    It makes it close and convenient for me. Now if we just could get them to advertise the date a little bit for CLF show. She does not have many shows, and their was not much heads up at all prior to a show.

    the only way we seem to know of the radio talk shows is if one of our friends texts us the time and often they don't find out til that day, or that afternoon......

    I noticed that the Lady Zag and/or CLF's twitter page usually posted about the Lisa Fortier show last year, but it was also many times posted the day of the show, not giving people a lot of notice.

    - back to the new floor, I of course notice the new 3 point line.
    - personally I'm excited that it has again been moved back a few inches, as I think basketball is too top heavy with 3 point shots.
    - plus if we are trying to mold the team into a transition, fast break team, moving the line back might not effect us as much as teams that heavily rely upon that shot.

    - then again the move might be marginal......in that when used in nit the shooting percentage was just a point or two under what the country shot from the 3 line over the course of the whole year (men's stats).

    I never understood/understand the NCAA reasoning on having a 3-point line distance different than the NBA/WNBA or the international distance.

    For the 2019/2020 D-1 NCAA Mbb season, the NCAA approved the measure to move the 3-point line back to the international distance of 22'-1.75". This is actually moved the 3-point line quite a bit. The previous 3-point line distance in the NCAA Mbb prior to 2008/2009 was 19'-9" but for the 2008/2009 season the 3-point line was moved back to 20'-9" where it has been ever since until this year. So this year the Mbb 3-point line distance was moved 16.75" further back than it was last year. Based on the (2019) NIT results where the 3-point line was moved back to the international distance as a trial, according to the NCAA, the number of 3-point shots attempted was almost exactly the same as during the regular season, but the average percentage of made 3's dropped from 35.2% during the regular season to 33% during the NIT tournament.

    The women's 3 point line distance has not changed for this upcoming season. Moving the 3-point line distance back to the international distance has been approved on a trial basis for all post-season tournaments but not including the NCAA tournament. The Mbb had a 2-year trial in the NIT before they agreed to move the line back, so I would expect that it will take a couple of years before the NCAA Wbb gets with the program.

    - good too know
    - interesting that the change is not for both men and women.
    - guess that in part is why the court has two 3 point lines.

    - still hoping for a fast pace team, shots early in the clock.
    - seems to me when the women get down to their "7 second offense", their success ratio is not good, well to be blunt but more accurate, it is bad.
