Players will still shoot three-pointers, so couldn't it also make the zone have to extend even more?I think these changes will make the Syracuse 2-3 zone more effective. For a team that doesn’t shoot great from the outside, and has been having increasing issues defending the 3 point shot, this will be a godsend.
Correct. The article below does a good job explaining how the 3 point shoot has taken over college basketballl offenses. Check out the percentage of 3s made over the last 5 years. The 3 point shot is too easy right now and college coaches have finally figured this out. They are valuing outside shooting a lot more than in the past and changing their strategies to try and get good looks from the 3 point circle.Not if the additional distance causes a significant decrease in 3 pt make percentage.
It's not true in other sports, so why should it be true in bball?Basketball should have the same rules at every level. It's the best way to prepare for each level and to make comparisons.
Why shouldn't it be? Maybe the other sports have it wrong. That's not a reason not to make a positive change.It's not true in other sports, so why should it be true in bball?
It's been awhile since I've seen an international game, so is the 3 line out far enough that it's straight on a portion of the sidelines like in the pros? If so that sort of answers the question about the wings needing to cover more ground. Also, will SU be playing international rules or college rules on their trip to Italy. Either way that makes a high difference with game experience for the new rules
And lastly, love the change to a 20 second clock for offensive rebounds.
And maybe they don't and what makes it positive? And why should they be the same? What are the percentages of college players actually needing to play by pro rules because they will be playing in the pros? Vast majority won't so no need to play pro rules. And are the pro rule right? I mean pros travel more often than not on drives. Yeah it's not their rules but that's how they play. I guess MAYBE if the pros actually followed their rules and applied the equally to ALL players I would feel different.Why shouldn't it be? Maybe the other sports have it wrong. That's not a reason not to make a positive change.
