Would about "player on the bench player of the game"?
A what if question - If a problem such as the clock stopping or a messed up score and the game is over can anything be done?
One post questioned whether it could be reset in a case we saw in the KSU game — it seems like it could have been done if there was a dead ball after ISU's possession and somebody noticed it, but once action continued, it would be too late. Obviously isn't the rule, since they changed it, but I don't know the "statute of limitation" on timing resets. :)
Bottom line, it definitely had potential impact on how KSU approached that possession. And it was nice to see Iowa State on the "receiving end" of that situation, for a change.
Timing Mistakes and Malfunctions
This isn't exactly the same situation, but you can see that the officials have until the second deadball after the timing error to correct it. First deadball was after the made basket. Second deadball was the foul. It was perfectly legitimate to correct the timing error at this point. If the timing error had been longer it could have ended the game. If it had been longer they could have also taken ISU's basket off the scoreboard if they determine that the shot clock should have expired. In that case the foul is taken away the clock is reset to the time of the shot clock violation and KSU gets the ball at the inbound point as if it was a normal shot clock violation.Quote:
During a throw-in by Team A, the timer fails to properly start thegame clock. After the clock should have started:(1) A1 commits a violation; or(2) A1 is successful with a try for goal.RULING: (1) A1’s violation caused a dead ball. The timer’s mistake shallbe corrected during this first dead ball and before the ball is touchedinbounds or out of bounds by a player other than the thrower-in.(2) The timer’s mistake may be corrected after A1’s successful try forgoal and before the ball is touched inbounds or out of bounds by aplayer other than the thrower-in. When the mistake is not correctedduring this first dead-ball period and since the game clock should havebeen running, the mistake must be corrected before the ball is touchedinbounds or out of bounds by a player other than the thrower-in beforethe second live ball.(Rule 2-13.2.c.1.a and 5-11.1)
