1. Men's Hoops Rules Committee Recap


The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel approved allowing men's basketball officials to assess Class B technical fouls to players who fake being fouled, beginning in the 2022-23 season. 

If a player is called for flopping, the opposing team would shoot one free throw. Previously, officials would issue a warning before assessing a technical foul in subsequent incidents judged to be flopping.

Committee members defined flopping as an unsporting act that occurs when a player attempts to influence an official's judgment by creating an appearance that a foul has been committed when there has been incidental or no contact.

The panel also approved continuing experimental technology rules for conferences to allow teams to view live video and preloaded video on their bench for the upcoming season if the conference submits a waiver request.

Conferences that choose to use this experimental rule must decide what technology can be used within its parameters.

NCAA women's basketball teams can also experiment with this technology rule during conference games for the upcoming season if the conference submits a waiver request.

2.  Midwest Unveils New Look



The Midwest Conference (MWC) is proud to announce a refreshed brand identity, developed in partnership with a full range of conference stakeholders. Beginning in January 2022, the conference set out to evaluate the status of its existing identity and reimagine how its story could be told in an exciting and meaningful way. The creative process was guided by New Jersey-based Skye Design Studios (SDS), a national leader in sport branding.
“As a league that has endured for over 100 years and remains true to its original mission, the Midwest Conference sought to modernize its logo while honoring its past,” said MWC Executive Director Heather Benning. “The outcome of this process is an updated mark that is more dynamic in color and intentional in style than our previous logo.”
The new identity builds on the visual equity of the historic conference marks, retaining the flame and general layout, but evolving it to a contemporary style.

    3. Mount Union Dedicates Football Center

    by Mike Popovich, Canton Repository

    "The Mount Union campus Dom Capers saw 50 years ago when he graduated looks a lot different.

    The longtime NFL coach helped make one of the new additions a reality.

    Thanks to $2 million from Capers and his wife Karen, Mount Union was able to construct a building for the football program. The university dedicated the Dom and Karen Capers Football Coaching Center on Saturday.

    Capers is the second largest donor among Mount Union alumni. The press box at newly-renamed Kehres Stadium is also named in his honor.

    The 5,600-square foot coaching center opened in 2020. It includes coaches offices and a team meeting and film room that can be split into smaller rooms."
