NCAA rules committee recommends 60-second shot clock for men’s lacrosse

After years of debate, men’s lacrosse moved one step closer to adding a shot clock for the 2019 season. But support for such a measure is not unanimous.

After conducting a series of meetings from Tuesday through Thursday, the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Rules Committee announced Friday that it will recommend the introduction of a visible 60-second shot clock after the offense has crossed midfield. A team will have 20 seconds to clear the ball, and if the offense retains possession off a save or a shot off the goal posts or crossbar, the clock will be reset to 60 seconds. If the 60 seconds expire without the offense taking a shot, the defense will gain possession.
