Three point line moving back
The NCAA is moving the three point line from 20'9" to 22' 1 3/4" for Division 1 next year. Shooting averages are going to drop.

Inside play will become more important. NCAA had turned into Shoot three then rebound.

This will help NIU tremendously! Geno will be able to make that shot and that also will play right into Monty’s defense and rebounding philosophy

RE: Three point line moving back
What about the rest of our team though? Not everyone is a good three point shooter. I think it will benefit the freak athletes. More space to take guys off the dribble. This is why scoring is so high in the NBA. More space to create. Defense his soft across the board in pro ball partly because of spacing.

Scoring is high in the NBA because it has a 24 second shot clock, 8 more minutes of game time and world class ballplayers. This is going to make the game more center and PF centric.

RE: Three point line moving back
This will of course require ALL floors to have their “arch’s” restriped.

In the case of the Convo the arch seperates the Natural wood look and the “dark” wood area with Huskie eyes.

Might be an opportunity to lose that dark area and brighten up the floor/Convo.

I can’t be the only one that doesn’t like the current look...Who’s with me???? 02-13-banana

RE: Three point line moving back
Since the women's line does not move, will there be a ton of reviews to make sure they get the call right. Seems like an out of position ref will have hard time to see men's vs. women's lines.

I love the Convo floor. When it was first debuted, I was like WTF? But, it has grown on me, and it's really unique. It's not the floor that makes the Convo dark. As we have discussed in the past, it's the lighting over the seating areas that gets dimmed when the game starts, in their attempt to create a theater-like setting. All that did was help us sleep through the games. All lights should be turned up completely, and I think they have gotten better in this regard.

What I really love are those warm up jersey jackets worn by the team that has the Huskie eyes on them. Gosh, how I'd love to get one of those! But, as with everything else that's cool, it's not sold anywhere that I know of.

I'm not crazy about the floor but I do like moving the line back.

I don’t see the dark court changing anytime soon and I for one like it. Sooo the men’s line is likely going to have to be white, which will lighten things up for folks 03-wink

Basketball needed to do something. When you look at the box score and see 35 plus 3 pts attempted it was a time for a change.

Maybe as one of the basketball giveaways next season, they can give out high-powered flashlights (sponsored by Blain's Farm & Fleet).

Agree. For first-time Convo visitors, first impression is terrific artwork. Unique. Individualistic. Wow.

But then that wears off, and it just looks foreboding and weird. It becomes the answer to "why is it always so dark in here?" The change is a good excuse to redo the floor, tho I'm concerned about the cost of putting in the new lines and adjusting the artwork.

Also, do you ever get the feeling those eyes are following you around? Like it's really p'o'd at you? Like it might jump up and bite you in the adz if you get up to hit the can or get some nachos? Like it could be the theme for an old CBS Radio Mystery Theater episode? Like somebody might be buried under there?

Every time I see it, for some reason I start thinking about how great a big juicy steak would taste right about now.
