The Final Four tips off Saturday night and Steve Kerr has a few ideas on how to improve college basketball games.
``I could go on for a while,'' said Kerr, who played 15 seasons in the NBA and was the general manager of the Phoenix Suns from 2007-10. He went to the Final Four with Arizona in 1988 and is working his third straight national semifinals as an analyst for Turner/CBS.
A few of his ideas to watch during the Final Four:
-Eliminate timeouts after made shots. ``It just makes the game so choppy.''
-Cut out the mandatory media timeouts - under 16, 12, 8 and 4 minutes on the game clock- if a team calls one just before the scheduled timeout.'' I understand that you've got to sell advertising, but there's plenty of time for advertising because there's enough timeouts already.''
-Don't restart the 10-second backcourt count just because a team called a timeout.
-Change the interpretation of the charge/block so it's geared toward the offensive player. ``We've got to make the game more pleasing to watch and more fluid.''
