After Auburn rode a wave of incredible three-point shooting all the way to the Final Four last season, the NCAA decided to push back the three-point line in college basketball.
Coincidence? Depends on who you ask.
Former Auburn standout guards Jared Harper and Bryce Brown helped lead the way for the Tigers to make that historic run to the Final Four thanks to some clutch three-point shooting in the latest NCAA Tournament and both poked fun of the fact the rule came into effect soon after their unforgettable postseason run.
Harper made 37 percent of his three-pointers last season while Brown made an incredible 41 percent of his long-distance shots during his senior season on The Plains offered up the following comments after hearing the news:
Auburn hit too many 3’s 😴 that’s why they moving it back lol 😂😂

So what do you think, was the rule change made due to Auburn’s run to the Final Four?
