Point of Interruption / Clarification

Please explain the procedure in putting the ball in play for this situation.

Before the bonus rule is in effect, B1 commits a rebounding foul on A1. After the whistle, A2 and B2 simultaneously are whistled for a "double technical" foul.

It is my contention that because of the dead ball period, the way to handle this play is as follows. Am I correct?

A false double foul. First report the rebound foul. Then, because of the dead ball period, follow the third way to put the ball in play ( c, in the rule book; chp 4; definitions; Res of Play ), which is to go to the AP arrow. The throw in is at half court and not the spot nearest the foul.

Please give me case plays or written text to verify or correct. Thanks!

Hi Bear, and welcome to the Forum. Glad you found us here. In your situation, you would NOT go to the arrow. If you read the complete rule, it says you go to the arrow if there's no team control AND neither team is entitled to a throw-in or FT (along with a couple other things). But in your case, Team A is entitled to a throw-in b/c of the rebounding foul. So the POI is Team A's throw-in. No need for the arrow.

You report all three fouls and then give Team A the throw-in to resume.

Bear, POI means we DON'T go to the arrow in these types of situations.

Point of interruption = what were we doing when the double foul occurred?

We were about do give the ball to Team A, because B1 fouled. SO that's what we do. That's the POI.

Bear, this rule was changed just this past season, so if you have an old rulebook, then you wouldn't know what we're talking about with regards to the point of interruption.

As the other guys have written you need to use 4-36-2b. Team A should have a throw-in nearest to where B1 committed the rebounding foul.

Question 94. After a double technical foul, the alternating-possession throw-in shall be from the division line opposite the scorer's and timer's table.
Answer: False (7-5-9; 4-36)
(Why? Because even if you had a double technical foul which did require the use of the AP arrow, you would still resume from the OOB spot nearest to the location of the ball. You would NOT go to the division line opposite the table, unless that, by chance, happens to be the nearest spot.)

7-5-9 . . . After a double personal foul, as in 4-19-8a; a double technical foul, as in 4-19-8b; or a simultaneous foul, as in 4-19-10, play shall be resumed at the point of interruption. See 4-36.

ART. 1 . . . Method of resuming play due to an official's accidental whistle, an interrupted game, as in 5-4-3, a correctable error, as in 2-10-6, a double personal, double technical or simultaneous foul, as in 4-19-8 and 4-19-10.
ART. 2…Play shall be resumed by:
a. A throw-in to the team that was in control at a spot nearest to where the ball was located when the stoppage occurred.
b. A free throw or a throw-in when the stoppage occurred during this activity or if a team is entitled to such.
c. An alternating-possession throw-in when the point of interruption is such that neither team is in control and no goal, infraction, nor end of quarter/extra period is involved.

And for a real life example from today: My partner calls a foul on B1 and A1 is entitled to 2FTs. While my partner is reporting the foul, A1 and B2 exchange verbal unpleasantries. I call a double technical foul. We charge three players with fouls, two of which are technical, tally two team fouls for B and one for A, then continue the game with A1's 2FTs as normal. This is also an example of 4-36-2b being put to use.
