Like Christopher Columbus ...

I'm in dangerous, uncharted, shark infested, waters here. I don't know NCAA rules, and don't work NCAA games (I've worked exactly one community college game in almost four decades). Other than some of our local teams, I'm not a big NCAA fan. For discussion purposes, I want to keep this separate from any NFHS discussion.

Does this interpretation tell us that the player simply comes to a jump stop, with no foot movements, throws the ball, goes airborne, and before landing catches the ball and dunks? Because (with my limited college rule knowledge) that sounds perfectly legal to me.

Now, what about if the player touches the floor with his pivot foot between the throw and the catch, moving his pivot foot multiple times between the throw and the catch?

Is that in this caseplay? Where does it say that?

What college rule "resets the pivot foot limits" (like a pass, or a try) after a throw off the backboard?

And yes, I probably deserve a, "Don't quit your high school schedule" comment.

All I care about is that there are case plays that make the play legal in both high school and college basketball.
