Has anyone watched the TBT?

I'm curious if anyone had comments on how they end their games.

The first dead ball with four minutes to go, they remove the clock and they play to a score. The target score is seven plus the leading team's score. Every game ends on a basket. There doesn't seem to be a lot of fouling.

Semi finals tonight. Finals are Friday. Take a look if you haven't seen it.

I suppose if you don't care about that, the Jimmer fans can watch him now.

I heard about that. I also heard that the target score is only if it's a "close" game I think anything 10 points or less by the 5 minute mark of the 4th quarter. I'll have to watch more, interesting idea, as they have to do something with the late game fouling, especially at the collegiate level where some of those coaches start it with still 3 minutes left on the clock, but not sure that's the correct way to go about it.

And I haven't watched much of the TBT tournament. I've had it on TV's in hotel rooms when I've been driving, but just finished up a 4 month AAU season following a 4 month high school season, so I'm tuning out basketball for a bit here, LOL.
