Who in the world ever came up with that dumb and ridiculous NCAA rule that a player can call an instant time-out if he (or she) is being hounded by the defense and fears there could be a jump ball. In the NCAA tournament, Cincinnati did it against Missouri near the end of their game and Missouri’s Coach Anderson drew a technical when he complained that the Cincinnati player didn’t even have control of the ball so should not have been allowed to call a time-out. My question is: where in the world did this dumb rule come from? It seems to me that it penalizes teams like Missouri that use a full court press to cause turn-overs.
