Rule change: WNBA brings no-charge restricted area
May 16th, 2012 at 2:45pm
 
NBA style no-charge restricted area added to the game this year. This should help with penetrating offense. I expect to see more guards slashing to the basket this year.

Guess Danielle Adams will have to finally play some defense instead of flopping to get calls.  Wink

Is my memory wrong or does the WNBA no-charge circle look much larger than when the NBA first had the dashed circle under the basket?

I accidentally saw an NBA game last night and noticed that their no-charge zone is exactly like the WNBA's now.

If I remember right it was a smaller dashed circle under the basket when it was first introduced, then it disappeared and became the ref's judgment. Now it's back on the court as real line.

According to my research..

The WNBA/NBA restricted area is 4' around the basket, in college its 3' and in FIBA about 4.1' (1.25m)

What I can't find out is how the rule is written.  Do you have to be completely outside the circle to take a charge?

Yes. In practice, your feet have to be outside of it, though technically if you're over the edge of the circle but go on tippy-toes to get outside it, that should also be a blocking foul.

Am I remembering right that it was originally a dashed circle under the basket in the NBA and then became invisible for a few seasons?

I didn't even know there was one in NCAA. I've seen lots of charges called right under the basket.

It was definitely never invisible -- can't remember whether it was dashed at first or not. The NCAA just voted to paint the circle on the floor this season, when enforcement went from zero to any contact outside the circle automatically being a charge, which was fun.

Dang, I could have sworn that they just removed it from the court at some point and let the refs measure it with their eyes.

The circle will help because there are lots of refs and fans (at least at the women's games) who are completely unaware of this rule. I have enough aggravation dealing with loud fans who don't know what traveling is other than their team never does it.

I shot my first NCAA game of the season and while the circles are clearly painted on the floor now and the refs are calling it right, some players seem to be unaware of this circle. Zone defenses are parking their center under the basket and are baffled when get called for a blocking foul after they get run over. Three calls in this game alone!

...

I wanted to yell at the other team about it but that wouldn't make me too popular with the home crowd.  Sad
