College basketball referees are sticking to new foul guidelines

The college basketball season has crossed the midway point, and the general consensus is that coaches are satisfied with how games are being officiated under new guidelines. They’re not rules changes, but directives to call what’s already on the books, such as no hand-checking or arm bars from defenders on the dribbler. “I think it’s cleaned up the game,” Kentucky coach John Calipari said. Scoring is running about 5.5 percent ahead of last season.
