Travel call – the toughest call in the game. Travel Rule 4-43 & 9-4
MEASURABLE OUTCOME Officials will –determine how a pivot is established. –Identify what a player can do with the pivot. –Identify features of a jump stop. –Adjudicate special travel situations.
Definition: excessive movement of the foot or feet while holding the ball. The player must have control of the ball.
What would Forest say? “You cain’t run with somethin’ ya ain’t got.”
Pivot: when a player who is holding the ball steps once, or more than once, in any direction with the same foot while the other foot, called the pivot foot, is kept at its point of contact with the floor.
Establishing a pivot foot Both feet on the floor: may use either foot, the one foot not lifted becomes the pivot.
One foot on the floor: that foot is the pivot foot. *The player may jump off this foot and land on two simultaneously.
In the air, –land on both simultaneously: pivot on either one. –land on one: first to touch is the pivot foot. * *The player may jump off this foot and land on two simultaneously.
What can I do after I have a pivot foot? The pivot foot may be lifted to pass or shoot. It cannot come back down until the ball is released. To dribble, the ball must be released before the pivot foot is lifted. –Playground rocker move
After a “jump stop”… One or both may be lifted to pass or shoot. Neither may come back down. Neither may be lifted to dribble.
A player holding the ball may not touch the floor with any body part other than a hand or foot. –Take a knee = violation –Take an elbow = violation –Take a fall = violation
ON THE FLOOR… After gaining possession on the floor, a player may not attempt to get up or roll over. A player may pass, dribble, or shoot, and while on their back, a player may sit up. While a player may fall or get up while dribbling (Harlem Globetrotters)… … a player may not put the ball on the floor, get up, and be the first to touch the ball.
A player may dive for a loose ball, gain possession, and legally slide. He/she may roll over while sliding.
Rally Share What can a player do if they dive or retrieve a loose ball on the floor?
