This came out in March after post season play. OOC play is going to be so much fun as refs try to sort this out? What will this do with Golding's coaching style as reports from closed scrimmages report very aggressive play.

""New 3-point line
Men’s college basketball moved the 3-point line from 20-feet, nine inches to 22-feet, 1.75 inches. The women’s line remained the same, meaning on a number of college floors there will be two lines."

Why?

"“Players have been shooting it deeper," said Gavitt. “This should create more driving opportunities and posting opportunities. The difference in 3s taken and made may end up being marginal. Players can make that shot to the FIBA distance.""

"Shot clock resets to 20 seconds on an offensive rebound​

The plan with this change was to increase the flow of the game and add more possessions. The thinking was that there was no need to reset the shot clock to 30 seconds when teams wouldn’t need those 10 seconds to get the ball up the floor since they would already be in the offensive end of the court.

Collins said the main issue will be a technical one since a shot-clock operator would have two buttons at his disposal — one to reset to 30 seconds and one to reset to 20. If it’s a bang-bang offensive rebound then it might be difficult to manage in a split second or two.

Collins said if the ball were to get batted back to the mid-court line then it would be reset to 30."

"Get rid of flopping"


Gavitt said this will be the closest one to watch in November and December and as a result, be a teaching tool early in the season.

"The rules committee made it clear they want it out of the game," said Gavitt. "We will see a bunch of calls early and it will cause some anxiety for players and coaches but everyone will adjust."

Remember how some opponents would double or even triple team (i.e.-Rice) Bryson Williams and flopped if his bicep grazed them?

"But wait! There's more!"

"On a 3-point shot, Collins said they will be looking for any contact. If the player is shooting and the defender is flying by him without contact and the shooter goes to the floor then that’s a flop. They will also be looking to see if the shooter initiates contact, jerks his head back in an attempt to try and fool officials.

On a block or charge, if the player’s head goes back before the body does then the player could be flopping. Can there be a foul and a flop? Collins said yes. That’s when the offensive player makes contact with the defender and hits him enough that the defender steps back and embellishes the contact. That can be an offensive foul and a flop.""

A flagrant 1 foul is two shots and the ball and that means excessive in nature or unnecessary or avoidable, uncalled for or not required by the circumstances of the play.

A flagrant 2 foul is two shots and the ball and the player is ejected from the game. The rules committee added more words to describe this scenario, including brutal, harsh or cruel or dangerous or punishing.

“There will be more opportunities for teaching,” Gavitt said. “Everyone will adjust and a cleaner game for it."

I'm not sure about the flopping rule, but the shot clock and 3pt line changes happened after the 2018/19 season...

"The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel today approved moving the 3-point line to the international distance of 22 feet, 1¾ inches in women’s basketball, beginning with the 2021-22 season."-06/03/2021

https://www.ncaa.org/news/2021/6/3/international-3-point-line-distance-approved-in-women-s-basketball.aspx#:~:text=The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight,with the 2021-22 season.
That was for women's. Men's changes took effect after '18/'19 (after experimenting with the new rules during the '19 NIT).

Edited to add: It's weird -- the article in your OP is dated March '22, but it references games that all took place in November '19.

They need to bring the game into the modern times and reduce the shot clock to 24 seconds.
Exactly go to NBA rules 6 fouls and four 12-minute quarters with a 24-second shot clock. Why all the half-measures?
