Basketball is a fast-paced game and there are many elements of strategy as well as athleticism that make for great teams. One of the unheralded elements of the game however is the aspect of time. When you watch a basketball game on television, you will notice how much of a factor time actually is. There are constant clocks everywhere you go including the shot clock, the game clock, and various rules that dictate elements of play on the court itself.

Every player on the court as well as the coach of the team have to be aware of the clock at all times. The clock can manage the tempo of how a team is attacking or defending the basket. The other thing that is critical and tied to the timing of the game is substitution. There are certain points in the game that it truly makes sense to bring in fresh legs to give other players a break.

Time is of the essence when a game is on the line and as a coach, Frank Lollino Jr is always talking about keeping the game fast paced, but always under control in a way that is strategic and beneficial to the aspects of each and every team. By controlling the clock, a team can dictate the pace of the game, so it is important to integrate clock awareness and clock management into every practice from the first day of camp and through every session in which the team works on their play.
