NCAA close to moving men's 3-point line

College basketball players might want to start polishing up their long-range shooting. The NCAA men's basketball rules committee approved a measure Thursday that would move the 3-point line back one foot in 2008-09 -- from 19 feet, 9 inches to 20 feet, 9 inches. If approved by the playing rules oversight committee on May 25, it would mark the first major alteration to the 3-point shot since its inception in 1986-87. (Raleigh News & Observer)
