Question

This seems like a silly question for this professional site, but I have recently started working at a privite school and they have an athletic department. It is a small school so outside participation is slim. I like basketball, but do not know a whole lot about the game. I volunteered to be the timekeeper. I understand when to stop and start the clock. Bonus and double bonus , timeouts and 1 & 2 warning horns. But I get totally confused with the Possession arrow. Please help or point me toward a resource to help.

Thanks for reading!

Josh

Thanks SmokEater,

I still having trouble when the arrow should be switched, for example Red Vs. White,

Start of the game JumpBall-White gets possesion.
The arrow goes to red. If there are no jump balls called do I switch the arrow at the next quarter or the half?


Thanks

Suggest you locate a game nearby and ask to sit at the table with an experienced crew.

I would expect they would be happy to let you OJT.

The arrow would be switched after the throw in for the next situation that requires an AP throw -In. If its quarters that you are playing then I would say at the start of that next quarter. I can only speak to halves, Next Ap would be start of second half, Red throw in, after the ball is in bounds arrow switches to White posession.

Hope that describes it for you.
