    Video review of late buzzer-beaters awaits approval of PBA board

    Jul 15, 2013
    Currently, only shots made at the end of every quarter are subject to video review. But the PBA competition committee wants to expand the rule to make sure wrong calls on buzzer beaters do not decide the result of matches during the game's final two minut

    IF the board gives its approval, disputes on 24-second shot clock violations inside the final two minutes of PBA games will be decided by a video review beginning in the Governors Cup next month.

    The league's competitition committee has proposed that video reviews be used to determine whether baskets beat the shot clock or not during the final two minutes of matches.

    As it is, only shots made at the end of every quarter are currently subject to video review. But the committee, made up of representatives from the league and the teams, wants to expand the rule to make sure wrong calls on buzzer beaters do not decide the result of matches during the endgame.

    The rule change forms part of a raft of proposals made by the competition committee which will be tackled by the league board when it meets on July 25.

    If approved, the rule change will take effect in the season-ending Governors Cup.

    Aside from the video review on buzzer beaters, the competition committee has also recommended changes to the implementation of rules regarding flagrant fouls, double lane violations, and delay of games.

    The committee has also proposed a crackdown on flopping, with escalating penalties - but no suspensions - slapped on offenders, regardless if referees called violations or not during a course of a game.
