NCAA To Move 3-Point Line Back To International Distance Next Season 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Jun 6, 2019 3:58 am

The NCAA approved a rule change to move the 3-point line to the international distance of 22 feet and 1¾ inches.


The rule will go into affect next season at the Division I level. 


Moving the 3-point line will improve offensive spacing and increase drives to the rim, according to the rules committee. 


The NCAA also approved 4 more rule changes, including resetting the shot clock to 20 seconds following an offensive rebound.
