Tip of the Week – Legal Play or Backcourt Violation?

Posted on October 7, 2015 / Posted under Basketball

9/21/15 – Player A1 brings the ball into his frontcourt and into a defensive trap in the corner of the sideline and division line.  A1 picks up the ball and sends a bounce pass to his teammate standing with both feet in their frontcourt.  A1’s pass bounces once in the back court before A2 catches it.  Legal or violation?

Tip of the Week – Injury During Play

Posted on October 2, 2015 / Posted under Basketball

2015-09-14 – Have a player injured during play in a game? Be aware that you need to put the players’ safety at the highest priority. You may stop the clock and suspend play when the ball is dead, when the injured player’s team is in control, or when the opponents complete a play. By definition a play is completed if the team loses control, which includes attempting a shot. Also, if the opponents stop trying to score or advance the ball, stop the play. If it is necessary to protect an injured player, you may immediately stop the clock. (Rule 5.8.2 Note)
