The NCAA Rules Committee voted in the off-season to make the following changes:

Reduced the shot clock to 35 seconds from 45 seconds.
UPlayers can wear a plain black or white patch on the shoulder or sleeve of the game jersey to
honor the memory of a deceased person.
U Numbers must be centered on the game jersey. Teams must be in compliance by the beginning of
the 1996-97 season.
*A foul shall be ruled intentional if while playing the ball, a player causes excessive contact (hard
foul) with an opponent.
EThe game clock will be stopped after successful field goals in the last minute of the game and
the last minute of any overtime period with no substitutions allowed.
The shot clock will not be reset when a defensive player causes a held ball and the possession
arrow favors the offensive team.
Eliminated the five-second dribbling violation when closely guarded.
Expanded the rule concerning the use of profanity to include abusive and obscene language in an
effort to curtail verbal misconduct by players and coaches.
Determined that any individual who participates in a fight during his team's final game of the
season will be suspended from participating in the league's next regular-season game for which
that individual would be eligible.

After two years of living inside,
Michigan will have to make achange.
The thrust of the Wolverine of-
fense the past two seasons has been
getting the ball to Chris Webber down
low orpassing it off to Juwan Howard
for a baby hook from five feet. This
year will be different.
"You'll see a lot of play this year
with four guys on the perimeter and
Juwan Howard being our productive
guy inside," Michigan coach Steve
Fisher said.
Because of a lack of size in the
paint, the Wolverine forwards will be
counted on more than ever to nail the
15-foot jumper from the corner or the
three-pointer from the top of the key.
And they must shoot better than a
year ago. Although the Wolverines
knocked down almost 50 percent of
their shots last season, most came
from less than 10 feet away. As a
team, Michigan shot only 35 percent
(seventh in the Big Ten) from beyond
the arc.
A majority of that scoring punch
will have to come from Ray Jackson.
The 6-foot-6 forward averaged 9
points and 4.1 rebounds per game a
season ago, but picked up his offen-
sive production following a shoulder
injury that sidelined him for most of
January.
Jackson's highest-scoring games
of the year came during Michigan's
NCAA championship run, proving
that he could come up with the points
when needed.
Jackson, who made his name on
defense his freshman and sophomore
seasons, is now ready to shine on the
offensive end and take his game to
another level.
"I'm just going to step my game
up - passing and especially the re-
bounding," Jackson said. "Just doing
whatever, when we need it. We've
got to make up for (the loss of) a 20-

point average."
Jackson will have to
interior on occasions as we
will make use of his new 1

"If I get a little fella
