finger weights in games

I've got small hands, about 6.8in from base of palm to tip mid finger and 7.4in wide from pinky to thumb when spread out.

Are finger weights allowed in basketball games?
I can shoot good off the dribble but when receiving a pass and shooting set shot, i dont have the lift or the power to control the ball like i do off dribble.  Finger weights would help a lot.

Don't wear them in your team games, that's retarded! Where them only when you practice... not when the game matters.

also, the serious answer to this hilarious question is, "no, unless you somehow have REALLY heavy neoprene handy."

Quote from: NCAA Rule Book 2011-2013, Rule 3, Section 9, Article 2
Elbow, hand, finger, wrist or forearm guards, casts or braces made of fiberglass, plaster, metal or any other nonpliable substance, shall be prohibited.
