Ncaa Calls Timeout

Compiled From Wire Services

The NCAA will experiment with a new four-quarter format in several preseason men’s and women’s basketball tournaments this season, a move designed to improve the flow of the final minutes of games.

The experimental format consists of four 10-minute quarters with each team allowed one full timeout a quarter and two 30-second timeouts in each half. With the new format, neither team will have a full timeout after the 3-minute mark in the fourth quarter.
