Looking at the different leagues around the country, the shock clock is one of the most diversified rules there is. Teams go from high school level where in some states the shot clock is non-existent to the NBA where there is 24 seconds to shoot.

Ever since its debut by gym teacher Dr. James Naismith in 1891 basketball has become a widely popularized team sport for both men and women across the nation. Though enjoyed by both men and women, women have struggled to attain the same respect in the sport as men, even though the women at the University of California had their first extramural game in 1892.
