crisler center question 3 point line

Submitted by newfoundhbomb on January 8th, 2012 at 12:26 PM

i was watching the womans basketball game yesterday against Ohio and i noticed that there is only one 3 point line on the court and i believe its the mens line.  Today i am checking out the Indiana PSU game and there are two 3 point lines one for mens and one for the women.  my question is why does Crisler only have one 3 point line? sorry if this is covered somewhere else or you feel it is a dump question.  it just stuck me as odd    thanks

EDIT: Sigh....Blockquote fail :(

<blockquote>In women's basketball, the 3-point line will be moved back to 20 feet, 9 inches, which is the standard in the men's game. That means those floors that have been home to both men's and women's games no longer must contain multiple 3-point lines</blockquote>

Crisler was floor was re-done. Therefore only having one, whereas old courts still haven't gotten rid of the old Women's three line.

But as others have said, the womens line has been moved back. I feel like a lot of other arenas will keep the closer line so they can continue to host high school basketball games, which I don't believe Crisler ever does.

The basketball semi-finals and finals have long been held at the Breslin Center, and still are.  And some of the quarter-final games are often held at CMU or U of D, as well.  Maybe there is a rule like that for regular season events, I don't know.
