Re: NCAA rules committee approves moving 3-point line back a foot
I tend to think it will. The reason, only in my opinion, that you see a large % of shots from at least a foot beyond is because I think that is a general comfort level of clearance in a fast paced game in order to be sure a player is clearly beyond the arc after catching on the move or stopping one's dribble on the run, etc.
Of course there are certainly situations where players "toe the line".
However, I think moving the line back 1 foot will actually move most of the shots taken back 1 foot also in relation. I agree it will not affect the overall output of most of the guards and good shooting wings, as we certainly do see them taking and making a high % from "way" out. But the marginal chuckers will suffer, and I think there are plenty of them out there right now.
