Transcript Steitz, who has been accused of sounding like a broken record many times during his tenure. "Behind all our deliberations, we want to maintain the delicate balance between the offense and defense. That's what has made the college game so popular. We have to recognize that the coaching has never been better; the players are fantastic; the officiating has improved tremendously, regardless of what some people may think; and the media coverage has been explosive. "The in-season and tournament play has reached new heights in caliber of competition and in interest. When Division I starts its tournament, it's two weeks of hysteria across the country." Does all this mean that everything is so perfect with the game that the rules committee can go on a permanent vacation? Hardly. Steitz and his 13-member committee, which represents more than 300 years of experience in coaching, officiating and administering the game, is constantly at work. The job of research never ceases. In describing his committee, Steitz calls it "a conservative rather than an ultra-liberal court by conscious design in that the organizations represented are not anxious to change rules without research to substanti- Indiana coach Bob Knight utilized the three- point shot to his advantage in the 1987 championship win over Syracuse. ate a change. The committee does not want to disturb the delicate balance between offense and defense radically. "It is quite simple to change or rewrite a rule, but what effect does that change have on maintaining that sorely needed delicate balance? If one were to increase the penalty for a foul or violation, it encourages delay or stalling-type tactics. By the same token, if the penalty for a foul or violation is not severe enough, it encourages a rough type, foul-filled contest. "Any time a code of playing rules in a sport makes it profitable for one to foul, or to violate the rule for profit, it is a poor rule." Meanwhile, basketball's 100th birthday party will be an international affair, starting in December of 1991. According to Basketball Hall of Fame Executive Director Joe O'Brien, the 174 nations who play the game will be participating in the year-long celebration. What is in the future for the basketball rules? "I see not too far down the road a widening of the lane.. .quite possibly to the Olympic dimensions of 18 feet on the end line — six feet wider than ours," Steitz answers. "The idea is to open up the inside a little more and minimize the rough low post play. "As for raising the hoop, I probably won't be around — but it WILL happen." $) Forty-five Second Clock, Three-Point Shot Increase Scoring Two of the college game's most innovative alterations occurred during the 1980s. The 45-second shot clock (1986) and the three-point shot (1987) have raised the amount of points scored by Division I teams since the inception of the changes. Beginning in 1986, when the 45-second clock was introduced, two teams averaged 138.7 points-a-game. Since then, point production by two teams has risen every season — 145.5 average (1987), 147.8 average (1988) and 151.4 average (1989). In 1987, when the three-point shot was injected into the game, the number of attempts and conversions have increased on a yearly basis. And from early 1990 reports, the three-point field goal is as popular as ever.
