YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The Youngstown State basketball floor got an update Thursday as the NCAA made changes to the three-point line.
The NCAA is moving the men’s three-point line back to 22’1.75″ from 20’9″.
No changes have been made to the women’s three-point line.
It will go into effect next season for Division I, but will wait until 2020/2021 for Divisions II and III.
The men’s three-point line is still shorter than the NBA’s but is now level with the current international distance.
The last time the NCAA moved the three-point line further from the hoop was in 2008/2009 when it was moved from 19’9″ to 20’9″.
