Albany's New Capital Center -- Basketball Court

Slightly annoying the "Albany" Capital Center licenses with Siena and not Albany. But I rather have trophies than various courts.



Possible New NCAA MBB rules - Testing at NIT

College basketball: Experimental rules approved for 2017 NIT

Team fouls to reset after 10 minutes in each half

The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel has approved experimental rules that will reset team fouls to zero at the end of 10-minute segments of each half in the upcoming 2017 NIT postseason tournament.

The panel also approved experimental rules that will reset the shot clock to 20 seconds instead of 30 seconds at times when the ball is inbounded in the front court during games in the NIT.

In the experimental rule regarding resetting the team fouls, the one-and-one free throw bonus will not occur. Instead, teams will shoot two free throws in the following examples:

Each team is limited to a team total of four personal and technical fouls (excluding administrative technical fouls) during each 10-minute segment of each half.

The first 10-minute segment of each half will begin when the ball becomes live to begin the half and will end when the game clock reads 10:00. The second segment will begin when the game clock reads 9:59 and ends when the half ends.

When a team has reached the four-foul limitation, all subsequent personal and technical fouls (excluding administrative technical fouls) will be penalized by two free throw attempts.

Each teams foul total will reset to zero when any 10-minute segment has ended.

The rules regarding penalties for fouls in the act of shooting, flagrant fouls or technical fouls will not be affected by this experimental rule and will always result in two free throws unless the rules specifically say otherwise.

In any overtime period, when a team has reached a total of three personal and technical fouls (excluding administrative technical fouls), all subsequent personal and technical fouls will be penalized by two free throw attempts.

The NCAA Mens Basketball Rules Committee has heard discussion in the college basketball community about possibly changing games to four 10-minute quarters instead of two 20-minute halves. One of the main reasons for contemplating the possible change is to allow for the team fouls to be reset to zero at the end of each 10-minute quarter.

The committee believes resetting the team fouls to zero at the 9:59 mark of each half may have the same effect as resetting the team fouls to zero at the end of each quarter, while at the same time allowing for mens college basketball to retain the unique format of two 20-minute halves.

In the other experimental rule, the shot clock will remain the same as when play was interrupted or reset to 20 seconds, whichever is greater, at any time any of the following occurs:

-A personal foul by the defense, which results in no free throws, and the ball is inbounded in the front court.

-Any technical foul assessed against the defense, and the ball is inbounded in the front court.

-The game is stopped for a bleeding player or blood on a uniform and the ball is inbounded in the front court.

The NCAA Mens Basketball Rules Committee wants to see if resetting the shot clock to 20 seconds when the offensive team is taking the ball out of bounds in the front court will increase the number of possessions for each team over the course of a full game, which may also increase scoring.

Experimenting with these rules changes during the 31 games played in the 2017 NIT will provide valuable information for the Mens Basketball Rules Committee to review during its May 2017 meeting. The committee will allow other postseason tournaments to use the experimental rules as well if the tournaments agree to gather the appropriate data for review by the committee.

Twill’s background


Our story comes from a family that needed love, help and inspiration more than ever.  Fighting a complex mental health diagnosis, our brother fought his way through trying times. Not knowing the end result, every day was a struggle to understand, to hold on, to live, to breathe, to eat, and to sleep for our brother. As a family, we didn’t know what each day would bring.


Our brother began to develop will power, the kind of power that could lift a car or bend a spoon with the mind. He slowly improved each day with a better sense of conviction and willingness to be with his family. It was like watching a grass root grow through a concrete sidewalk. Who knew such a beautiful thing could be grown from dark days with no sun. He found his way and his story and inspiration are embedded into our family owned company. Mom always said, “Where there's a will, there's a way."


"That's it!"  Where there's a Twill, there's a way. Twill that is what we WILL call our company. We gathered together in our dusty apartment basement in Albany, NY. To get started, we sold Zac’s car and began helping build this wonderful company with many passionate people. Our family, friends and supporters have all helped grow this company from the ground to helping so many in our community.


Just a quick update. Our younger brother is doing better now. He is employed, living independently and thriving. Every day is a new day and he continues to stay strong and live his life.


 For every Twill product sold, another is given to a local friend in need.
