Basketball Timer and Score Board using VB.NET with Source Code

This project is called as Basketball Timer and Score Board. This was developed using VB.NET. Due to the insistent basketball community demands, the basketball timer is created based on the previous revisions I make about the game timer, which doesn't fit in the demands of tournament committees and Referees. I update the features and come up with a newer platform this time in VB.NET. The project has user-friendly functionalities and a pleasant user-interface. The game timer can be changed according to the tournament time allotted. The system can be manipulated or controlled using the given keyboard keys such as starting the timer, play a buzzer, and adding/decreasing the team scores.
