Season headlines

Major rule changes

Beginning in 2009-10, the following rules changes were implemented:

  • The NCAA reduced the amount of time that college underclassmen can test the waters for the NBA Draft and still retain their college eligibility. As of this season, players have until early May (rather than mid-June) to decide to return.[23]
  • Secondary defenders must now establish their position outside of the zone between the backboard and the front of the rim to draw a charge.[24]
  • If a player is injured and unable to shoot his own foul shots, the replacement shooter must be chosen from the players currently on the court.[24]
  • Instant replay may now be used to determine flagrant fouls.[24]

Conference winners and tournaments

Thirty athletic conferences each end their regular seasons with a single-elimination tournament. The teams in each conference that win their regular season title are given the number one seed in each tournament. The winners of these tournaments receive automatic invitations to the 2010 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament. The Ivy League does not have a conference tournament, instead giving their automatic invitation to their regular-season champion. The Great West Conference began play in 2009-10 and does not receive an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.

Statistical leaders

Postseason tournaments

NCAA Tournament

The NCAA Tournament tipped off on March 16, 2010, with the opening round game in Dayton, Ohio, and concluded on April 5 at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Of the 65 teams that were invited to participate, 31 were automatic bids while 34 were at-large bids. The 34 at-large teams came from 11 conferences, with the Big East receiving the most bids - eight. The tournament was marked by a number of significant upsets. The biggest saw Northern Iowa knock off #1 overall seed Kansas 69-67 on an Ali Farokhmanesh three-pointer in the waning seconds. Another surprise was Ivy League champion Cornell making a surprise run to the Sweet 16 - becoming the first Ivy school to win an NCAA tournament game since 1998. Duke made a big run in the NCAA tournament, defeating Arkansas Pine-Bluff (73-44), California (68-53), Purdue (70-57), and Baylor (78-72) in their region. In the semifinals, the Blue Devils routed West Virginia 78-57 to make their 10th championship game appearance. In the end, Duke defeated surprise finalist Butler 61-59, after a three-point attempt by the Bulldogs' Gordon Hayward barely missed at the buzzer. Duke claimed its fourth National title as Blue Devil forward Kyle Singler was named Most Outstanding Player[69]

National Invitation Tournament

After the NCAA Tournament field was announced, the National Invitation Tournament invited 32 teams to participate. There was much speculation during the NIT that the NCAA Tournament would expand to 96 teams and that 2010 could be the last NIT after 73 years. (Ultimately, the NCAA decided to expand only to 68 teams, keeping the NIT intact for the near future.) Dayton defeated defending National Champion North Carolina 79-68 in the Final on April 1. The Flyers' Chris Johnson was named tournament Most Outstanding Player.
