Travel It is LEGAL to fall to the floor with the ball, to slide on floor after gaining a loose ball or to gain control while lying on the floor. It is a VIOLATION to gain an advantage on the floor by rolling, or attempting to stand up while holding the ball. Block shot that stays in the hands of the shooter and returns to floor with ball –Travel ! – cannot be anything else

Shot Clock • Shot clock is stopped, but not reset, when the same team will retain possession of the ball for a throw in as a result of : • - ball out of bounds • - player on that team injured • - jump ball; AP. • - double foul • - cancellation of equal penalties
Back Court • Basic principles: • Once team establishes team control in the front court-- • Offensive team must be the last to touch the ball in the front court. • Offensive team must be the first to touch the ball in the backcourt- this is a violation ! • Center line is in back court.
Back Court • Ball is not in front court until ball and both feet are touching the front court (any part of front court)- ball and both feet do not have to be completely in front court Player straddling may now dribble in any direction or pass to team mate in back court or a team mate straddling
Back Court • If a backcourt violation is called, the ball is put in play closest to the spot where the ball was last touched by the offense player. • Cannot throw the ball from the front court to the backcourt from out of bounds. • Ball goes into backcourt when it touches the backcourt OR touches a player or an official who has part of his/her body in contact with the backcourt.
Backcourt Violation • Defensive player who makes a great play by intercepting a pass in the air, leaving from his front court and landing in his back court or straddling the line- this is now a legal play because this player established a new team control in the back court !- this would also apply to the same situation on the jump ball- this player may now dribble or pass in any direction
