I was working a JV tonight. One of the Varsity refs gave us this scenario tonight while at halftime. I guess this happened in a JV game in Kentucky recently. Okay, white team has a 1 point lead and the ball,with just a few seconds left in game, Red team gives a hard foul with excessive contact, the official calls an intentional foul. This is where the problems begin, other official lets everyone line up on free throw lane, The calling official comes back from reporting foul doesn't change anything, white shoots 1st freethrow, makes it. shoots 2nd misses, red team grabs rebound and throws down court and player from red team throws in a 3 as the buzzer sounds, both coaches going crazy, white team should have had the ball after the free tosses, is this correctable? what parts of it is correctable and how should have this been handled? Officials were leaving court like nothing was wrong with what just happened?

That is not a correctable error. This is a misapplication of the rules.

First there is not supposed to be anyone one the line except the shooter and the fouled team gets the ball back.

Second, none of the situations you described fit under the correctable error section. Unless the shooter was the wrong shooter then nothing is correctable here.
Treat everyone as you would like to be treated.

Wink Let us not take it that far.

If they are JV officials I think it is safe to assume that either all or most of the officials are not very experienced. I am surprised the offended coach did not take issue with everyone being on the FT lane lines. Maybe they did but everyone dropped the ball. That tends to happen with inexperienced officials. We all made mistakes as we were coming up through the ranks.

Not correctable because it was not an error that resulted in:


a. Failure to award a merrited free throw
b. Awarding an unmerited free throw
c. Permitting a wrong player to attempt a free throw
d. Attempting a free trhrow at the wrong basket
e. Erroneously counting or canceling a score
