3 - A team may not press if they are leading by 15 or more points.
 
4 - Add’l periods must be evenly distributed (e.g., no player may play 4 periods unless everyone plays at least 3)
5 - The ball-handler only may be double-teamed (no more), only within the 3-point line.
6 - All leagues will now allow each team 6 timeouts/game, 3 max each half.
