NCAA Committee Proposes Rule Changes

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The NCAA Men's Basketball Rules Committee met this week and announced a number of recommended rule changes on Thursday, some of which were discussed earlier. The recommendations will be reviewed by an oversight committee in mid-June before becoming official for the 2013-14 NCAA Basketball Season.

Block/Charge Call: Proposed rule change...

In regard to the block/charge call in men’s basketball, the committee is proposing that a defensive player is not permitted to move into the path of an offensive player once he has started his upward motion with the ball to attempt a field goal or pass. If the defensive player is not in legal guarding position by this time, it is a blocking foul.

The current rule calls for a defender to be in legal guarding position before the offensive player lifted off the floor.

Elbow Rule: Proposed rule change...

...if a foul was called for elbow contact above the shoulders, the monitor may be used to determine if a flagrant foul has been committed. In this scenario, the official may determine if the contact was a flagrant 2, flagrant 1, common foul or no call.

When the officials use the monitor to review a situation that is not called on the floor, the only options are flagrant 2, flagrant 1 or no foul.

If the refs use the monitor to review a situation not called on the floor, the only options are flagrant 2, flagrant 1 or no foul.

Monitor Reviews: Proposed rule change...

...in the last two minutes of regulation and overtime officials can go to the monitor to review a shot clock violation and to determine who caused the ball to go out of bounds on a deflection involving two or more players.

Additionally, it was recommended that when officials have a question to whether a shot was 2-point or a 3-point field goal, they will be allowed to signal to the scorer’s table that the play will be reviewed during the next media timeout.

For Women's Hoops fans, a 10-second backcourt rule is recommended to be implemented.
