Beyond the Arc
So the college hoops season opened last night, not a moment too soon, and few could make a shot beyond the new three-point line at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Duke (3 of 11) and Presbyterian (3 of 17) both struggled behind a line that is now 20 feet, 9 inches from the basket, a foot farther than it has been for the past 22 years. I wrote about this change in Sunday's newspaper, and was wondering if everyone thinks the change will have a profound impact on the game this season. I think the Butlers will still be Butlers, but the Roy Hibberts of the world won't be winning too many more games with three-pointers. But don't expect the extra distance to affect top shooters like Stephen Curry, Robert Vanden or Tyrese Rice.
