AP arrow. Flip it or not?

Seems like this should be evident, but when diving into the rule book, I became more confused.

A gets the ball on an AP throw in. A then throws a cross-court pass that bounces once on the court and goes out of bounds opposite the throw in. Obviously we give B the ball at the original throw-in spot, but do we flip arrow to B?

Did the throw in end?

4-42-5b says the throw in ends when "the ball touches or is touched by another player out of bounds."

Does that mean the throw in ends then the ball touches out of bounds?

It was a throw-in violation, so A loses the arrow.

Compare what is stated above with 6-4-5. The violation results in loss of the ball and the AP arrow. Right?

You are correct that the throw-in didn't end. But, is that the only time the arrow changes?

You need to read all of 4-42-5 to understand when the throw in ends. Just looking at one tiny piece doesn't tell you enough.

This section offers three specific ways the throw-in can end.
a. when it touches a player inbounds
b. when it touches a player out of bounds
c. when there is a throw-in violation

So...run down the check list on your play. Did it touch a player (in bounds or out of bounds?) Was there a throw-in violation? (You need to check 9-2 for that).

I did check 9-2 and I believe I accidentally skipped the portion of 9-2-2 that says "The ball shall be passed so that...it is touched by another player on the court before going out of bounds untouched"

Thanks for the help. Just one of those things where you're 99% sure you flip it and then after it happens and make what you think is an easy call, you say to yourself 2 minutes later, "That's right...right?"

I like seeing somebody that works the table not only getting in the book that much, but asking questions like that.

Thanks
