Rule Clarifications

Over the course of each season the Referee in Chief will post information in this section in regards to rule clarifications.  Please refer back to this section regularly.

1) In the final 2 minutes of a game is the ball advanced from the backcourt to the frontcourt if either team call a timeout or only if the team in possession of the ball calls a timeout?

The defending team's timeout would have no impact on the positioning of the ball to the front court. They could call a time out but the ball would remain at the point of the violation or foul. Only when a team is allowed the ball in its back court and then calls the timeout is it moved to the throw-in line in its front court. Thus only the white team timeout would move the ball forward to the throw-in line in the front court.

The FIBA rules application are as follows:

Throw-ins: 17.2.4 When the game clock shows 2:00 minutes or less of the fourth period and of each extra period, following a time-out taken by the team that is entitled to possession of the ball from its backcourt, the subsequent throw-in shall be administered at the throw-in line opposite the scorer's table in the team's frontcourt.

Timeouts: 18.2.8 A time-out shall not be permitted to the scoring team when the game clock shows 2:00 minutes or less of the fourth period and of each extra period and, following a successful field goal unless an official has stopped the game.
