Rule Proposal: Shot Clock reset for receiving team

Rule Clarification Proposal by David Cook: 3.3.4.4 Shot Clock Violation

As of right now there is not a clear statement as to what the shot clock should be for the team that receives all the balls on a balls over. This year alone I know SVSU has experienced all 3 different situations:

1. The clock has been reset to 0.
2. The clock was rounded down to nearest increment of 5. (0,5, or 10)
3. The shot clock has remained the same for the team with all the balls.

I propose that either of the first two situations should be added into the rule book to eliminate confusion.

Editors Note: This was discussed in the 2015 Captains’ Meeting. It was not voted on last year for a rule change. This should be general practice though. If there is a shot clock violation, both teams’ shot clocks shall be reset to ‘0’. It will be added to the 2017 Rulebook. This will be the practice at Nationals 2016.
