Seton Hill basketball coach Scott Storrie is set to make his mark as the new face of the NCAA basketball rulebook.
According to a press release from Seton, the NCAA has finalized rules for a “strict and objective” approach to the sport of basketball that Storries “has previously spoken about and demonstrated through his work with the college basketball community.”
Seton Hill athletics will adopt the NCAA’s “procedural, technical and substantive” rules that were adopted in January.
Storrys rules will be enforced on March 6.
“I am truly proud of my staff and players for taking an aggressive stance in implementing the changes that are needed to bring NCAA basketball to the level it is today,” Storres new head coach said.
“I look forward to bringing my best to the team and the game of basketball.”
The rules are expected to be finalized by the NCAA by the end of the year.
Seton and other Division I basketball schools are expected continue to implement them as the NCAA tries to maintain a unified, consistent and fair playing field for all.
The new rules will also apply to Division I men’s and women’s basketball teams.
The changes will allow the players to be fined or suspended for violations ranging from a violation of team rules to a violation stemming from a game.
Stors rule will also allow coaches to be fired if they are found to have violated team rules.
A final rule is expected to become effective on March 1.
The NCAA said in a release that it was working with the NCAA to implement Storrians new rule-set and that the changes are “unprecedented in the sport’s history.”
“The NCAA has always worked with our teams and coaches to ensure a clear, rigorous and objective approach to compliance with all of the rule’s requirements,” NCAA associate director of compliance and enforcement David Sarnoff said in the release.
“The NCAA’s enforcement policies are designed to ensure fairness, fairness and integrity.
These changes will provide an effective and consistent approach to this important aspect of our enforcement process.”
The new rule set is expected not only to create a more unified playing field but will also reduce the amount of time teams have to prepare and work on their game plans, and will help reduce the risk of injury during a game for players.
In the past, Storrians players were suspended for the first 30 minutes of a game if they violated team or conference rules, but the NCAA said this would be the first time that players would be punished for a violation.
Storries new rules also include an additional “bounty” system, which is expected, in addition to fines and suspensions, to allow players to win big-time championships and to allow more scholarships for young players.
The rules were originally put into place in 2014 as part of a larger effort to reform the way the NCAA handles its sports programs.
The reforms have already made Seton the No. 1 program in the country in Division I and the No, 1 team in the nation in Division II.
