Home coach asks for 30 second timeout. I inform my partner and then turn to report the timeout to the scorekeeper. There to my left is the entire bench out 15 feet out on the floor in a huddle!

Me: Coach, you need to be over by the bench.

Coach: Not for a 30 sec time out.

Me: Yes, you do.

Coach: Not for a 30 sec timeout.

I got it taken care of but my partner wondered if there was a rule. Danged if it could be found during halftime. Finally, at home, I found 5-12-5 and 10-4-4.

Anything more?

Take your books with you to games. That teachable moment is hard to re-capture!

The coach is right, 1-13-3:

ART. 3 . . . The bench area shall be the area inside an imaginary rectangle formed by the boundaries of the sideline (including the bench), end line, and an imaginary line extended from the free-throw lane line nearest the bench area meeting an imaginary line extended from the coaching-box line.

So unless they were in the paint, their huddle was okay.

We tried to find it during halftime so as not to miss that teaching moment but could not.

They were outside that box. They were nearly in front of the scorer's table and way out on the floor.

Depending on the gym, the coaching box (28' from the endline) can extend to "nearly in front of the scorer's table." And, in an earlier post, you indicated the team was "out 15 feet out on the floor." The nearer lane line is 22' from the sideline.

The "time out box" goes from the end-line to the end of the coaching box (28'), and from the bench to the FT line.

How do you know which end of the coaching box this is talking about? The rule quoted isn't clear.

Common sense.

Why would the rule force them OUT of the coaching box during a timeout?

It clearly means the 28' line to the end line, to the near lane line.

Because if it was the end of the coache box nearer the endline, you wouldn't need the "imaginary line extended from the FT lane line" language -- you'd just use the "FT lane line part of the reference.

Have any of you seen the Georgia women's Div 1 team during time-outs? They bring chairs out onto the court (roughly half way between the side line and near side of the key). I'm assuming Andy wants to get them away from the noisy crowd, but I've never seen this called as a violation.

30 sec. time out.

Can someone help.

I tried the same drawing as RookieDude, but it didn't work out, either.

Maybe different words will help:

The four sides of the TO area are:

1) The bench
2) The endline
3) The nearer FT lane line, extended toward the division line
4) The 28' mark, extended toward the opposite sideline

Why would you even feel the need to address this? It's only 30 seconds.
