Anyone else see this story and think about how much WORSE we'd have been this coming year if MD had been retained? He wanted a bunch of 3-point shooters and couldn't get them with the line closer, imagine how bad we'd be now...

What about every college bball court having their current 3 pt. line eradicated and repainted a bit further out. Or do they use peel & stick decals now??

Most courts get refinished over the summer anyway, it's surprisingly not a big deal.

MD's whole NBA Lite philosophy was a disaster. From his 3 point shooting offense to his man to man defense, etc it was doomed to failure.

I'm pretty sure most courts will now wind up with multiple lines since the NCAA only adopted the change for the men and have left the women's line at 20'-9".

Ah, I missed that the women's line was not moving.

Man, on courts where pros also play, it's gonna get ugly...

They should introduce point levels depending on what line you shoot from!
