good catch, again inexact but adding that on it's roughly an extra half-second

How can a "professional" basketball official allow almost half of the time remaining on the clock to elapse without noticing that the clock didn't start correctly?

If you watch enough basketball, you always see the official that is out near halfcourt pointing to another official when the shot clock gets below 10 seconds saying "I got the shot clock if the shot is taken close to the time expiring".

I'm almost certain the same responsibility falls on that same official that has a view of the game clock for making sure the game clock starts correctly when there are only a few seconds left.

It's just one game, but this is baffling how it was screwed up and then ignored.

Why anyone pays attention to college basketball before conference play begins is beyond me. This is another reason why you shouldn’t.

Thanks for sharing. I was wondering wtf happened.

Sounds like some extra nasty bull shite.
I’m with you, I think they should have replayed the possession.

All in all I’m happy with the potential I’ve seen so far from the team in general.
Hopefully this new coaching staff will be as good at harnessing the potential and showing growth from week to week as well as the football staff has done so far.

Not sure what poor officiating has to do with the level of competition.

I pay attention the whole season because I’m an LSU fan and support the tigers, , and I’m interested to see the growth and progression this team can achieve from start of season to the end. Especially with a new staff.

To track progress, you have to pay attention.

How is it that LSU gets fricked by stupid rulings all of the time?

Clock should start when someone on the court touches the ball, not when it leaves the inbounders hands

It doesn’t start when it leaves his hands. It starts when the in bounds player first touches it, so your number is way off.


When people know so little about the game, and the rules of the game, agree, they should not even attempt to post.

And even then, it is never immediate. Takes a brief time normally for clock operator to see it hit the hand, then push the clock start button, then clock to get moving. Total clown call

So from what I gather, home teams can use this to their advantage and purposefully start the clock late in similar situations to make a player believe he has more time than he does and that’d be 100% cool with the NCAA rules.

The refs control the clock starting and stopping in most games at decent venues. The LSU clock operator doesn’t control that. They do control the resetting of the shot clock which is why sometimes you’ll see the refs stop play for a second when the shot clock didn’t reset when it should have.

That’s a fricking joke. If the clock starts early. Replay the point. Joke

Ah.. makes sense. I don’t watch shooty hoops. Just figured it was like football and clocks were controlled by the home team.

LSU could give the NCAA big time issues by protesting the outcome. At worst this is a do over.

Exactly. The clock started AT MOST .2 or .3 seconds late, and that is normal even at the pro level.

That is why there are rules about what shots can be attempted with .2 vs .3 seconds on the clock. They know human operators would never get that exactly right.

For all we know and extra .5 could have been run off the clock after the previous play.
