2016–17 NCAA Division I men's basketball season

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The 2016–17 NCAA Division I men's basketball season began on November 11, 2016. The first tournament was the 2K Sports Classic, and ended with the Final Four in Glendale, Arizona on April 3, 2017. Practices officially began on September 30, 2016.[1]

Rule changes[edit]

The only rule change for the regular season was allowing coaches to ask for timeouts in situations of inbounds on offense or defense. Coaches are still not permitted to call timeouts in live-ball situations.

The NCAA approved a number of experimental rule changes for use in the 2017 postseason NIT:[2]

  • Team fouls were reset to zero at the 10:00 mark of each half. This effectively divided the game into quarters for purposes of team fouls.
  • The "one-and-one" foul shot was not used. Instead, starting with the fifth total foul in each 10-minute period, non-shooting fouls by the defensive team resulted in two free throws, with the only exception being administrative technical fouls, this mirrored foul counting in NCAA women's basketball, which has been played in quarters since the 2015–16 season.
  • In a feature unique in the college game, but similar to that used by the NBA and WNBA, each overtime was considered a separate period for purposes of accumulating team fouls. The team foul limit was 3 per overtime period, with all non-shooting team fouls thereafter by the defense resulting in two free throws.
  • The shot clock was reset to 20 seconds whenever the ball was inbounded in the frontcourt.

Conference membership changes[edit]

Only one school joined a new conference for 2016–17:

Coastal Carolina Big South Conference Sun Belt Conference

New arenas[edit]

  • South Dakota opened the new Sanford Coyote Sports Center. The completion of the 6,000-seat venue saw the South Dakota men's basketball, women's basketball, and women's volleyball teams move out of the considerably larger DakotaDome, which remains home to football, track & field, and swimming & diving. The first men's basketball game in the new arena was an exhibition on November 4 against NCAA Division III Loras, with the Coyotes winning 106–76;[38] the first official men's game was the second leg of a November 13 doubleheader with the Coyotes women's team, with the men defeating Bowling Green 78–72.[39]

This proved to be the last season for four Division I teams in their then-current venues:

Conference winners and tournaments[edit]

Each of the 32 Division I athletic conferences ends its regular season with a single-elimination tournament, the team with the best regular-season record in each conference is given the number one seed in each tournament, with tiebreakers used as needed in the case of ties for the top seeding. The winners of these tournaments receive automatic invitations to the 2017 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament. This was the first season in which the Ivy League held a conference tournament.[139]
