Basketball three-point line and lane to remain the same

Indianapolis -- The NCAA Executive Committee, meeting at the NCAA Convention, ruled that the three-point line will remain at its current distance (19 feet, 9 inches from the center of the basket to the outside edge of the three-point line), for all three divisions. The free-throw lane also will remain the current width and configuration.

An original recommendation from the NCAA Men's and Women's Basketball Rules Committees to extend the three-point line and change the free-throw lane to a trapezoid starting in 2004-05 for men's basketball, and to extend the three-point line for women's basketball starting in 2004-05, had been considered but the divisional governing bodies removed the free-throw lane piece from that proposal.
