    Rule Change

    Hadn't seen this mentioned yet so thought I'd post it.

    NCAA committee approves several rules changes for men's, women's basketball - ESPN

    My thoughts: Don't like the 3-foot "no-charge" area under the basket. Will the refs be allowed to stop play and review this? I don't think the 10-second rule will make it through exhibition play.

    The no-charge area is long overdo, although most of the referees I know of automatically call anything under the rim a block already. A defender shouldn't be rewarded for setting under the rim and getting posterized.

    Re: Rule Change

    Ive never actually understood why the women dont have a time limit to get the ball across half court.

    It's a holdover from the 6 on 6 days, I believe. Players were not allowed to cross half court at the time. 3 behind the line, 3 in front.

    Then again I could be wrong and making all this up.

    And thank you Stumpy for this:
