in this area.

Court and Equipment 1-14.3
. Effective 2009-2010 movable rings shall be required and the

rings may flex both to the front and the sides.

Logos 1-16.4
. There are no restrictions on NCAA, team or conference logos, names or

abbreviations on the playing court, provided they do not obscure any of the required lines.

Officials Jurisdiction 2-4.4. (Men)
. When all three officials leave the confines of the playing

area at the end of the game, the officials' jurisdiction has ended and the score has been


Duties of Timer 2-10.9

second time limit to replace a disqualified player. The signal also shall be sounded at the end

of the 20 seconds to replace a disqualified player.

Uniforms 3-5.10
. Opposing team uniforms shall be of contrasting colors. The home team shall

wear light game jerseys and the away team shall wear dark game jerseys. Note: This rule may

be altered by mutual consent of the competing institutions.

Uniforms 3-5.13 (new)
. The use of an arm sleeve, knee sleeve, and lower leg sleeve is

permissible for medical reasons but its utilization shall be verified by either the individual's

coach or trainer.

Uniforms 3-6.1
. A single manufacturer's or distributor's normal logo, label or trademark may be

worn on the game pants, and all other items of apparel excluding the game jersey (e.g., Warmups,

socks, headbands, and wristbands) may bear a single manufacturer's or distributor's normal

logo, label or trademark or an institutional logo or mascot but not both may be worn.

Goaltending 4-34.3
. When the entire ball is above the level of the ring during a field-goal try

and contacts the backboard, it is considered to be on its downward flight. In such a case, it is

goaltending when that ball is touched by a player.

Timeouts 5-13.4.k.
Note: For all NCAA tournament games, the format described in Rule 5-

13.4 may be used without the presence of paid advertising.

Foul and Penalties (Men) 10-3 & 10-4
. Reorganization of Rule 10-3 and 10-4 in reference to

infraction and penalty.

Penalties (Women) 10-3.13-17 and 10-4.8 & 9
. After a single flagrant technical foul, play

will be resumed with a throw-in to the offended team at a designated spot nearest to where the

ball was located when the stoppage occurred.

Men's Points of Emphasis:

Rough play and illegal contact - emphasis on screening situations.

Charge/block - particularly near the goal.

Coaches' behavior and enforcement of the box.
