Hixon doesn't think there will be much impact because in the grand scheme of things, the men didn't change much. 30 second shot clock which will keep the games from dragging out (and an extra possession at the end of games) and got rid of the closely guarded rule (which I hate that change). Otherwise... status quo for the most part.

I agree, I don't like the elimination for "closely guarded" either. Now, in late game situations, the only thing to do is to foul or try to get a jump ball. This also enables a team to have one player hold the ball in late game situations, instead of necessitating passes (which always have a chance of going out of bounds or being stolen).

Completely agree. I was basically told that since they were lowering the clock to 30 seconds they didn't need the closely guarded rule (WBB doesn't have it, but I have heard coaches were asking to add it - now they are frustrated because the men got rid of it). Nothing will keep an offense from simply dribbling the ball knowing they will have to be fouled to get the ball back - great, more fouling! Nothing rewards the defense for doing a good job! Fouling isn't a good job, but it will become an absolute necessity now and I hate that.

Nothing like lowering the clock to speed up the game while at the same time giving the offense the perfect stall tactic back.

Getting rid of the closely guarded rule has to be one of the strangest rule changes in NCAA history. What were they thinking?

Dave, I never did hear what happens if you are pressed to get the ball  into the front court and you call a timeout to avoid the 10 second call. Is the clock reset or not? I assume it is if there is a foul called.

Clock does NOT reset if you call your own timeout. The only time it will reset will be an opponent's foul, tipped out of bounds (I think), items that are not the offense's fault. Though, to be honest I know that is the case on the women's side... I can't remember off the top of my head on the men's side. I am also writing this as I rush out the door to get to a client this afternoon. I will be putting together a Hoopsville rules special... we won't cover everything, but things like this will probably be on there.

Due to all the changes in basketball this year, I put a special Hoopsville show together. It isn't anything incredible visually, but I talk to members of the rules committees and an AD about the changes: http://www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville/archives/2015-16/rules-special
