NCAA Comittee Proposes Moving 3-Point Line To International Basketball Distance 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sun May 12, 2019 4:35 pm

The NCAA Men's Basketball Rules Committee has proposed moving the 3-point line to the international basketball distance.


The current college line is 20 feet and 9 inches. The international standard is 22 feet and 1¾ inches.


If passed by June 5th, the new rule would go into effect next season at the Division 1 level.


"The time is right because it gets college guys close to the NBA line. The shooting has improved enough that moving back is warranted. The line back will create better spacing and help with freedom of movement," said Villanova coach Jay Wright.
