the clock might be instructive. 14-24 are probably pretty good, because
these are fast break or open shot situations for the most part, but it mighe
be interesting to see <4, 5-8 and 9-12 (or other granularites) to see if
waiting longer is beneficial.

to a HS game tonight and I'll track this during the game. Can't
really do it on a televised game.
