Many Moons Ago ...

What may be confusing some, is that many years ago, I'm going to guess more than twenty years go, a tap, and a try, were not considered the same by the NFHS. In some cases, a player could tap the ball toward the basket, get fouled in the act of tapping, and either not get fouls shots, getting the ball at the closest designated spot, or, if in the bonus, getting a one and one.

I'm sure one of our veteran Forum posters can tell us when this change was made.

I've always been pleased with this change. It makes it a lot easier to treat the tap the same as a try, except, of course, when there's 0.3 or less seconds on the clock.
