The NCAA Women’s Basketball Rules Committee recommended that the three-point line be moved back one foot, to 20 feet, nine inches.
They provide data, but it doesn’t support the action. Here’s the real impetus, I think: they’re trying to stop some teams from relying on the three-point shot.
“Change is always tough, but we think this will open up some things offensively in the women’s game,” Claybrook said. “The committee had great conversations prior to and during this meeting about the three-point line. We think this can be a game-changer for women’s basketball and open up the inside play, as well.”
