UConn used its final exhibition game of the season to experiment with the rules, using the larger basketball used for men's games, a 24-second shot clock and the international 3-point line distance.
UConn got a special waiver from the NCAA to try many changes, including a wider lane. Two NCAA rules officials watched and planned to bring film of the game back to rules committee for discussion.
UConn easily beat Vanguard University 98-18.
The teams seemed to have a tough time shooting with the bigger basketball. UConn hit just two of its first eight shots, and those baskets were layups. The teams were a combined 8 of 39 from 3-point range, including 1 of 18 from behind the arc in the first half.
