I thought that I read on this forum a week or two ago that when you're using the shot clock, there is no 10 second count. At a D1 mens game Saturday, I watched, more than once, as the official counted until the player crossed the mid-court line. The player brought the ball across unopposed, so it wasn't any kind of closely guarded count (which I don't think can happen in back court anyway, can it?). Am I wrong? Do you still have a 10 second count, even with the shot clock?

I believe it was stated that NBA officials use the shot clock and do not count.

I don't recall not seeing any college officials not counting.

Here in Washington State, there is no 10-second backcourt count in girls high school games due to the 30-second shot clock. Those rules have no bearing on a college game however.

BITS,
It depends on whether the game is mens or womens. Men have the 10-sec count. I believe the women do not.

I think you are right, Nevadaref. I dug back through the old posts and discovered that the information was specific to Womens ball.

BTW, where are you from? I spent time in Elko, Carson City, and Las Vegas when I was young.

NCAA men have a 10 second backcourt count. Men's officials will (generally) swing their arm for show, but when the shot clock hits 25 is when they'll put air in the Fox 40.

Women have no backcourt count, although fans (and the occasional coach) will scream when the clock hits 20, but they have 5-seconds closely guarded while holding the ball anywhere on the court.
