Temple loses to Penn State in NIT

(PMM) #1

Looking at the box score…they played 4 quarters instead of 2 halves.

When did that start ?

(Matt Jackson) #2

NIT always runs experimental rules. 4 10 minute quarters, 5 fouls a quarter for bonus, wider lane, and I think a different 3 point line as well. I would not be shocked to see the quarters rule trickle down since it is already used in the women’s game.

Yep, they did that to us last year when they reset fouls at the 10 minute mark.

Wish they would do this in preseason tourneys or something. Makes no sense to do it in the postseason.


That rule would have been very helpful to us this year!
