21 years later!

I was watching a couple of NCAA Championship basketball games on T.V. from the 1980's era. Indiana v Syracuse and Kansas v Oklahoma. A couple of things were done in the 3 person mechanic and how the games were played that is different now. For example;

(1) the center official admin all free-throws
(2) more then four defensive players were allow in the lane spaces during FT's
(3) lead official stood pretty much in the paint; rotated ONLY when necessary.


My questions are:

(a) when (what year) did the lead start admin FT's.
(b) when (what year) did it change to the current rule. Def no more than four.
(c) when (what year) did the collared shirt became obsolete.
(d) when (what year) the shot clock changed from 45 sec to 35

Maybe an official who worked back in those years can shed some light.

Thanks!!

I am going to guess on a few of these.

a. 1998-1999?
b. 2003?
c. 1996 is when I was wearing them. The next year I think they took the "collared" part out of the Official's Manual.
d. 1986 (or the year after Villanova won the NC over Georgetown.

I am sure someone will have definitive information. This is just off the top of my head.

Peace

1989-90 was the first year the lead administered the second (or third) free throw. While I remember that clearly, I don't recall exactly when the lead started bouncing all free throws. I think it was about 3 or 4 years later.

The Big 8 (and SWC, Metro and a couple of other leagues) only wore the gray shirts for 2 years -- 1989-90 and 1990-91. Several other conferences wore a different gray shirt for a short period of time -- like less than a season. In '91, the NCAA said striped shirts.
