College Throwball

Breaking:On final days of TN Meetings, many big changes made to college throwball regular season, postseason (All details in post)

On the final day of the 2020 Spring TN Meetings, the committee has agreed upon changes to college throwball.

College Throwball Rules (2020-21 Season)
1.The regular season will start the first Monday in November and go through the first weekend in March.
2.Each team will play 14-25 conference games.
3.College Throwball is scrapping divisions. Every team plays every team in their respective conferences.
4.There are no assigned rivalry weeks.
5.New conference members from disbanded conferences (like Southern New York who went from the disbanded ANorth to the ACC, will be forming their own conferences shortly).
6.The NCAA Tournament locations will be released in a later post. The tournament will be returning to a sixty-eight team tournament with four regions:East, Midwest, South, and West.
7.Unlike the NCAA College Basketball Tournament where the last four at-large bids are played as eleven seeds, the college throwball tournament is USUALLY set to have the last at-large qualifiers play the first four as twelve seeds. Automatic qualifier bids to usually one bid conferences will be seeded USUALLY at 11, 13, 14, 15, and two 16 seeds. The other four sixteens (the last four automatic bids in the tournament will play in the first four as well).
8.While invitationals will not be played during the 2020-2021 college throwball season, there will be neutral “sets” where teams will play up to three games in that location versus other teams that are there. Everything you need to know about those will be announced and put in a post later today.
9.A schedule for the entire college throwball season will be out shortly.

New Rule Changes:
1.Old Rule:Players had to at least be two years out of high school before entering NTBL Draft. New Rule:Players only have to spend a year out of college to enter the NTBL Draft (one and done and may spend it in college, NTBL G-League, or the WTBL).
2.Old Rule:Players are granted one time transfer waiver to play immediately. New Rule:Rule is confirmed, stays the same.
