It's interesting that the official in the 2nd picture (Pat Driscoll?) is wearing a HS shirt.

Freedom of movement is the name of the game.

Yep, learn to play defense and move your feet. "Don't give me no lines and keep your hands to yourself."

Here's a novel idea: How about players moving their feet on defense?

Because I'm feeling nostalgic take a look at any part of these two clips. I know the game was different in the '80s and '90s - especially with more zone defense - but these games involve four of the most aggressive teams in those decades and they managed to play without putting their hands all over their opponents. When they used their hands the wrong way, the whistle blew.

Not really. What's interesting is the amount fouls bring called in scrimmages and exhibitions and coaches are complaining. They make the rules

That's the other part of the equation. I can only speak for the NCAAW side but I believe there was one, maybe two, officials involved in the rules summit in the spring. Everyone else was a coach, AD or some other administrator. We don't make the rules, we just enforce 'em.

Um, is this a new rule, or just a newly emphasized enforcement? Seems to me, jamming the dribbler was always a foul, by rule, even if it wasn't called consistently.

Translation: I hate the way other teams are getting away with muggings and it must stop. But now it's affecting my team who is just playing good hard defense.

No real need to disagree with me BNR, people do find different things more interesting than others :)

Totally agree. Plus they could switch on picks.

Wow, there is zero contact in those videos. And the benches are really far off the court.

Teams knew this was coming. They'll adjust in a few games once they realize and then it won't be an issue anymore. Or at least they should adjust if they're smart.

Also it must be noted that in those old videos, ball handlers are not forcing their way to the basket either. Not only did the defense change, the offensive style changed too. Defenders are not right next to the ball handler and the ball handlers are not trying to go to the basket and are shooting more jumpers as well. Different game played all together.

Peace

Wtf is a "high school" shirt?

Seems like the directive is that the wide insert shirt can be worn as long as all members of the crew wear the same shirt.

Did I miss something saying that the wide insert shirt is now the official shirt?
