Okay had a varsity game Saturday afternoon. End of second quarter A1 goes for last second shot. B1 fouls airborne shooter as time expires and horn sounds. A1 gets his two shots with the lane cleared. Here is where it gets sticky. Ball is given to A1 for the first of two free throws. While A1 has the ball team B gets up and proceeds to leave the gym. In doing so they are cutting across the corner of the court on which A1 is attempting his shot. The hallway which their locker room is in is just to the left of the lane. Is there anything that could have been called and what rules would back that up.

Let it go. Don't look for trouble. Assuming they are just walking off the court.

But the problem comes in that they could actually be doing it in an attempt to disconcert the free thrower. We did let it go and the free throw was missed. Just looking for input as to what could have been done.

Sure. Every team member that is on the corner of the court is violating the FT provisions about where players may be positioned. Additionally, every team member that is on the playing court has entered the court illegally. Additionally, every team member (and every asst. coach) that is standing is violating the bench decorum provisions.

So depending on your mood, you've got disconcertion or other FT violations, or any number of technical fouls you can assess.

Ok, I'm being a little silly. But only a little. The period isn't over, the ball is live. Team B is not allowed to leave their bench or to be on the floor. I would call a FT violation, get everybody back to the bench and re-administer. (I don't even care if they're standing while we re-administer, just get them out of the way.)

9-1 -"A player shall not violate the following provisions governing free throws:

Art. 8 ...A player, other than the free throw shooter, who does not occupy a marked lane space, may not have either foot beyond the vertical plane of the free-throw line extended and the three-point line which is further from the basket."

If it appeared to be a distraction to the shooter because of proximity to the lane, get the ball back before the shot, get B to clear the area, then shoot the FT. Otherwise, simply ignore it.

I am with you Chuck. I think that you covered the situation very well.
