I so wanted to....

whip out my rule book.....

Girls Varsity last night. We were down by 4 late in the 4th quarter shooting 2 at the line. A1 misses the first.

I (at the last second) decide I want to change from our zone press to a M2M press. So I call a time out just as A1 starts her habitual pre free throw dribbles. She stops and looks at me, trail is still counting and lead is now looking at me like I am from Mars.

Couple seconds go by and I verbalize and signal again. Lead finally huffs over to me and says "we're in the middle of a FT coach". I said "yeah duh, MY free throw!" (Ok I didn't really say the duh part....)

A1 is still holding the ball and Trail comes over to join the party. They discuss and grant me the TO as last because I already "interuppted the game long enough."

Do you actually have a rulebook at the game ? I would be impressed. Around here its a stretch for an occasional coach that even knows the color of the book,nevermind whats in it....

That was close. I thought you were going to say something else.

I had a coach last week that losing by 20 points calls a time out with under 2 minutes to play.

Oh, that's not all, with under a minute to play he calls another still down by about 20.

Then with 9 seconds left, he calls another, still down by about 20 points....I got his point, he had all night and 5 time outs. We granted them all.

Does a ref have a choice in granting or not granting them?

As a coach, I wonder if he was trying to get people in or was using it as a teaching opportunity?

From the tone of the post it sounded like he was trying some kind of head games....Puhleeze I got all night and into the morning if thats how long it takes to finish the game. Take your time outs and I'll look at the mommys.

PS if thats the best he's got he needs to spend a weekend with my wife and her 4 sisters. That will have your head spinning.
