NBA Mechanics vs D1 Mechanics

Help educate me here.

Is there a significant difference between 3 person mechanics in D1 and the NBA ?

If you know one, and have done it one way for years, how difficult would it be to learn the other system ?

curious

There's actually 3 mechanics.

NCAA Women's
NCAA Men's
NBA

NBA and NCAA Women's are the closest as far as mechanics go. NCAA-W and NBA have the same court coverage. I believe NCAA-M is changing this year to the same also (but not 100% sure).

The hardest thing for me was the difference between NCAA-M and NBA coverage (which like I said, I think is being changed).

In NBA the lead has below the freethrow line extended, so he would signal 3-pointer.

In NCAA-M (before any change), the lead has freethrow line extended inside the 3-point arc. So the trail would have any matchup outside the threepoint line on the side.

Other than that the other differences are minimal.

NBA/NCAA-W use two handed reporting, NCAA-M is one. There's some other minor mechanic differences but that's pretty much it.

The SEC uses modified NBA machanics too.

There's a tremendous amount of difference in the rules as opposed to mechanics. For example, in college these items don't exist or the rule is different, to name a few:

Loose ball foul
Restricted area
Defensive 3 seconds
Advancing the ball to the FC on TO
Backcourt situations
Shot clock
3 tenths rule
Flagrant vs. intentional fouls
Continuation
Jump stops
Inbounds spot on violations/fouls
Held balls

As for mechanics, there are basic differences in:

Floor coverage
Hand signals
Flex (rotation)
Post officiating
And just basic officiating philosophy

And yes, to answer a question in the other thread, I'm sure officials like John Clougherty, Jim Burr, Tim Higgins, Ted Valentine, all of whom have worked numerous Final Fours and NC games feel they've reached all the goals they've set in officiating.

I've not heard this, and I really really hope it's not true.
