INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The 3-point line is moving back in men's college basketball. The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel announced the arc will be moved to 22 feet, 1 ¾ inches for the 2019-20 season, matching the international distance. The change will not go into effect in Division II and III until 2020-21 due to the potential financial impact on schools. The 3-point line was last moved in 2008-09, extending a foot to 20 feet, 9 inches. The women's line will stay the same.
