'Big' Final Four Comes to North Texas

The NCAA Final Four returns to North Texas for the first time in decades — bringing what’s expected to be a record crowd — there will be more winners than the athletes on the court.

It will be "big."

Fan spending is estimated to exceed $140 million in Dallas and Arlington as more than 80 percent of the hotel rooms in the two cities fill with out-of-state visitors and as restaurateurs savor a double-digit increase in business.

AT&T Stadium will hold more than 85,000 fans and there will be more than 19,000 credentialed attendees.

The economic impact report pegged the total spending in Texas “associated with” Final Four visitors at $275.88 million.

Like I said, "BIG."

NCAA College Basketball Rule Changes



The NCAA has approved adding an arc three feet from the basket, inside which a defender cannot take a charge

The organization said Thursday its Playing Rules Oversight Panel had approved several recommended rules changes for college basketball during a conference call Monday.

The women's 3-point line will move back a foot to 20 feet, 9 inches next season, the same distance the men have used since 2008-09. In both the men's and women's games, the terminology for fouls will be changed to match the NBA. Intentional fouls will now be called Flagrant 1 and flagrant fouls will be called Flagrant 2.

Women's teams will also test a 10-second half-court rule in exhibition games next season.

The men's and women's basketball rules committees recommended the changes earlier this month.
