I should also add that this game was played at a neutral site which was hosting six games that day. Neither team participating in this contest was at its home gym.

Additionally, the scorer’s table at this site is about twenty rows up in the stands, so it is an unusual setup.

I have no problem with partners letting me know the time-out count, especially in situations where a team is out of full/60-second time-outs or out of 30-second time-outs.

I like this too. So cool when I don't have to ask the guy who has been a jackass for 34 minutes what kind of TO he wants.

Sometimes partners will tell me at the end of the game: "White has three timeouts left." Congratulations, I could not care less. I normally give a sarcastic thumbs up when this happens.
Well, many times the tables will tell us what they have. I just say "OK" and move on. I just think always telling the bench causes problems like this.

I never said "you have no timeouts or 1 timeout"

I always said

"the scorer has informed me that you are out of timeouts."

they can verify and i have made it clear im the middle man.

Had it happen to me in a varsity game 6 or 7 years ago. Table informed me that Coach A had one 30 sec time out left. I informed the assitant coach that they had one timeout left. 5 or 6 min later Coach A calls time and the table informs me they have no timeouts left. After glaring at the home book person I inform all we have a Technical foul. I am the bad guy now. For years I was always informing coaches how many time outs they had left. This will never happen to me again. When the table informs me they have 2 left etc I tell them to tell me when they have none. Keeping track of timeouts is the tables job and all those assistants on the bench. Our job is to inform the coach when he has NO timeouts left (I always check the book when this happens).

I try, with moderate success, to track it myself -- just as a double check.

This year -- I've found where the scorer gave the TO to the wrong team, and three times where the scorer was using the wrong number of TOs available (e.g., the NCAAM rule in a NCAAW game).

And, to be honest, I've had it wrong, once, too.

Don't learn this one the hard way. Your job is to tell the head coach. Even if you wait until the timeout has concluded -- because you were given the information late, perhaps -- make sure that's who you tell. Telling anyone else is irrelevant.

For the record...on this play, if my partner tells the coach he has a TO remaining..(which he shouldn’t have done) I will say no TO and play on. Yes, teams should have their own scorer/confirm etc. Hiwever, Rules put us in charge and even tell us to notify HC when they have 0 left. That didn’t happen here.
