With the NCAA’s rulebook on the line, the NCAA and the NCAA Tournament committee will be watching the future of college basketball for the first time since the NCAA Basketball Rules were adopted in 1996.
The new rules are based on a four-game rule system, and there are four major things that will come into play.1.
If a team wins three games, it will get a chance to play in the NCAA tournament.
The conference that hosts the game will be the conference that has the best record at the end of the regular season.2.
If two teams from the same conference meet, that team will be considered a “relegated” team.
That means that it will not be allowed to play a game in the tournament.3.
If one team from a conference is a “division” team and the other is a conference-relegating team, the conference with the better record will have the opportunity to play the second team in that conference in the final game of the season.4.
Teams will be awarded a “seed” based on how many games they lose to their conference.5.
If the teams from two conferences play, then the two teams who are in a tie for the second seed will play in a first-round game.6.
The “best-of-five” format will be used in the first three games of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, with the best-of 3 and best- of 5 games in the second game.7.
Teams with the worst record will be eliminated from the tournament, while teams with the most wins in a single season will play a playoff.8.
If both teams win their games, then they will play for the championship, but if both teams lose, then one team will play the rest of the tournament in a “best of seven” format.9.
If at least one team wins in both games, the game-winner will be determined by a 3-point attempt.10.
In the first game, a team with a winning record will play as the defending champion.
If they win two games, they will be placed in the semifinals.
If either team loses three games to the other, the team with the worse record will win in a best-3-5 format.
The following rules are what will be in play for 2019:The new system will allow the top two teams in the standings to earn automatic bids to the NCAA championship tournament, as well as the top four teams from each conference.
The rules will be implemented this season, with a first game to be played April 7 in the third round of the 2018 NCAA Tournament.
