NCAAB Rules changes -- 2011-2012

Yesterday the NCAA Men’s Basketball Rules Committee recommended a number of changes to the rules. Perhaps the most significant of these changes will be the official implementation of the restricted three-foot arc under the basket  -- similar to the circle currently featured by the NBA.  If approved by NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel on June 9, 2011, the arc rule change will become a reality this season (2011-12)!  It's high time they did this IMHO.

There are a number of other changes also under consideration.  Among these are:

1.  Timeouts: Coaches can call timeouts only during dead ball periods.

2.  Monitor reviews: Coaches can request a monitor review by officials at any time during a game.  If coach is wrong, team loses a time out -- like football.

3.  Flagrant fouls:  Essentially eliminates the intentional foul and makes it a new flavor of a flagrant foul.  Only the most flagrant of flagrant fouls will result in ejection.  

4.  Timeout warnings:  The first time a team is late returning to the court after a timeout officials will warn the team.  After that, the officials can start play whether or not the offending team is on the court.

5.  Double fouls:  If officials call a double foul the more egregious foul will be enforced -- these will not be considered offsetting as is the case now.
