Yep. The NCAA did not flatly introduce a uniform three point line to every team in one single season. Instead, they allowed about 40% of conferences to experiment with their own shot clock and three point rules first. As such, in the 82-83 season, there were some conferences (Big Sky) with a 22 foot three point line and others (ACC) with a line as close as 17'9''.
