Kamloops Basketball Officials Association Summary of FIBA 2014 Official Basketball Rule Changes that Impact BCBOA Officials Prepared by Paul Foster, Educator Last Updated: October 27, 2014
Time-outs A maximum of 2 time-outs may be granted to a team in the last 2 minutes of the 2nd half. Note: If the team has NOT used one of their 3 time-outs in the second half by the time of 2:00 on the game clock, they only get 2 time-outs. Before, they could use their 3 second half time-outs at any time before the game ended in regulation time. Of course, no time-outs can be carry forwarded to extra periods. That is unchanged.
Technical Foul Penalty If a technical foul is committed: The opponents shall be awarded 1 free throw (it was 2 free throws before) followed by: A throw-in at the centre line extended, opposite the scorer’s table. Note: If a technical foul is committed before the start of the game, after the 1 free throw, the game is started by a jump ball. A technical foul on a player, DOES count as a player foul and a team foul. A technical foul on a team bench personnel or head coach does NOT count as a player foul or a team foul.
Technical Foul - Disqualification A player shall be disqualified for the remainder of the game when he is charged with 2 (two) technical fouls (“T” Foul). It was 5 (five) T fouls before. Notes: Game Disqualification also applies to a player who is charged with 2 unsportsmanlike fouls (“U” Foul); and, to a head coach who is charged with 2 Coach technical fouls against him personally (“C” Fouls), 3 Bench technical fouls (“B” Fouls), or 1 “C” Foul and 2 “B” Fouls. This is a Game Disqualification and shall be inscribed into the scoresheet as a “GD”. Players or coaches disqualified must leave the team bench area and gymnasium. Typically to the change/locker room.
Jump Ball (Held Ball) In the 2014 FIBA Official Interpretation document, Article 12-6 (page 6) provides the following example… “А1 jumps with the ball and is legally blocked by B1. Both players then return to the playing court with both of them having one or both hands firmly on the ball.” Interpretation: A held ball shall be called. It was a Travelling before. Notes: If the defender (B1) lets go a split second before landing, it is considered a Travelling. This does not change. If the offensive player (A1) lets go, the defender should have the ball and it is a steal.
Warning Whistle This is a NEW procedure that involves ONLY an offensive team throwing a ball from ONLY the Front Court and ONLY on the Endline. FIBA STATES… “When a throw-in is taken on the endline in the frontcourt, an active official will blow the whistle before placing the ball at the player’s disposal for the throw-in.“ There was no warning whistle before. We just handed them the ball. This is designed to be a “heads up” whistle in a critical area. See Next Slide for Steps
Warning Whistle (Cont’d) STEPS FOR LEAD OFFICIAL 1)Designate the throw-in spot using the “Ass to Glass” concept (Backboard, next is Official, next is Player, next is sideline) 2)Point to the spot and let the player know 3)Wait to ensure thrower-in is at the right spot 4)Blow the whistle before placing the ball at the player’s disposal for the throw-in. i.Whistle to be Loud and Confident. 5)Wait a half second after blowing the whistle. Don’t rush. 6)Hand the ball to the player for throw-in REMEMBER: ENDLINE + FRONT COURT = WHISTLE
Warning Whistle (Cont’d) While the diagram shows a bounce pass, BCBOA would prefer we hand the ball to the player for a throw-in in when the ball is in the front court, especially for 2 Person Mechanics.
Warning Whistle (Cont’d) FYI ONLY STEPS FOR TRAIL OFFICAL At this time, to be used by CIS Officials only and is a 3 person mechanic … 1)Trail Official is to mirror to Lead with the Start the Clock Signal (Chop in) 2)No whistle 3)Hand Up with the Lead 4)Hand Down with the Lead
No Charge Semi-circle Rule FYI ONLY At this time, to be used by CIS Officials only… The no-charge semi-circle rule shall be applied when the defensive player has one foot or both feet in contact with the no-charge semi- circle area. The no-charge semi-circle lines are part of the no-charge semi-circle areas. Before, both feet had to be completely inside the semi-circle. NEW DIAGRAMS
Shot Clock Reset FYI ONLY CABO is NOT introducing the following change to the Shot Clock reset rule this year at any level. It will continue to be a full reset to 24 seconds. “After the ball has touched the ring of the opponents’ basket, the shot clock shall be reset to 14 seconds, if the team which regains control of the ball is the same team that was in control of the ball before the ball touched the ring.” Before, it was a full reset to 24 seconds once the ball touched the ring on a shot.
