Player laying on his/her back (with ball) next to the oob line. Pony tail swipes the floor touching the oob line. I guess violation?

Out of bounds.

Yep. The hair is as much part of the player as anything else.

Let's Go to The Videotape ...

2005-06 NFHS Basketball Rules Interpretations

SITUATION 9: A1 recovers a loose ball on the playing court near the sideline, with his/her body entirely in bounds. However, A1's head is hovering out of bounds and his/her hair (which is in a long ponytail) is touching the floor, out of bounds. RULING: A1 is called for the out-of-bounds violation. (7-1-1; 7-1-2; 9-3-1)

What about a loose shoelace? A piece of athletic tape that has come unraveled?

Would anyone consider this different than the hair situation? This could apply not just for OOB, but potential violations -- e.g. a player in a marked lane space has an untied shoelace outside of the marked lane spaces. How would people handle these, assuming that it wasn't caught and corrected during a dead ball.

With video being used at the higher levels, its only a matter of time until something like this has to be ruled on.

Whether or not it gets caught in real time is a separate issue.
