Rule 10: Violations and Penalty - Jump Ball

image (1).jpg


Section V—Jump Ball

b. During a jump ball, a personal foul committed prior to either team obtaining possession, shall be ruled a “loose ball” foul. If the violation or foul occurs prior to the ball being legally tapped, neither the game clock or shot clock shall be started.

I've seen games in which officials omit this call, because of the inability to understand how to administer this penalty. Or even worst, we just plain missed it as a crew.

This is the only time you will find a loose ball foul when the clock has not started is at this point in the game.

This is the start of the game. This sets the preliminary tone for how the game will be played. Let's make sure it's administered properly according to the rules. And if the table errors, make an effort and correct the error.


Crew chief stuff!!
