Some rule adjustments to look for in college basketball next season:

-- Flopping may get tougher now that defenders must be set before an offensive player begins an upward motion, instead of just before an offensive player is in the air.

-- Officials will be able to go to the monitor more often late in the games.

-- A shorter shot clock didn't get enough support to be voted on.

-- There will be more leeway in the way officials call elbow contact above the shoulders, meaning it doesn't have to automatically be considered a flagrant one or two if deemed accidental. (Kevin Parrom was ejected with a flagrant two at Washington State last season when he knocked down DaVonte Lacy with an elbow but it was deemed intentional, so that ruling would not change under the new rules).

-- Here's an NCAA.org story detailing all the changes.

--

Yuma's Lutes Casino isn't named after the former UA coach, but he just about owned the place Thursday while visiting with Sean Miller and Greg Byrne.

In case you missed it, the full version of the Angelo Chol story in the San Diego Union-Tribune quotes Chol saying "it wasn't a fun way to play" while always looking over his shoulder to see if he'd be taken out.

Ken Bone says Klay Thompson has fallen into a perfect scenario with Golden State.

Josh Davis is going to check out San Diego State and Gonzaga, Jeff Goodman says.
