Teams were putting their brawniest individual in the slot and terrific heaving and hauling was taking place under the hoop, wllh fouls being repeatedly called. Clair Bee of Long Island University and Nat Holman of College of the City of New York recommended that a rule be Incorporated In the books prohibiting—an offensive plajcr from staying In the alley more than three seconds. The rules committee went them one better by Including the circle as well.
