Team A has the throw-in, A1 throws the ball to A2 who is standing in the FC. A2 deflects the ball into the BC, as in never actually had control, just mis timed his catch. A2 then goes and collects the ball in the BC. I called a BC as A2 caused the ball to go into the BC and then got it.

My reasoning is this, A2 caused the ball to have FC status by touching the ball in the FC, then when he collected the ball in the BC it became a BC violation, even though he never had established "player control".

Please give me your thoughts.

fshrake,
Take a look at Mark Padgett's 4-point OB scenario (backcourt- Ralph Stubenthal)
In your case, you did not have the initial requirement of team control, because, although A2 had FC status, he was not holding or dribbling inbounds, and thus did not have Player control. Since he was the first to touch, there, also, was no team control, until he collected the ball in the backcourt.

mick is correct. Since team control was never established, you can't have a BC violation. Since team control is listed under the first of the four requirements, you need not go any further.

No team control, no BC violation.
