In Basketball, the shot clock counts down the time a team has to take a shot (which must hit the rim in order to qualify) after taking possession of the ball before a violation is called. In the NCAA, the shot clock is set at 35 seconds, which is 11 seconds longer than that of the NBA.

You have 10 seconds to get the ball past half court then you have 25 seconds to hit the rim and if you get an offensive rebound the shot clock starts over at 25 again. The times vary in different leagues. Those are the rules in my middle school league though.
