Arrow late in the quarter

Last night, my partner had an inadvertent whistle with 1.7 seconds left in the third quarter. There was no team control (during a rebound), so we had to go to the arrow, which means a team had to go the length of the court in too short of a time, and the opposition gets the arrow for the start of the fourth quarter.

Granted, it's rare, but I've always hated to see a team get the arrow with so little time that the opportunity to score is basically lost. I've always wondered if there should be a rule that allows a team to defer their arrow to the opposition, letting that team get the next one.

I've thought the same thing -- either "defer" or just let the time expire and start the next quarter (with so limit on the time allowed, of course)

Just tell them they'll get 2 of the next 3.

This type of play makes one wish that the Rules would do away with the Alternating Possession Arrow. Just saying, !

You could always just commit a team control foul. Maybe a little risky to take one in your backcourt; I guess you’d have to decide how much the arrow mattered to you. I’d definitely consider this with 0.3 or less on the clock.

A coach would also have to know the rule to employ this strategy.

Hard cases make bad law. Is this a solution in search of a problem?

No team control so why not just line everyone up on FT line closest to where the ball was when you had the IW, and throw the ball off the backboard and let them play on from there. Start the clock when ball hits backboard. That seems the most fair.

If you are going to do that, why not just use a mechanic that is already in use instead of making up your own? Once upon a time, the semi circle above the FT line had a purpose unrelated to free throws...
