INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - An NCAA panel has voted to expand the use of replay review in college basketball, and instituted the 10-second backcourt rule for the women's game.
The Playing Rules Oversight Panel also approved a tweak to the charging-blocking foul in the men's game and gave referees leeway when it comes to penalties for accidentally elbowing an opponent above the shoulders.
The panel held a conference call on Monday. The approved changes are effective immediately.
The panel also voted to place greater emphasis in the men's game on calling fouls on defensive players who keep a hand or forearm on an opponent or use an arm bar to impede the progress of an opponent.
