The no-charge area is long overdo, although most of the referees I know of automatically call anything under the rim a block already. A defender shouldn't be rewarded for setting under the rim and getting posterized.
Ive never actually understood why the women dont have a time limit to get the ball across half court.
It's a holdover from the 6 on 6 days, I believe. Players were not allowed to cross half court at the time. 3 behind the line, 3 in front.
Then again I could be wrong and making all this up.
Green hills for thy throne, and for crown a golden melody/Ringing in the hearts of all who bring thee love and loyalty/Dear Alma Mater, make our spirits great True and valiant like the bells of I-O-WA STATE!
