Time Outs

Team A scores a basket and Team B player retrieves ball for throw in. Team A calls a time out. Is it a legal time out by high school rules?

If the ball has not yet become live, yes. The ball becomes live when the player for B has (or should have had) the ball ready for a throwin...which means you will have started a 5 second throwin count.

Some here will say that the moment B catches the ball, it's is too late for A to get a timeout. However, not one of those people has ever owned up to starting the count before B has gotten into a position to actually make the throwin unless B is deliberately delaying.

They want it both ways...ball live for the purposes of a timeout but ball dead for the purposes of the 5 count....can't have both. The ball is either live or dead...if the count is not started, grant the timeout.

I'm one of 'em.

I disagree completely with Camron on this, but I ain't gonna rehash the old argument.
