Imagine a world where they banned “taking charges”

During the NCAA championship game, an idea came to me and it took over my thoughts about basketball over the ensuing couple of days. With all the talk of zone defense in the college game, I was left thinking about just how silly it is to reward defensive players for “taking” charges. I know it’s
