Kevin Durant Forces NCAA To Push Back 3-Point Line

The NCAA announced today that it will be pushing back the men's college basketball 3-point line a foot to 20' 9". We assume this radical step was somehow related to Kevin Durant's season of dominance.

It's unclear how the change will affect the game, aside from lowering three point shooting throughout college basketball. We see the change as a good thing in that it will hopefully convince Connor Atchley to shoot less. You can read the article here including positive spin from Billy Donovan and Texas A&M sharpshooter Josh Carter. Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl was less enthusiastic, suggesting that "if it's not broke, don't fix it."
