1 Basketball Exam Part I NOTE: In the exam situations, A refers to offensive team and B refers to their opponents, the defensive team. A1 and B1 are players of Team A and Team B. Unless otherwise stated: a single foul or free throw exists; all equipment, situations and acts are legal; a tap is toward the tapper s basket; and it is a two-point field goal. No errors or mistakes are involved unless noted. 1. An alternating-possession throw-in always follows opponents committing simultaneous basket interference violations. 2. Following the initial jump ball, if A2 muffs the tapped ball and it goes out of bounds, the alternating procedure starts when the ball is placed at the disposal of the Team B thrower. 3. If tapper A1 catches the referee's toss during the opening jump ball, Team B gains the first possession and the arrow is set toward A's basket. 4. A flagrant foul may be either personal or technical. 5. If Team A legally controls the game-starting jump ball, the arrow will be set toward Team B's basket. 6. It is alternating possession if B1 disconcerts and free thrower A1 violates. 7. With the clock running, the head coach may go, without penalty, to the scorer's table to request a time-out regarding a correctable error. 8. The head coach may use electronic voice communication equipment to communicate with players. 9. The head coach is responsible for the conduct of all bench personnel.

2 10. The head coach is assessed one direct technical foul for each player discovered in the game wearing an illegal uniform. 11. The head coach is assessed an indirect technical foul when a disqualified player is removed and is subsequently discovered participating in the game. 12. Correctable errors are limited to five specific situations, all involving scoring issues, when a rule is inadvertently set aside. 13. If an error is corrected, in some cases, play shall continue from the normal game action resulting from the correction. 14. If the error is made while the clock is running and the ball dead, it must be recognized by an official before the second live ball following the error in order to be corrected. 15. A red light behind each backboard or an LED light on each backboard is permitted to signal that time has expired for a quarter or extra period. 16. A team's jersey may have a single visible manufacturer's logo/trademark/reference. 17. A visible display shall be located at the scorer's table to indicate team possession for the alternating-possession procedure. 18. Contrasting colored floor areas may be used instead of the 2-inch boundary lines. 19. "Point of interruption" is a method of resuming play after a double personal or double technical foul.

3 20. A ball which touches a player is the same as the ball touching the floor at that player's location. 21. A closely-guarded count continues when a defensive switch occurs, provided the 6-foot distance is maintained. 22. A common foul is a personal foul that is not flagrant, intentional or committed against a player trying or tapping for a field goal, or part of a double, simultaneous or multiple foul. 23. A designated throw-in spot is 3 feet wide with no depth limitation. 24. A flagrant foul may be either personal or technical. 25. A foul against an airborne shooter is a foul in the act of shooting even though the ball is already in flight. 26. A multiple foul is a situation in which two or more opponents commit personal fouls against each other at approximately the same time. 27. A player may legally use arms and hands or hips to move the screener aside in order to maintain guarding position on an opponent with the ball. 28. A player may use his or her forearm and/or hand to prevent an opponent from attacking the ball during a dribble. 29. A team may be issued a delay-of-game warning following a time-out for water on the floor.

4 30. A try for a field goal ends if the thrown ball touches any player. 31. After B1 obtains a legal guarding position, he or she is not required to have either or both feet on the playing court or continue facing the opponent to maintain legal position. 32. An intentional foul is not based on the severity of the act. 33. Charging is legal action which prevents an opponent from reaching a desired position. 34. The length of the intermission between each extra period is two minutes. 35. A throw-in under the alternating-possession procedure shall start each extra period. 36. Once the ball becomes live in an extra period, the extra period will be played even though a correction in score is made. 37. The length of each extra period in a varsity contest is four minutes. 38. A team-control foul can also be intentional or flagrant. 39. All common fouls in the last two minutes of the game are automatically intentional. 40. An intentional foul can only occur during a live ball.

5 41. An unsporting foul consists of unfair, unethical or dishonorable conduct. 42. Contact after the ball has become dead is incidental, unless it is ruled intentional or flagrant, or committed by or on an airborne shooter. 43. If a ball handler/dribbler has his/her back to the basket outside the lane area and an opponent places an arm bar on the player, it is not a foul. 44. The head coach may enter the court in the situation where a fight may break out or has broken out to prevent the situation from escalating. 45. A free throw begins when the free thrower receives the ball from the official and it ends when the ball is clearly in flight. 46. A player in a marked lane space shall position one foot near the outer edge of the free-throw lane line. 47. A substitute for the offended team may enter the game and attempt the second free throw awarded for a technical foul. 48. A substitute free throw is awarded if there are simultaneous violations by opponents and the try is unsuccessful. 49. A substitute throw is awarded if B1 violates and A1's attempt is unsuccessful. 50. A violation has occurred when B1, in a marked space, loses his/her balance and touches inside the lane with both hands prior to A1's release of a free-throw attempt.

6 51. Any player, other than the free thrower, who does not occupy a marked lane space must be behind the free-throw line extended and behind the three-point line. 52. During a final free-throw attempt by A1, B2 commits basket interference. The goal will count and Team B will receive the ball out of bounds for a throw-in. 53. Following a time-out or intermission, A1's free throw shall be administered even though Team B is not occupying each of the lane spaces adjacent to the end line. 54. Following a time-out, if free thrower, A1, is not in the free-throw semicircle when the administering official is ready, a technical foul for delay is charged to A A ball that is in contact with two players is in the backcourt if either player is touching the backcourt. 56. A ball which is in flight retains the same status it had when last in contact with a player or the court. 57. If A1 ends the dribble and holds the ball with one foot touching in A's frontcourt and the other on the division line, the ball is in the frontcourt. 58. The ball is in A's backcourt when A1 holds the ball straddling the division line and then pivots on the foot which is in A's frontcourt. 59. A player is entitled to a standing (vertical) position, even to the extent of holding the arms above the shoulders. 60. A player who extends an arm, shoulder, hip or leg into the path of an opponent is not considered to have had a legal position if contact occurs.

7 61. If the opponent with the ball is airborne, the guard may obtain legal position in the opponent's landing spot after the opponent is airborne. 62. The guard is responsible for contact if the dribbler has been able to get his or her head and shoulders past the guard's torso. 63. The defender placing a hand on a ball handler is not an advantage to the defender and should be considered incidental contact. 64. A jumper is required to be in his/her proper half of the center restraining circle during a jump ball, but is not required to face his/her own basket. 65. After the ball is tossed but before it is tapped, nonjumpers may have a foot break the plane of the restraining circle. 66. During a jump ball, the ball becomes live when it is tapped. 67. It is a violation if jumper A1 catches the tapped ball before it has touched the floor. 68. Nonjumpers may change positions around the restraining circle when the official is ready to make the toss. 69. If a throw-in is to follow, the ball becomes dead when a free throw ends whether it is made or missed. 70. The ball becomes dead and it is a technical foul when B1 excessively swings his/her elbows.

8 71. The ball becomes dead immediately if a tap by A1 is in flight toward A's basket when time expires. 72. The ball becomes dead immediately when airborne shooter A1 commits a player-control foul. 73. The ball becomes dead on a free throw when the try hits the floor. 74. A single timer and a single scorer may be used if they are trained personnel acceptable to the referee. 75. An official shall notify the coach, request the timer to begin the replacement interval, and then notify the player of his/her disqualification. 76. An official shall silently and visibly count seconds while administering the rules for a throw-in, free throw, backcourt, closely guarded and three seconds. 77. Any official has the authority to designate the official timer and scorer. 78. If a mistake has been made and an umpire is still on the floor at the end of the game, he/she may call the referee back to make the correction. 79. A player is out of bounds when he/she touches the floor, or any object other than a player, on or outside a boundary. 80. While the ball is being held by A1 near the endline, B1 knocks the ball from A1's hands causing it to go out-of-bounds. Ball is awarded to A1 for a throw in.

9 81. All edges of a rectangular backboard are out of bounds. 82. If A1 jumps from out of bounds, A1 is considered inbounds while airborne. 83. A1 causes the ball to go out-of-bounds when a pass by A1 touches B1 before touching an official and then going out-ofbounds. 84. A player-control foul is counted toward reaching the team bonus. 85. A player is disqualified if he or she has been charged with one technical foul and four personal fouls. 86. A technical foul for unsporting bench conduct by a team member carries a penalty of two free throw plus the ball for a division line throw-in and is charged to the offender and also indirectly to the head coach. 87. A technical foul is called if a player leaves the court for an unauthorized reason. 88. After the specified time limit, it is one technical foul if the coach of Team A makes two unauthorized changes in the starting lineup. 89. If a player is disqualified for a flagrant technical foul, the offender is ejected and sent away from the bench area. 90. Fifteen seconds before the expiration of a 60-second time-out, the timer shall sound a warning signal.

10 91. If the timer's signal fails to sound, the timer may go onto the court to immediately notify the referee. 92. The official scorebook shall remain at the scorer's table throughout the game. 93. The scorer shall signal for a substitution if the substitute has reported, is ready and is entitled to enter provided the ball is dead and the clock is stopped. 94. If a game is forfeited to the team ahead in the score, the score shall be recorded as 2-0 in that team's favor. 95. If A1 scores a field goal in B's basket, it is credited to the Team B player closest to the basket. 96. If the officials, by mistake, permit the teams to go the wrong direction, when discovered all points scored shall count as if each team had gone the proper direction. 97. When screening a moving opponent, the screener must allow the opponent time and distance to avoid contact. 98. When a player screens in front of or at the side of a stationary opponent, the screener must allow the opponent one normal step toward the screener without contact. 99. A player need only have the front of the team jersey tucked in to be eligible to participate By state association adoption, a commemorative/memorial number patch may be worn on the uniform jersey provided it is above the neckline or in the side insert.
