Rule changes

charge / block & elbows

The NCAA has amended their rule book to make it clearer about what is a block and what is a charge. They also made some changes to what is reviewable on the monitor, and tried to make it easier for the officials to decide what to do about those pesky elbows.

That charge Ohio St benefitted from would now be a blocking call. That elbow Peyton got called for ( on that move to the basket ) would be a no call. Apparently, Flagrant 1 or 2 are no longer the only choices.

I'd like to see the circle expanded, to something closer to the NBA. If a defender is willing to take the charge, do so in the lane outside of most players ability to reach the rim. Chane's Dunk of the Year was almost a charge, because the defender had a heel in the circle. Clearly, that player should have just walked away and not challenged the dunk, but then we wouldn't have that glorious memory of our last Depaul Day.
