VIDEO: Explaining NCAA men's basketball rule changes for 2015-16

4

Courtesy of the NCAA, here's a video guide explaining the various rule changes going into effect for the 2015-16 men's basketball season. Presented by J.D. Collins, the NCAA's coordinator of officials for men's basketball, this 15-minute spot explains the changes in the rulebook designed to decrease physical play and increase freedom of movement.

Key hits: kickouts by shooters will no longer be a foul on the defender (and may be on the offensive player), you can't score on a charge anymore period, the shot clock can be reviewed the entire game, the defensive arc has been expanded, verticality clarifications, defensive armbars are legal on offensive players with their back to the basket, faking fouls can now be reviewed, new rules on the 10-second count, coaches can only call timeout during a dead ball, and more.

This is good stuff, and we can't recommend highly enough that you watch it. In fact, if you don't watch it and then you scream about fouls in game threads and you're wrong, we might... make fun of you. Muahahah.

Look for a breakdown of this video from TheBigE in the next few days.
