Travel?

Player A jumps to catch a pass and secures the ball while in the air and subsequently falls to the ground while in possession of the basketball. This was in my PCA. I did not blow it dead due to the fact that the player had not secured control with a foot on the ground. My partner blows it dead and calls a travel. Is this actually a travel?

NFHS 4-44-5-A: A player holding the ball: May not touch the floor with a knee or any other part of the body
other than hand or foot.

NFHS 4.44.5 SITUATION A: Is it traveling if A1 falls to the floor: (a) while holding the ball; or (b) after being airborne to catch a pass or control a rebound? RULING: Yes in both (a) and (b).
