Thread: Has the 3-point shot ruined college basketball?

    Has the 3-point shot ruined college basketball?

    Yes. It encourages players to take lower percentage shots, it's dull, and the line isn't far enough out to warrant the extra point.

    Being boring is what ruined college basketball. All the good players being in the NBA ruined college basketball.

    Not as much as MTV's Rock N Jock's 25-point shot has.

    An open 3 can be a higher percentage shot than a contested 15 footer. Especially when you factor in Points/attempt.

    But yes, the line should be where the NBA 3 point line is. There's almost no point to attempting a 2 that isn't a lay up or dunk. The other thing I'd change is the 35 second shot clock because it encourages 15 seconds of aimless perimeter dribbling before getting serious about running a play.
