Thrower-in A1 extends the ball over the boundary line. Before A1 releases the throw-in pass, B1 contacts A1 on her wrists. What is the result?
The official shall rule a Flagrant 1 Personal Foul on B1. (This type of personal foul counts toward player and team Foul Count.) Also, issue a delay for boundary line infraction so that any subsequent boundary line infraction is penalized.
Player A3 is passing the ball to A2 in the back court. While the pass is in flight, A5 and B5 commit a double personal foul inside the free-throw lane in the front court. The official shall:
Play is resumed at the point of interruption where A3 made the pass. A5 and B5 will be charged with off-setting common personal fouls (No Free-throw shots) and the shot clock will not be reset.
Team A is entitled to a throw-in under the alternating possession procedure. A1 is standing on the sideline and throws the ball to A3. The pass is kicked by B3 and the ball goes out of bounds on the endline. The officials shall:
Award Team A the ball at the spot nearest where the kicking violation occurred. The AP remains with Team A.
Can a thrower-in commit a traveling violation?
Since there is NO PIVOT FOOT on the thrower-in, there cannot be a travel.
On a jump ball, A1 commits a jump ball violation by catching the ball. What is the procedure an official uses to establish the AP arrow?
Once the ball is at the disposal of a player entitled for a throw-in on Team B, the AP arrow will be set to Team A to establish the AP procedure.
