    WHY WAS THE TIME CLOCK STARTED LATE FOR OLD ROY WITH 1.6 SECS LEFT IN THE GAME?

    At this level there should be no mistakes with the time clock as described by post game announcers. Delibersate attempt to get Old Roy a last chance? Makes you wonder. Please don't let that time keeper do our next game. Looked suspicious at best, should be no reason to start the clock late as shown on replay afterwards.

    Asked this earlier also: How many games does that make that OLD ROY has lost to ISU away from his home court?

    I agree. The clock work has been HORRIBLE this entire tournament. I feel like half the replays could be avoided if the clock operator could do their job right. It's every game.

    So if they would have shoot instead of calling time out, I assume that there is no clock review and the shoot counts, right?

    There's been clock mistakes in a lot of games in the tournament, and there's lots of mistakes in the regular season, it's just part of the game. Just be thankful that they can look at the monitors now and attempt to remedy errors like that now.

    They'd definitely look at it either way.

    Re: WHY WAS THE TIME CLOCK STARTED LATE FOR OLD ROY WITH 1.6 SECS LEFT IN THE GAME?

    My point is the refs had to basically use a stopwatch to determine the game was over today. The clock should have started on the inbound and it's disappointing that the clock operator can't do their job at that point in the game when it's crucial.

    Clock issues have plagued this site. Nebraska-Baylor had Tim Miles ejected after he was trying to get a refs attention about shot clock. When I listened to Creighton game they talked about clock issues too.

    Not easy operating the clock. As long as they use replay or whatever to correct mistakes, I don't see the problem

    to be fair, the clock guy was only 0.4 seconds late on a play that usually is stopped with a TO before inbounding or with a half court lob
