Basket Interference?

A friend had this happen in a game.

A10 goes to dunk the ball. B9 makes contact with him in the air and U2 blows for a foul.

A10 has B9 under him and grabs the ring for safety. Ball goes hit the back rim goes up 10 feet and starts to come down. A10 continues to hold onto the rim as B9 is under him on the ground. Ball goes through the net not touching anything including A10 hands still holding onto the rim. What are the chances. Crew counts the basket.

Common sense says they got it right. I am looking through the book and cant find anything to dispute their ruling.

Did they get this one right?

A player cannot touch the ball, ring, or net while the ball is on the ring or within the basket. A player cannot touch the ball if it is in the imaginary cylinder above the ring. These are examples of basket interference. It is legal to touch the ring or the net if the ball is above the ring and not touching the ring, even if the ball is in the imaginary cylinder above the ring. It is legal to hang on the ring if a player is avoiding an injury to himself or herself or another player.

BigT, does this case provide any guidance?

9.11.4 SITUATION:

Defender B4 attempts to stop an apparent lob pass. While B4 is airborne, A3 moves beneath B4. To avoid injury, B4 grasps the basket ring. While B4 grasps the ring, A1 shoots from about 12 feet away. Just after A1 releases the shot, B4 lets go of the ring and lands safely. The ring is still moving when (a) the ball hits the moving ring and bounces out; (b) the ball, despite the moving ring, enters and passes completely through the basket; or (c) the ring stops vibrating (returns to its normal position) and the ball bounces off the ring.

RULING: Since B4 grasped the ring to prevent injury, no technical foul is ruled. However, the basket interference rule applies. In (a), basket interference is ruled on B4 because the ball struck a still-vibrating ring. Award A1 two points. In (b), since the ball entered and passed completely through the basket, basket interference is not ruled. Play continues. In (c), because the ring returned to its original position before the ball struck the ring, basket interference is not called. Play continues. (4-6-4, 10-4-3)

The crew did not get this correct.
The player is allowed to grasp the ring to prevent injury, which is done in this case, so there is no technical foul. However, the player is not allowed to grasp the ring while the ball is in the basket. Since that is what happened when the ball came back down, this is offensive basket interference and the goal should be canceled.

Nice post.

Basket interference occurs when a player: Touches the ball or any part of the basket (including the net) while the ball is on or within either basket.

A player cannot touch the ball, ring, or net while the ball is on the ring or within the basket. A player cannot touch the ball if it is in the imaginary cylinder above the ring. These are examples of basket interference. It is legal to touch the ring or the net if the ball is above the ring and not touching the ring, even if the ball is in the imaginary cylinder above the ring. It is legal to hang on the ring if a player is avoiding an injury to himself or herself or another player.
