Hating the shot clock because you don’t like the MLL game is misplaced.


The MLL has always been a league of up & down lacrosse for a number of reasons. Those reasons include that the higher the level of skill on the field goes, the higher the likelihood of a shot getting created sooner. MLL players are such elite passers & nobody stops moving off ball that defending them is nearly impossible for over a minute anyways. Even without a shot clock you’d see nearly the same game.

The shot clock is the best thing to ever happen to college lacrosse. Be honest, if you’re old school which 2 teams played each other best? Cuse vs. UVa. Everyone agrees those were the most wildly entertaining & skillful games in those earlier eras not because the players were much different, but the programs celebrated up & down lacrosse. Most others didn’t.
