Some writing I actually got paid for

Here’s a piece Referee magazine asked me to write about the issues surrounding the use of a shot clock at the high school level.  I busted my butt on this, particularly on all those stats and the side bar.  Interested in your opinions.  Hope you like it.  Here it is.

    Nice job, obviously. Very well done. In the last sidebar about when the shot clock was introduced in various rulesets, I always find it funny to remember that when the NCAA Men first adopted the shot clock (45 second version), the clock was turned OFF in the final 3 or 4 minutes of the second half. IOW, the time of the game when it was MOST likely for teams to stall is when they decided that the shot clock should not operate. Anybody else remember that?
