You have ten (10) seconds to bring the ball past the half court line or you'll get called for a backcourt violation...

In the case mentioned above, the offense must get the ball past the mid-court line within 8 seconds. This a revision from the previous rule that allowed 10 seconds.

The team has 8 seconds to get the ball over the half-court line. its 8 seconds in the NBA but in college and below a team has 10 seconds

the shot clock is 24 seconds, and it resets when it is shot once they get to the offensive side. So basically 24 seconds. There is no certain seconds where they have to shoot it only across half court
