Fans were not shy about expressing their opinions on the slow pace and tempo of men's college basketball games this past season.
Now, it looks like changes are in the works, and college basketball could have a different look next year.
The men's basketball rules committee met on Friday and announced that it would recommend a number of changes in men's college basketball, including shortening the shot clock from 35 seconds to 30.
@Marchmadness, which is the official NCAA March Madness Twitter handle for all things Division I NCAA Men's Basketball, tweeted out the list of proposals on Friday afternoon.
According to @marchmadness, all proposals must be approved by Playing Rules Oversight Panel on June 8 before becoming official.
