08:06 AM ET 04.17 | When it comes to the shot clock, Tom Izzo would embrace change. [Izzo] said coaches discussed that idea during their meetings at the Final Four earlier this month, he told WWLS The Sports Animal on Monday. "I would like to see a change," Izzo told the station before receiving the Wayman Tisdale Humanitarian Award in Oklahoma City. "One of the guys I have great respect for -- Johnny Dawkins, who is at Stanford -- and we were in our meetings the other day, and he said, 'We have the slowest game in the world.' The international is less. The pro is less. The women's is less. And here we are with 35 (seconds)." ... The 35-second clock continues to allow teams to use ball control, but Izzo indicated some support exists for another change.

Cut it to 24, same as the NBA. Best change they could make.

As long as they don't adopt other NBA rules that take away the ability to play defense.

Start the shot clock when the ref hands the ball to the player. This will reward good defense in guarding the inbound and 10 second calls while speeding up the game
