Should This Free Throw Count? (Video)

In high school varsity basketball, should this free throw count?

Either way, can you please cite the rule? Thank you.

Yes. The ball didn't go over the backboard or hit a support or wire.

Rule 7-2

It was not counted. A ref blew the whistle after the ball bounced to the top of the backboard and no point was recorded.

NFHS 7-1-2a&b: The ball is out of bounds when it touches or is touched by... the supports or back of the backboard....(or)...when it passes over a rectangular backboard.

Maybe the official thought it hit the middle support wire?

The shot counts in HS and NCAA.

The ref bought into the same myth as 90% of the fans and 45% of the coaches.

Had to educate a coach on the rule the other night. Think he was the only one in the gym that didn't know...or at least the only one the vocalize his belief.

The front, top, sides, and bottom of the backboard are all in play. The ball cannot legally pass over a rectangular backboard from either direction. The back of a backboard is out of bounds, as well as the supporting structures.

Looks to me like it was blown b/c she stepped over the line long before the ball entered the hoop. It was still bouncin' around on top of the board when she steps over.

You realize what you just said is not even remotely true? As soon as the ball hits the rim the shooter can cross the line.

Doesn't it seem like the whistle came from an unseen Trail?

Neither the L or C (if there is, in fact, a T in this game) has any reaction that would indicate they blew the whistle or plan to wave this off.

T here would have the worst possible angle, is obviously very far away to be out of the frame and might be straightlined into thinking it hit a support.

Not good enough to wave it off, but just a possible explanation.

To me, looks like C was on top of it and had nothing.

maybe he thought it hit something in the back, the ball did kind of go back then forward. But it appears to be the wrong call.

This belongs to the T. Seems that he was way to deep, but I do believe it's the T's and not the C's.
