    What do you think? I disagree with the move as stated.

    Personally, I think the move should come:
    1)only if the line is equal to the International line, and
    2)only if the move is for both men and women. I hate having many lines on a basketball court. Some already look like a mess with multi-sport courts having all their lines on the gym floor at the same time (Mostly smaller and mid-major schools).

    I would like to see it moved to NBA range. I think there are way too many 3's being shot. I would like to see more emphasis on running an offense and passing rather than just running down the court and throwing up a 3.

    I agree. Moving the line back discourages centers and players who have no business shooting 3's from hoisting them up like they are free throws.

    Where is the "NAG" - National Orginazational of Women. I' sure they would want equality with men in regards to the placement of the 3 point line. And while they are at it, why not do away with girls teams, they should compete to be on the "mens" team. We are all equal arent we?
