New NCAA Hoops rules

Recommended Posts

INDIANAPOLIS -- The NCAA has approved adding an arc three feet from the basket, inside which a defender cannot take a charge.


The organization said Thursday its Playing Rules Oversight Panel had approved several recommended rules changes for college basketball during a conference call Monday.


The women's 3-point line will move back a foot to 20 feet, 9 inches next season, the same distance the men have used since 2008-09. In both the men's and women's games, the terminology for fouls will be changed to match the NBA. Intentional fouls will now be called Flagrant 1 and flagrant fouls will be called Flagrant 2.


Women's teams will also test a 10-second half-court rule in exhibition games next season.


The men's and women's basketball rules committees recommended the changes earlier this month.

I'm not sure we need to give AE refs anything else to mess up. They have to decide if it was a charge and where it took place on the floor...we're in deep.


The 10 second rule for the women would be interesting the way Coach Abe's team played last year. They often hounded teams in the backcourt, the new violation would give them an extra weapon.
