At every D-1 game I've been to this year, the announcer has made an announcement that there is 1 minute remaining. Is there a purpose to this announcement?

Also watched Scott Thornley toss the opening jump from the edge of the jump circle. Interesting.

Last chance to "beat the crowd" to the snack bar?

Why is it two points to score a field goal? Who knows why? It is just something they do. I do not know if there is any major reason why.

Peace

Well since the clock stops on a made basket at 59.9 seconds and below...

My guess is that it is two-fold.

First, it mirrors the NBA requirement that the last 2 minutes is announced (a lot of announcers do NCAA & NBA ball).

Second, it indicates that the clock will stop on all made baskets.
