So to answer to the OP, begin the 10 second count when the player gains control of the ball in the backcourt.
That’s malpractice doc🙃. The count starts the moment the ball touches the BC.
Ps. I only answered the OP with a question because cross country “almost guaranteed” it. I wanted him to be right.😀
