NCAA Three Point Line moved back.


TurnTwo

Recommended Posts

Surprised no one has brought this up yet.

The NCAA will be moving the three point line back one foot from the current distance of 19'9" to 20'9". This line change will apply only to the men; so apparently there will now be two lines painted on all college courts, really makes no sense at all to me. If they were going to move it back it should have been either consistent with the international standard (20'6") or the NBA standard (23'9" at the key, 22' in the corner).

I hope it doesn't pass. College basketball is perfect as is.

I'd like to see 20'6" instead, the international standard, but adopt it for the women's game as well. Thus, no need for the 19'9" line.

Actually the one flaw in College Basketball is that the 3-point line is too close, and its too easy of shot moving it back about a foot is the right thing to do.

If they were gonna make the change, 20'6" is the only one that makese sense. Especially with all the talk about not lettin' the pros compete in Olympic ball (speaking of which... it wouldn't hurt if the NCAA got the trapezoid either).

Screw painting some new lines or changing the shape of the lane, how about they start teaching FUN-DA-MEN-TALS. That's good enough for me.

I know the NCAA doesn't do anything that isn't motivated by money, but I'm at a loss to how this is a profitable move.

I agree with the international 3-point distance...it make sense for SOMETHING to match!

I've always felt the 3-point NCAA line was too close - top-of-the-key is too basic a shot to earn three points.

Makes no difference to this Tennessee fan. Chris Lofton can drain 'em from much further out than that.

So could Corey Brewer and Taurean Green and Mike Humphrey and--well...pretty much every other Gator who released a shot outside the arc during the NCAA Championship game, to say nothing of most of their season (especially in the case of Humphrey)...

:D

American Basketball as a whole needs to learn Fundamentals its why cant win in Basketball any more everyone wants to be on Sportscenter with the 360 dunk.

I won't argue that point. I'll just say... scoreboard. What is UF's record against UT over the past two years? Last time I checked, I believe it was 1-3. B)

That may be true, but who cares when you have a couple of these?

I think it's probably just not as sweet when drunken Tennessee fans can sit around and make valid points about why they are better. When drunken Tennessee fans can make valid points about anything, you're in serious trouble. :P

For instance, if UF had to play UT for those national championships, they would only have a 25% chance of winning.

So from my drunk ass to any UF fans out there... boo ya!

You know these kids are practicing hauling it up from well beyond where the current line is, trying to emulate the NBA, so moving it back isn't going to hurt a whole lot, or probably change much either.

yeah when college kids play at the garden or any other court that has the colege 3 and the nba 3 on the court, most try to shoot from the nba 3 line, so it makes no difference, maybe just a mental one.

Hey...I was NOT tryna start all this mess! :D But um uh...if you UF & UT fans feel like going at it about that type of stuff, intoxicated or not, well then hell...go for it--knock ya'selves out!

(For the record, I am an FSU fan...which means I'm obliged to despise all things Gator. But, wasn't do denying the teams they had down there the last two years was something to see. Can't hate on talent and skill. And, of course, Florida IS my home state and all, so...)
