High School Resumption Of Play ...

SC Official's recent thread was mostly about college rules and I didn't want to muck up his thread with a high school question so here's my separate thread.

After reading SC Official's thread, I decided to do some deep "dumpster diving" into the rulebook and casebook to get my mind clear regarding high school resumption of play procedures because I haven't given it much thought lately.

Regarding free throws, it is my belief that there are two different ways to address the situation of a player (shooter) not making one's self available for a free throw (in the semicircle).

If the free throw is after a timeout or intermission, we use the resumption of play procedure (ball on the floor, yada, yada, yada ...).

But if the free throw isn't after a timeout or intermission, and the player (shooter) does not make one's self available for a free throw, it's an immediate delay of game player technical foul (no (ball on the floor, no yada, yada, yada ...).

Now let's move on to a player not making one's self available for a throwin.

If the throwin is after a timeout or intermission, we use the resumption of play procedure (ball on the floor, yada, yada, yada ...).

If the delayed throwin is not after a timeout or intermission, do we still use the resumption of play procedure (ball on the floor, yada, yada, yada ...)?

4-38: The resumption-of-play procedure is used to prevent delay in putting the ball in play when a throw-in team does not make a thrower available or following a time-out or intermission (unless either team is not on the court to start the second half) as in 7-5-1 and 8-1-2. The procedure results in a violation instead of a technical foul for initial delay in specific situations.
