No rules changes coming

Here’s an interesting release from the NCAA today indicating that there will be no major rules changes in college basketball next season.
In my view, that’s just fine. If you remember, they experimented with some of those changes, including the longer 3-point line, when the Huskies hosted the BCA Classic in November and I don’t think it made any real difference. So leave it where it is. The college game isn’t supposed to be the NBA.
Also interesting to note is the stuff at the bottom where it talks about the points of emphasis for officials next season.
Officials will again be on the lookout for palming, which seemed to be called against Justin Dentmon about once a game last season. Maybe that’s something he can clean up during the offseason.
A new point of emphasis that I’m all for is making sure that players truly have possession of the ball before calling time out. I’ve never liked the whole deal where players are flying out of bounds while trying to catch the ball with one hand and calling time with the other and being granted the time out.
• Several readers said the link to the story from the Oregonian the other day didn’t work. So try this one instead.
The story talks about the recruitment of several players from Oregon, and mentions that Kyle Singler has been visited recently by UW coach Lorenzo Romar. The story also references 6-10 forward Clint Chapman of Canby and notes Washington as one of his several schools of interest.
