The Basketball Tournament changing rules to curb free throws ending game


Go Buckeyes
The Basketball Tournament, the 64-team, $2 million, winner-take-all summer event entering its seventh season, will change its rules to reduce the chances of a game ending on free throws, tournament officials told ESPN.

If a team commits a foul while in the bonus during the Elam Ending -- which has teams play to a target score rather than to the end of a clock -- the other team will get only one foul shot, rather than two, and retain possession of the ball, said Jonathan Mugar, TBT's founder and CEO.
