Rule 7: Shot Clock - Change of Possession?

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive



Section II—Starting and Stopping of Shot Clock

 e. A team is considered in possession of the ball when holding, passing or dribbling.  The team is considered in possession of the ball even though the ball has been batted away but the opponent has not gained possession.


This is especially true after a score.  The team inbounds the ball in the back court.  As the team advances in to the front court, the ball is tipped away by the defender in the back court.  That shot clock is still an active running shot clock until the possession of the ball has changed. 

Make sure your table crew is aware of when to reset the shot clock.  This is missed often by the table.

Crew Chief stuff!!


Rule 8: Out of Bounds and Throw In - Player

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive



Section I—Player

The player is out-of-bounds when he touches the floor or any object on or outside a boundary. For the location of a player in the air, his position is that from which he last touched the floor. The last part of the foot/feet which is in contact with the floor on his last step prior to jumping over the midcourt line or three-point line shall determine his location.


Is it a 2 or 3 point shot attempt if a shooter starts his/her shot behind the 3 point line, and lands by the free throw lane?

Rule 6: Putting Ball in Play - Live/Dead Ball - Jump Balls

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive



Section V—Jump Balls in Center Circle

a. The ball shall be put into play in the center circle by a jump ball between any two opponents:

(1) At the start of the game

(2) At the start of each overtime period

(3) A double free-throw violation

(4) Double foul during a loose ball

(5) The ball becomes dead when neither team is in control and no field goal infraction is involved

(6) The ball comes to rest on the basket flange or becomes lodged between the basket ring and the backboard

(7) A double foul occurs as a result of a difference in opinion between officials

(8) A suspension of play occurs during a loose ball

(9) A fighting foul occurs during a loose ball

(10) The officials are in doubt as to which team last touched the ball before going out of bounds and the players cannot be identified.

b. In all cases above, the jump ball shall be between any two opponents in the game at that time. If injury, ejection, or disqualification makes it necessary for any player to be replaced, his substitute may not participate in the jump ball.



This is a good rule to understand for jump ball situations that occur at the center circle.  Otherwise, all other jump balls will take place at the nearest circle.

Crew Chief stuff!!
