I don't care what the rules are. I just call'em based on what the FED decides.

All games would be five minute running time quarters.

Snaqs

This has nothing to do with the OP but I just noticed Snaqs new tag line. Honestly, I am in tears.

Also, for NFHS, allow players to enter the lane on a free throw after the release.

The current rule does make the rule about not faking the free throw attempt a bit redundant doesn't it?

Not gonna happen.

With entering on the release, there's too much unnecessary contact and jockeying for position on MADE free throws. They've gone to great lengths over the past 10 years to cut down on such play. Changing the rule would be a complete change in philosophy.

I would say no timeouts even if the ball is dead if the clock is running.
