Dial PA-2-4600 for » WANT AD Taker EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD- WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 1955 SEVENTEEN lentpr Urges Change In Foul Rule By CHARLES PUFFENBARGER . ANNAPOLIS W) :-i Navy coach Ben 'Carnevale -ias some-suggested rules changes "he thinks .would not only help equalize the game of basketball, but also eliminate criticism of too much whistle blowing by officials. • "As it is now," he said, "we « ich our boys to foul when we're hind. We all do. You've got .a chance..of getting the ball. "The officials only catch six or seven out of 10 fouls, particularly on the-team that is behind near the end of the game," hex said. ''Even so, the other team won't make 100 per cent of the free throws and you get the ball if it: does." .-;.'.,-.,. • , ^ Favors 'Real'Penally* •••; Under the present "bonus" free throw rule, a player who is fouled '•gets one shot. If-he makes that, *he gets another< If he makes both shots, the other team, the one which committed the foul, gets the ball and has a chance- to. make • three points, a foul and a tap in if ;the second shot is missed. •: '"Why hot make, it a real penal- /ty-shot?" Carnevale said. "Why 'giye the ball to the team that committed the foiil?" • v Carnevale's plan has several parts, all of which are needed to : make it work properly, he said. .It's this: { First, two shots should be awarded a person fouled in the act of shooting. . : :~> On all other defensive fouls (a •foul by the team without the ball), one .shot should be awarded. In * either case the fouled team should .get the ball out of bounds at mid- court^' •• •- No Ball, No Shot! ' :;; "If a team on offense (with the ball) commits a foul,-there should be no shot, but just give the -op'-posing team 1 the ball. "Why should you -be given the opportunity to -score when you don't have the " : ball?"- Carnevale asked. -But he also believes that to make his proposed system work a time limit similar to the 24 second rule "adopted by the'professional league should be set up in colleges. "That is, require the team with the ball to shoot within 24 seconds. "This would stop stalling by a tea/a in possession of the ball and leading in the game. . "I can't find any loopholes in this plan," he said. :r Carnevale believes the 24 second 'rule will be adopted sooner or later by the colleges, but that the authorities don't want to move too fast in view of recent criticisms •of the many rule changes. '' Such a rule also would necessitate more officials and more ex- «nses to the colleges. They would ve to buy special clocks and hire ^'personnel-to operate them'.' * Carnevale is happy .with one new frule change this year, though. He - '""believes widening- of the foul lanes ato 12 feet will keep the big boys "from tipping in so many shots. RICHMOND, Va. (J! — Led by e'orge Washington, the Southern onference this season is offering e sternest pass defense in years.; The Colonials have permitted anj verage of, only about four com-| etions a game for 45 yards. Last season only two SC teams nished with a yield of less than 0 yards per game by passing. The ve top league teams this season re under that figure. ' The latest conference team sta- stics also show potent offenses, 'est Virginia, averaging 406.6 ards per game, likely will establish a new SC total offense rec- rd and Davidson is far ahead of ast year's league-leading pass of- ense figure 1 with a 151 yards per ame'. West Virginia continues 1 as top rushing team with a 265.9 ards per game, a shade ahead of .s winning pace last -season. RUSHING LEADER—Art Lup- pion o£ Arizona, ..with two games left, is on his way to repeating as. the major college rushing leader. Last year he was.first with 1,350 yards. To date, he has gained 1*106, leadr ing Jirh-Swink of Texas Christian by 20 yards. Swink also has two games to play.
