And the game rolls on

I'm sure we've all seen teams roll an inbound pass in to delay the starting of the clock. Yesterday, I had a team do it twice, neither time making sense. Both times were late in the game and they were down by about 5 points. The first time, the were inbounding on the endline after a made basket, so the clock was running anyway! The second time, a spot throw-in, again on their endline in backcourt. A1 rolls it in, A2 walks along side of it. The ball gets almost to the division line when B1 runs over, grabs the ball and goes in for an uncontested layup! Neither A1 or A2 even moved when this happened.

One Rec League I do has a running clock until the last two minutes of the game. I see the kids do the "rolling ball inbounds play" to preserve the clock all the time..... funny!

Someday, they'll figure it out....or not!
There was the person who sent ten puns to friends, with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in ten did.
