Transcript Long Range Lament What Does The Future Hold For The Three-Point Shot? Billy Tubbs, Oklahoma's colorful coach, says fans "eat it (the three-pointer) up" and "kids want to play for a team that scores." By LINDA ROBERTSON Miami Herald College basketball's three-point shot experiment needs a little tinkering, most coaches and fans say, three years after it was introduced to open up a game being played too close to the hoop. According to an informal poll, 66 percent of college basketball fans and the vast majority of coaches think the shot should be more difficult and the three-point line should be moved from its present 19-foot, 9-inch distance from the basket. Most advocate the international distance of 20-6. "Teams are making a travesty of it," UCLA coach Jim Harrick said. "It's become a chip shot. We're rewarding players for something that's too easy." During the first round of the 1989 NCAA championship, the NCAA conducted a call- in survey of fans watching the games on tel evision. It was the second year a call-in question was posed on the screen. In 1988, fans overwhelmingly voted for showing more women's basketball games on television. Last year, 12,169 callers responded to the question: "What should be the distance for the men's college basketball three-point line?" The NCAA tallied 3,861 callers in favor of leaving the line where it is; 6,307 who want it moved to the international distance, and 2,001 who would like to see it shoved all the way back to the 23-9 NBA distance. Miami (Florida) coach Bill Foster agrees with fans who favor the status quo. "It makes the game so darn exciting," he said. "The games are never over. It think eventually it will move to the international distance, but by that time kids will be so used to shooting threes it won't be a hard transition." The NCAA Men's Basketball Rules Committee is polling coaches on the three- pointer with a questionnaire. The results will be discussed during the annual coaches' meeting at the Final Four in Denver. The three-point field goal was introduced at the start of the 1986-87 season after being used by 11 conferences the year before. The goal of the new field goal was to bring the outside shooter back into a game that was being dominated by big, physical post players. Houston's Phi Slamma Jamma style of play has given way to the run-and- shoot style of Oklahoma, Loyola Marymount and Kentucky. Partly because of the three-pointer, scoring in last year's NCAA championship jumped 15 points, from an average of 143 points per game (two teams) in 1988, to 158. During last season, scoring per game averaged 151.4 points, the highest total since 1975. Oklahoma coach Billy Tubbs set out to smash halftime and game scoring records this season. "The fans eat it up and the players want to play for a team that scores," Tubbs said. The three-point field goal was not adopted without first undergoing a test. During the tryout period, about 38 percent of the attempts were made. During its inaugural NCAA season, an average of 18.3 three-point shots were taken per game and seven were made for a shooting percentage of 38.4. In 1987-88, an average of 20.8 shots were taken and eight were made for a shooting percentage of 38.2. Last season, attempts were up to 23.6, with 8.9 made for a shooting percentage of 37.6. "I think the number of attempts is up because the first year you had one or two specialists per team who took the shot," said Gary Johnson, assistant statistics coordinator for the NCAA. "Now if anyone is open in three-point land, he takes the shot. "I like it where it is. Put it at a distance where nobody can make it and that wouldn't be any fun." Harrick said the statistics are somewhat misleading because so many teams take desperation shots toward the end of a game they are losing. "The stats include prayers at the end of a 97
