The NCAA, it was reported on Friday, is now in talks about potentially moving the three-point line back to the FIBA (international association) distance for future seasons. Currently, the line, which was moved back not too long ago, is at 20 feet and nine inches.
The proposed change would be to make it 22 feet and 1.75 inches. This, it is thought, would reduce the number of threes made again, though it’s sure to only stick for a period of time since it will become the norm that players are used to before long. Another interesting rule that is being looked at is the resetting of the shot clock after an offensive rebound to just 20 seconds. This would force teams to get into their offense a little bit quicker. It’s not expected that either rule will be changed before the 2021 season, so there is time to have minds changed.
