    Shot Clock Discussion

    McMillan headed to hillcrest prep in arizona

    Yes it's a sliding scale. Basically, if you have 3.5 or above then just take the ACT. The minimum GPA is 2.3 with 16 core courses taken. So a valedictorian is highly unlikely to not qualify based on an ACT score. Not taking the core classes maybe, but not ACT score.

    Another Weekend Of Youth Basketball.... Another Weekend Of Fights

    Yeah he thought he was adding to the game like the guys do at outdoor tournaments or games sometimes. But I've seen it there when it actually adds to the atmosphere. Like at some games I saw between Skid Row teams in L.A. once.

    I disagree. Refs do it so the games can be played for the players. I think more often coaches think the games exist for them. At least the egotistical blowhards do.
