    The rule has always struck me as bizarre. College basketball has through the years had a series of bizarre rules and rules changes, many of which were seemingly racist in nature. I recall the no dunk and no freshman on varsity teams rules back in the day. With the advent of the NBA Developmental League and USA basketball training programs, the NBA's concerns about getting players who were too raw and undeveloped have slowly been ameliorated. I really feel that the rule change will help UConn by lessening the dominance of teams like Duke and Kentucky which will no longer be able to horde "ready for the NBA talent", which will instead go straight to the NBA leaving Duke and KU to "settle" for guys in the next tier of like 10-20.
