Women’s college basketball moving to four-quarter format

dt.common.streams.StreamServerThere has been a lot of talk in making some changes for men and women college basketball. For the men, the NBA has criticized the NCAA on how their product doesn’t prepare players to make the jump to the next level. Many believe that the shot clock will be reduced to 30 seconds for the upcoming season. While that is a great start, the NCAA has made a big change for women’s basketball. The NCAA announced that women’s college basketball will be moving to a four-quarter format next season.


NCAA women’s basketball games will be played in four 10-minute quarters next season.
The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel approved moving the game to the new format and away from the 20-minute halves the sport has always used in NCAA competition on a conference call today.

The NCAA Women’s Basketball Rules Committee, which initially recommended the rule change, believes the four-quarter format will enhance the flow of the game. The change also was endorsed by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association Board of Directors.


I think this is a good move for women’s basketball and I wouldn’t be surprised if the men have the same format in the future.
