Excessive NCAA Time Outs

How many timeouts are in a televised NCAA basketball game? Possibly 28! Twenty-eight!

Each team gets 5 during each half, four 30 seconds timeouts and one 60 second timeout.  On top of that there are 4 TV timeouts each half at 4 minutes intervals ( at the 16, 12, 8, and 4 minute marks in the half).  This is a grand total of 28 time outs in a game (with the half-time break).  I know, basketball is a physically demanding sport, but man, that is too many commercials for me.

No timeouts in soccer!
