Elmore said most shot blockers ?? such as Kentucky's Willie Cauley Stein ?? will go after every shot. While he played, Elmore used that to his advantage because guys would go right into his chest. The first time he would take a charge. The next time, the player would take off a step early to avoid the charge, and that amount of room would allow him to block the shot.

"When Josh Hairston comes into the game, a guy drives to the basket, he is not going after the shot," Elmore said. "He is trying to step because he knows he can't block the shot. They don't have shot blockers on that team."

Coaches vary on how much taking charges is a specific skill, a talent that some players master. When asked whether this new interpretation diminishes a specific skill that some players possess, Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall paused, searching for the right words.

The charge can be one of the biggest game changing plays in college basketball. It can swiftly turn momentum, abruptly ending a prime scoring opportunity. All Iowa State fans remember Ohio State's Aaron Craft drawing a controversial and critical charge in the waning moments of last year's third round NCAA tournament game.

Though not extinct, the charge this season has become a rarely seen call. During this three week NCAA tournament, players will barrel toward the basket, and a defensive player will slide over, plant his feet and brace for a collision. But now coaches know that when an official blows his whistle, the call more than likely will go against the defender.

Several coaches said they dramatically deemphasized taking charges in practice this season. The play, which occurs in virtually every game, occurs in a split second. Mike Davis, the Texas Southern coach, called it the hardest call in college basketball. And in this NCAA tournament, coaches know that the block charge call will almost certainly always favor offenses. But others point to players such as Marquette's Chris Otule, a big man with a limited offensive skill set who found a niche by sacrificing his body to take charges.

I was the best at doing that," Elmore said. "That was part of the mind game, but I am surprised guys today have not figured it out.".

Brown remembered the official, Adidas Sl Loop Tie Dye whom Brown declined to name, turning toward the coach and saying, "Larry, you know there are no charges anymore."

"Maybe," he said. "That is what I'll say."

Iowa State guard DeAndre Kane was called for a charge in the Big 12 championship game against Baylor and also earlier in the tournament against Kansas State. Kane told USA TODAY Sports that he thought those calls were supposed to favor the offense this season.

Brad Underwood, the Stephen F. Austin coach, said he has deemphasized it in practice and changed how he rotates defensively because of the new interpretation. And he doesn't like it.

"He has gotten some calls, but it's frustrating. Don't modify the charge block rule. That is what college basketball is about. That is why people watch it instead of the NBA."

During the offseason, the NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel adopted significant officiating rule changes, including enforcing a different interpretation of the block charge call. Beginning this season, secondary defenders had to have their feet planted and be firmly established before the offensive player begins his upward motion to shoot or pass. If that doesn't occur, the collision should result in a foul on the defender.

On Feb. 12, Washington's Desmond Simmons slid into the driving lane, planted his feet and waited for Stanford's Chasson Randle to crash into him. The charge call, which came with 5.3 seconds left, was the decisive play in Washington's 64 60 victory.

When you are 73 year old Larry Brown, who began his head coaching career more than four decades ago, you think you know a charge when you see one. And in one game this season, the SMU coach witnessed what he believed was a clear charge and made that known to the official, one Brown greatly respects.

"If you are there, they will still call a charge," Iowa coach Fran McCaffery said. "But you had better be there in position. None of this running around and trying to time it up and fall down. There were times these guys were diving, and three cheerleaders were getting killed on every drive to the basket. So I really applaud the NCAA on addressing that particular area."

Marshall said the Shockers primarily have shot blockers rather than players who work on taking charges. He said it is a dangerous play for a secondary defender to move over and slide underneath an offensive player who is driving to the basket.

Len Elmore, the television analyst and former Maryland standout, said North Carolina was the best team at taking charges. Then Duke started to take a lot of charges, he said, which was compensation for not having a lot of shot blockers.

"Coach told me go the other way, don't react to the refs," he said. "I'm trying to do a better job with that. You can't say, 'Hey, ref, can you change the call?'"

"You have a completely selfless 6 foot 10, 270 pound kid who will rotate over and stand in front of a guard and fall down," Marquette assistant Brad Autry said. "He will take it directly in the chest. And because you want more scoring, you are going to discourage that? That's a good rule?

"They are trying to get scoring up," Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg said. "And it was an adjustment. There are a lot of teams that pride themselves on getting in there and taking charges. That's one of the most important stats you look at. All of it now benefits the offense, and ultimately I think it will be good for the game."It is possible to still draw charges, though it's rare.

led the free world in charges his first two years. It allowed him to play. It allows an undersized big man to play who can't get up and block shots. There's other ways to increase scoring that don't jeopardize the purity of the game."
