Kevin Durant Suggests Two Major Rule Changes in College Basketball (My)

Before becoming one of the most lethal scorers in NBA history, Kevin Durant was a one-and-done star at Texas in 2006–07. The Longhorns great still follows college hoops, and during a wild Saturday afternoon in the sport (and an off-day for his Phoenix Suns), he proposed two significant rule changes to align it more closely with pro ball.

First, he calls for college basketball to add the defensive three seconds rule, a rule that was instituted in the NBA ahead of the 2001–02 season. Second, he wants the men’s college game to move to four quarters, rather than two 20 minute halves.

Durant is probably not alone in looking for the college game to more closely resemble NBA basketball.

NCAA women’s basketball made the shift to four quarters ahead of the 2015–16 season, so a change in the men’s game doesn’t seem out of the question down the line.

Arguably outdated rules aside, Durant likely had a pretty fun day of watching college hoops. His Longhorns had one of the afternoon’s most dramatic wins, knocking off No. 9 Baylor 75–73 with a coast-to-coast buzzer-beater by Tyrese Hunter.

Texas moves to 13–5 (2–3 in Big 12 play) with the much-needed win.
