this play was brought to our recent assoc. meeting by a BV coach , who had this play on a tape, and wanted our opinion.

A1 is dribbling the ball in the backcourt, going towards his frontcourt. A2 who is clearly established with both feet in the front court, jumps towards the backcourt. while still in the air he clearly catches the pass from A1, with the ball not breaking the plane of the halfcourt line, and lands in the backcourt. violation?

i say yes, because he was established last in the frontcourt. some officials are saying since the ball never broke the plane of the halfcourt line, it didn't cause the 3 areas of the violation!

I understand front court / back court status refers to the ball - not where a player was that caught the ball before they jumped to catch it.

What if the player in your situation landed strattle the mid court line? Still would be back court status until both feet and the ball achieve front court.

Play on!

Violation.

The division line plane means squat.

Did the ball obtian FC status? Yes, because A2 is where he was until he gets where he's going. A2's status is the FC.

Is A the last to touch the ball when it obtains BC status? Yes, because A2 carried it to the BC.

Is A the first to touch the ball after it obtains BC status? Yes, because A2 carried it to the BC.

Violation.

It meets the four criteria, violation. I don't understand where the thinking about breaking the plane of the halfcourt line comes from. It's a red herring.

When did people start thinking about the plane over the division line? It couldn't be less relevant.
