Geno Auriemma likes the rules changes coming to women's college basketball next season. In fact, the University of Connecticut's Hall of Fame coach would love to see more change.

The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel announced on June 8 it has adopted proposals and recommendations set forth last month by the NCAA Women's Basketball Rules Committee. They include games being played in four 10-minute quarters rather than two 20-minute halves, a change in the foul systems, teams being able to advance the ball to the frontcourt on a time out in the final minute of the fourth quarter or overtime, and teams not receiving a new 10-second backcourt count when a throw-in results from the following: the ball is deflected out of bounds by the defense; a held ball and the possession arrow favors the offensive team; a technical foul is called on the offensive team while the ball is in its backcourt.
