They still have to be approved by the NCAA playing rules oversight panel, but a series of significant college basketball rule changes were proposed on Friday by the NCAA men’s basketball rules committee — including the adoption of a 30-second shot clock, and a series of other rules intended to improve the pace of play, particularly in the game’s final minutes.
From NCAA.com (you can read the entire story here):
The committee, which met May 12-15 in Indianapolis, agreed reducing the physicality is the most critical need to encourage a more open style of play and improve the game.
The key areas the committee will focus on in the upcoming season are:
• Perimeter defense, particularly on the dribbler and strictly enforcing the directives put in the book before the 2013-14 season.
• Physicality in post play.
• Screening, particularly moving screens and requiring that the screener be stationary.
• Block/charge plays.
• Allowing greater freedom of movement for players without the ball.
