The NCAA has a different interpretation because they also have different considerations like the shot clock and reset situations that the NF does not have across the board at this time.

I don't like that interpretation for one reason. The division line is in the backcourt of the team getting the ball. That should, logically, make the throwin in the backcourt (at the division line) of the team getting the ball. But, of course, you have to go by the NFHS's interpretation regardless of whether it is logical or not.
