I make this claim because B1 s not allowed to pass to any other B player in the backcourt while airborne in this situation without causing a backcourt violation.
I agree 100% with Camron's post. B1 does have FC status until the second foot lands, plus there is both player and team control. After landing the player then has backcourt status, but he is not penalized in this specific case because of the exception written into the NFHS rules in 9-9-3.
