Big changes coming to women's college basketball

MOUNT CARMEL  — It wasn’t as if the women’s college basketball game was broken and needed a fix. Still, the NCAA announced major changes to the sport Monday, changes as dramatic as any in the history of the sport.
Wabash Valley College women’s coach Zach Loll isn’t about to quibble over the reasoning behind the changes. He is embracing them.
“I am excited for the changes,” said Loll Tuesday between sessions of a youth basketball camp at Spencer Sports Center. “It gives a breath of fresh air into the women’s game. It’s been picking up a lot more attention nationally and you see a lot more younger girls playing the sport.”
NJCAA schools like Wabash Valley, which advanced to the Division I national tournament in a 28-7 season completed in March, will also be making the switch. Juco schools automatically use NCAA standards in all sports.
