Committee wants stricter block-charge calls
May 9, 2014
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The NCAA men's basketball rules committee wants a stricter interpretation on charge-block calls next season.
It still must be approved by the Playing Rules Oversight Panel in June.
The most significant change would require defenders to be set in legal guarding position before an offensive player jumps to draw a charge. If the defender moves in any direction, other than vertically to block a shot, it would be called a block.
Other potential changes include expanding the restricted area in front of the basket, calling fouls for defenders who push a leg or knee into the rear end of a player of an opponent and calling a foul on the offensive player if he gained position by pushing back. Those changes would only be used on an experimental basis.
