NCAA Is Moving Back Three-Point Line Next Season

(Undated)  --  The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel has announced that the three-point line will be pushed back next season in college basketball.  The panel approved the move to the international basketball distance of 22 feet, one-and-three-fourths inches in men's basketball.  When the line was moved before the 2008-09 season, the distance went from 19 feet, 9 inches to 20 feet, 9 inches. The men's basketball rules committee members recommended the changed after feedback from coaches whose teams competed in the 2018 and 2019 NIT with the same three-point distance.  The rule will be effective for the 2019-20 season in Division I.  Due to the potential financial impact of placing a new line on courts, the move will go into effect for the 2020-21 season in Divisions II and III.
