TRUE DOUBLE Elimination Final Match
Matches are allotted MAX times of 90 minutes. Half way into the match, if sum of games completed is not at 50% (i.e. race to 5 will need to have at least 5 games played 45 minutes into the match and race to 7 will need at least 7 games played 60 minutes into match), a shot clock will be enforced.
Here is an outline of the shot clock rules:
1. Each player will have 30 seconds to shoot and will receive a 10 second warning each time when needed.
2. If player has not released shot by the time clock expires, it will be ball in hand for their opponent.
3. Each player will receive 1 extension per game in which they will announce it to their time keeper before their original 30 seconds is expired. This extends their shot to a total of 45 seconds (30 seconds plus 15 extra seconds); should the match go hill-hill, each player gets 2 extensions during the final game.
