams may be successful in the long term (season) based on the outstanding individual skills and impact of a single player (one of only five on the floor), but it's still a team game. Team offense. Team defense. Teamwork.
