Hi all,

I love reading this forum and learning. Here's a question that I have:

Player A is on offense and fumbles the ball. Player B (on defense) and Player A go after the ball. Player A reaches the ball, gets his hand on it, but just as he does, player B contacts player A's hand and forces the ball out of bounds. Player A is the last person to touch the ball.

My instinct tells me this is a foul on player B, but I want to be sure. I'm guessing the "hand is part of the ball" rule does not apply since no one was in immediate control of the ball.

Am I correct?

Thanks.

ART. 2 . . . It is legal use of hands to reach to block or slap the ball controlled by a dribbler or a player throwing for goal or a player holding it and accidentally hitting the hand of the opponent when it is in contact with the ball.

Most officials are going to see B getting hand and ball on this type of play and award the ball to team A on an OOB violation on B.

It is not a foul.
