Of all the rule changes enacted — a ban on coaches calling timeouts during live-ball situations; the end of the five-second-closely-guarded count; the sanctioning of pregame and halftime dunking — the most consequential might be the renewed emphasis on allowing greater freedom of movement for players without the ball.

Coaches have handled the 30-second shot clock differently. Penn State coach Patrick Chambers said he started to make the transition with his team in July. Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan installed the team's press and press break earlier than normal, "just in case," he said. Turgeon, meanwhile, will have officials in for a scrimmage next week.
