Quarter Throw-in Spot

Where is the 'exact' designation for the throw-in to start a new quarter?

That line that dissects the court in two.

And opposite the table.

7-5-6

Designated out-of-bounds spot throw-in at the division line opposite the scorer's and timer's table:

b. For an alternating-possession throw-in to start the second, third and fourth quarters, any player from the team with the possession arrow shall make the throw-in.

*I like position my throw-in player (A1) at a point that is one step into their frontcourt area from the division line. Also, I usually just hand the ball to the thrower-in and step away-- instead of bouncing it to them--due to the fact that I'd hate to see them fumble bumble a bounce pass which would cause me to have to stop and re-do the whole affair.

Why do you want them 1 step into the FC, for what purpose?

So you NEVER administer with a bounce on any throw-in?

I bounce wherever the manual allows us to. Definitely on a midcourt throw-in so I can get a few steps into the BC.

Same here.

I was just asking KansasRef if he ever does it ... because it sounds like he never does.

I'm kind of a stickler for the "exact" spot the OP refers to, even though "at the division line" isn't more accurately defined. I try to get the thrower to straddle the DL extended (evaluators pick up on little things like this). But......if they move a step or two one way or the other, I'm also not going to delay putting the ball in play. This is low on my totem pole of pet peeves.

Since the division line should be two inches wide and the designated spot is 3-feet in width, the thrower actually has 17 inches on each side of the division line.

No Totem Pole Reference Here

Got that.
What should rise to the level of pet peevish is when the all-too-casual official just allows the player to stand just anywhere over there (quite wide of the dimension over which the player must have "a foot on or over"), and in doing so takes the advantage of the relative location of the division line away from a pressing defense and an unsuspecting player who catches the throw-in and get him/herself trapped up against it.
It just isn't that hard to point to the "spot" and make the player at least start there.

If this had a "Like" button, I would not click on it.

I'm definitely old fashioned, having officiated for thirty-five years.

With rare exceptions, the only time that one will see me bounce the ball to an inbounding player is on a run-the-back-endline throwin.

If I believe that bouncing the ball to the inbounder will help me to better see an anticipated play, I will bounce it, but this will be few times, and far between.

I'm so used to doing it the old way that, as the lead, in a two person game, I will hesitate to bounce the ball to an inbounder on a sideline throwin below the free throw line extended.

I doubt that there is anyone on this Forum that bounces the ball less than me. I know that I'm in the minority, and I probably should be bouncing more, but it's hard to teach an old dog new tricks.
