Intentional Foul (4-19-3d) An INTENTIONAL FOUL includes excessive contact with an opponent while the ball is live or until an airborne shooter returns to the floor.
Player Occupying a Marked Lane Space (9-1-3g) A player occupying a marked lane space may not have either foot beyond the vertical plane of the outside edge of any lane boundary, or beyond the vertical plane of any edge of the space (2 inches by 36 inches) designated by a lane-space mark.
Player Occupying a Marked Lane Space (9-1-3g) A player shall position one foot near the outer edge of the free-throw lane line. The other foot may be positioned anywhere within the designated 36- inch lane space until the ball has been released.
Players in Lane Spaces (9-1-3g) On a free throw, players in the lane spaces are allowed to enter the lane upon the release of the ball by the free thrower. All other players behind the free throw line extended and the three point line, including the free thrower, are required to wait until the free throw touches the ring or backboard or the free throw has ended before entering the lane.
Contact (10-12) New The following acts constitute a foul when committed against a ball handler/dribbler: Placing two hands (front/back of hand) on the player Placing an extended arm bar (forearm that is away from the body) on the dribbler Placing and keeping a hand on the dribbler Contacting the player more than once with the same hand or alternating hands.

Announcer Responsibilities The announcer shall be prohibited from making an announcement: while the clock is running and while the clock is stopped and the ball is live…such as during a free throw, a throw in, etc. Doing so could potentially affect communication between coaches and players or be disconcerting.
Announcer Responsibilities The announcer shall be prohibited from interrupting the game through the use of the microphone unless there is an emergency. Announcements or comments shall be made during those times when there is a stoppage of the clock and the ball is not live, such as time outs, between quarters, pre-game, half time and post game.
Announcer Responsibilities The announcer is allowed to announce basic information that does not potentially affect the play in general, the players, the coaches, or the officials. The announcer’s information is not official information and could be misinformation shared with all. Appropriate training of announcers by school personnel and proper pre-game instructions by the referee are necessary.
May be Announced - Examples: Player who scored Player charged with foul Player attempting free throw Team granted a time out Length of time out: 30 seconds or 60 seconds Player entering game Team Rosters
Shall not be Announced – Examples: Number of points player scored Number of fouls on player Number of team fouls Number of team time outs or number remaining Time remaining in the quarter/game Type of foul or violation Emphatic 2 or 3 point goal
Announcer Responsibilities The announcer’s role does not include “cheering the home team on” or otherwise inciting the crowd. Doing so is common at other levels of athletic events. But high school athletics is different because sports are educationally based. In a very real sense, the public address announcer at a high school event is a “Champion of Character”.
Announcer Responsibilities He/she can influence the atmosphere of the contest by what is said and how it is said. The announcer who performs professionally promotes good sportsmanship by what he/she says and how he/she acts upon saying it.
Correctable Error: Officials may correct an error if a rule is inadvertently set aside and results in: Failure to award a merited free throw. Awarding an unmerited free throw. Permitting a wrong player to attempt a free throw. Attempting a free throw at the wrong basket. Erroneously counting or cancelling a score.
Frontcourt and Backcourt Ball Status: The status of the ball when considering whether it is in the frontcourt or backcourt is determined by the location of the object that the ball last touched inbounds as long as there is team control inbounds, be it a player, official or the playing court.
Frontcourt and Backcourt Status The location of a player is determined by where the player is touching the floor or, in the case of the airborne player, where the player was last in contact with the floor.
Ball Status When an airborne player gains possession of the ball during a throw in or a jump ball, the player is considered to have no status as related to frontcourt or backcourt if he/she (and only that player) returns to the floor possessing the ball. The location where he/she lands will determine the location of the player and the ball.
Frontcourt and Backcourt Ball Status: The ball is considered to remain in the backcourt while a player is dribbling the ball until both feet of that player and the ball have been in contact with the frontcourt.
Frontcourt and Backcourt Ball Status: It is recommended to review case plays and 9-9-1, Situations A- E, in the Case Book. These cases present situations that assist in explaining the status of the ball and player when considering backcourt violations.
Team Control Status During Throw in; Team Control Status Inbounds Since a rule change, team control exists during a throw in when the thrower in has the ball at her/his disposal. The change was made ONLY to eliminate the penalty of administering free throw(s) when a teammate of the thrower in commits a common foul during the throw in
Team Conrol Status Inbounds The change made the penalty consistent with the penalty for other team control fouls. The penalty now is the awarding of a throw in to the opposing team at the spot out-of-bounds nearest to where the foul occurred.
Team Control Status During Throw in; Team Control Status Inbounds NOTE: Team control during a throw in is not intended to be equated to player control status inbounds which creates team control status inbounds. During the throw in, 10-seconds, 3-seconds, frontcourt status, backcourt status, closely guarded, etc. are not factors as there has yet to be player control/team control status obtained inbounds.
