2017-18 NCAA Changes

NCAA-M

Just getting around to reading JD Collins' latest memo. Got really happy when I read this in regards to upcoming CCA Manual changes:

7. Lead position – Throw-ins:
a. During a half court throw-in, the lead should position himself according to page 63 of the Mechanics Manual. We are choosing to go inside the player too often.
b. During a backcourt baseline throw-in, the lead official will be given the option to stay on one side of the lane and bounce the ball to the offensive player on the other side of the lane when there is no pressure. This will decrease the number of times the center and trail have to reset and change position. This will be detailed in the fall clinics.


NOTE: Obviously "b." should actually be referring to the Trail, not the Lead.

2017-18 NCAA Changes

Now only the NFHS needs to go to the toss across.

Can you elaborate on A? I like going inside to not be blocked from a quick play at the basket so I'd like to hear JD's thinking on that.

Could you please post the entire memo? Thanks.

Can't speak to his thinking, but I know our mechanic is not to go inside unless the throw-in is at least 1/2 way between the 3-pt line and the free throw lane line.

I personally like to stay outside so I can see the paint and the thrower-in at the same time.

Thanks. Appreciate it.

I will only go inside if the throwin would put me outside of the 3-point line.

1. Foul reporting
a. Make sure that our officials clear the players, clear the 3-point arc and have line of sight with the scorer (page 23 of the 2016-17 Mechanics Manual). Walking to the table from lead is unacceptable, put some zip into your movement to report.

b. When you call a foul in your primary area, report the foul to the table. We need to force switches in order to get officials in different positions on the floor.
2. Stopping the clock – Previous Mechanics Manuals referred to this as we “would like” the official to stop the clock. This year’s manual will make stopping the clock mandatory. Stopping the clock will make us better officials, allow ourselves additional time to gain insights on each
play as they happen and eliminate blarges from our game (page 25).

3. Communication – It is very important after a foul is called that we communicate effectively. Often times, our officials have a favorite “signal” that they use at the scorer’s table or at the spot of the foul. It is the official’s responsibility to communicate “what happened” on each
play using the appropriate signal (pages 78, 83-85, 88, 116, 121, 123 and 148-158).

4. Staying at trail after a foul – Again this year, staying at trail after reporting a foul will be an option if the official feels that he may have a chance to defuse a coach. Officials need to be aware of the coach’s reactions and utilize this mechanic as needed to help the game.

5. The “legally walled up signal” – The legally walled up signal was used during the 2016-17 season. This signal will be used again in 2017-18 and should only be used by the lead official. The center and trail should not be using this signal during live play.

6. Clock awareness – The 2017-18 mechanics manual will stress the importance of clock awareness. We are developing the suggested mechanics and will communicate those during the fall clinics.

7. Lead position – Throw-ins:
a. During a half court throw-in, the lead should position himself according to page 63 of the Mechanics Manual. We are choosing to go inside the player too often.

b. During a backcourt baseline throw-in, the lead official will be given the option to stay on one side of the lane and bounce the ball to the offensive player on the other side of the lane when there is no pressure. This will decrease the number of times the center and trail have to reset and change position. This will be detailed in the fall clinics.
8. Positioning

a. Trail official
(1) Should have an initial starting position at or near the 28’ hash.

(2) Should close down to get the best angle to officiate each play
(pages 29-30). In addition, it is important that our trail official does not “bail out” to begin covering a play at the other end.

(3) Should move 1-2 steps high or low to obtain a better angle between players depending on the movement of the ball. It is important to move with a purpose and not get straight lined by your movements.

(4) Should release plays that curl away from you to the new primary official.

(5) Should focus on obvious “reset the feet” travels on the perimeter and travels in the post.
b. Center official
(1) Should have an initial starting position at or near the free throw line extended.

(2) Should close down to get the best angle to officiate each play (pages 31-32).

(3) Should move 1-2 steps high or low to obtain a better angle between players depending on the movement of the ball. It is important to move with a purpose and not get straight lined by your movements.

(4) Should not leave a “good view” of an active play just because the lead rotated. After the “active play” has changed rotate to your proper position.

(5) Should officiate primary defenders on block/charge plays to the rim from
center side.

(6) Should officiate the restricted arc line on secondary defenders on block/charge plays to the rim from center side.

(7) Should release plays that curl away from you to the new primary official.

(8) Should focus on obvious “reset the feet” travels on the perimeter and travels in the post. Find the pivot in the post!
c. Lead official
(1) Should mirror the ball at Lead. It is imperative that we begin to close down as the ball moves toward the opposite side. This will allow us to be in a better position to rotate, if a rotation is needed (pages 26-28).

(2) Should officiate all primary and secondary defenders on block/charge plays to the rim down the lane and from strong side.

(3) Should officiate secondary defenders on block/charge plays initiated from
weak side.

(4) Should “take fouls to the table” on all plays to the rim in his primary area of responsibility when calling a foul.
9. Rules Committee action

The rules committee will meet May 9 – 12, 2017, in Indianapolis. All rules changes and impacted mechanics will be shared with you during the fall clinics.

38 foot box. Next they'll get all 47 feet and still won't think they have enough room to coach.

Perhaps the coaching box should be 84/94' x 50'.

In summary...

1) 38-foot box
2) Shot clock resets to 20 instead of 30 on a defensive foul or violation
3) Standardizing the designated spot for certain throw-ins
4) Going to the monitor for potential RA plays in the last two minutes of the second half or overtime
5) Minimum of 0.3 to come off the clock on a legal touch
6) Feet must be no wider than shoulders for a legal screen
7) Cylinder rule adjustments

Adopted Rule Changes NCAA-M

Just now going over the official rule changes for the 2017-18 season. They will now be certain situations where players will not be required to "sit a tick":

(Rule 3-6.1.j)
To permit a replaced player to re-enter the game when the opponents have committed a violation or foul before the game clock has been properly started.

Adopted Rule Changes NCAA-M

Another significant change:

(Rules 4-10.2, 10-2.5 and 10-4.1.l)
To amend the current rule requiring warnings for delay penalties prior to assessing a technical foul. When a second delay is different from the first, a technical foul will be assessed for any further delay(s). When a team is warned for the same delay a second time, a technical foul will be assessed per the present Rule 4-10.2

Thumbs up Adopted Rule Changes NCAA-M

You HS-only guys are going to be jealous about this one:


(Rule 10-2.3.c)
To eliminate the requirement that officials enforce penalties for wearing an illegal uniform and place the responsibility with the violating team's conference. The officials will still have the responsibility for prohibiting equipment and apparel that the official deems dangerous to other players (per rule 1-26) as well as the responsibility to enforce contrasting uniform color and number rules.
