L signaling a good 3

Had a partner tonight argue that in two man, the L should signal a good 3.

I've always been taught that the only time the L should signal a good 3 is if the trail doesn't pick up the 3 point attempt signal from the L and doesn't signal the good 3.

Does anyone have the L always signaling a good 3 from his primary?

You always signal a good 3 if it's your primary in 2-man. This includes L.

Typically if I'm L and the T also marks a 3-point attempt (near intersection of PCAs), I will drop my arm and watch rebounding.

L does not mirror T's touchdown from T's primary, however. Some old timers in my state still do that and it annoys me.

All this is assuming your state follows the NFHS mechanics for 3-pointers.

This is what I've always done, and I pregame this every night too.

Who cares. If that's the worst I can expect from my partner then I think it will be a well officiated game.

You stated in your original post that you didn't think L is supposed to signal touchdown on a good 3 in 2-man.

That is not correct for NFHS mechanics, your partner was right.

Not what I stated. I wrote what I had been taught.

And what you've been taught is not correct under NFHS mechanics.

Have you read and/or do you follow the NFHS mechanics manual sir?

He's in IL. We use our own mechanics. In this instance (and ion most instances), though, they are the same.

Signal the attempt and the success if it's in your primary. T mirrors L on the success (not on the attempt) when the shot is from L's primary. L does NOT mirror T.

It means someone doesn't now the proper mechanics under which they operate nor where to look them up.

I don't expect my partners to know everything, but they should know where to look.

I don't think this is about where they are looking. The only mention is scoring a made 3 pointer from the L's primary, which the L and T should mirror the signal.

Where to look = resources, not on the court.
