Installation has been completed on the new playing court in Tudor Fieldhouse. The new floor includes subtle graphic changes such as a larger, Old English 'R' at center court, a standardized 20-9 three-point line for men's and women's basketball and a new 3-foot Restricted Area Arc for the men's game.
The NCAA Men's Basketball Rules Committee voted earlier this year to add a no charge zone. Inside the 3-foot arc, a secondary defender will not be able to draw a charge. The rule goes into effect for Division I in the 2011-12 season and for Divisions II and III for the 2012-13 season.
