    Can someone define "The Extra Pass?"

    There is a college PBP man who is obsessed with this phrase, (I think he did the KU/Texas Big Monday game) and I just heard Charlie Spoonauer use it in the Drake game.

    Is there a finite point running an offense where the correct number of passes have been made and if another is made it is "The Extra Pass?"

    I am being a bit facetious but I guess my point is that sometimes I think announcers make the game more complicated than it really is-just a bunch of kids playing ball

    To me the extra pass means passing up a good shot for a great one.

    its just basketball cliche ... if the shot clock goes off it'll change to "they need to look to score" or "go strong to the rim"
