    I thought they brought it back. You do have to be carefully of the paint though in the NBA while on Defense.

    You called me a troll for stating the fact that Duke is hands down the best program the last 25 years in basketball if you go by facts. Just because I am a UNC fan doesn't mean I am not fair to the truth or put blindfolds up. I am a proud Grad, but I am an honest Grad first.

    No, because Lebron (not LeBron) plays the 4... The other guys aren't true centers either.

    I was unaware that the shot clock was changed, and zone defenses are disallowed in the NCAA.

    zones are allowed in both leagues but not used very often in either with the exception of a Cuse team and a few Big 10 teams. No NBA teams play zone because the shooters are too good. and with the new rules points of emphasis to eliminate hand checking in college, the shot clock being decreased is the next change that will be proposed and passed since it's more like the NBA already.
