running up court

I don't know if this was bought up before but I could not find an answer.

I was curious -- sometimes when I run up court i have my arms bent at a 90degree angle and when the game is a blowout i run up more with a 45degree bend. I know this is wrong because one should always run with 90degree angle no matter what the score is but there is no advantage/disadvantage gained.

I couldn't find any ruling from the NFHS regarding this but it appears that in NCAA-W its 90degree on a fast break but 45degree on normal transition whereas with the mens its 90degree only during inbouds after a timeout that was called before a technical was issued and 45degree all other times.

What do you do and think regarding this and I really hope the FED addresses this soon before we have a social meltdown and if you could back it up with case studies I would appreciate it.

As with most aspects of the game, apply advantage/disadvantage. If your assigner were to see you, would it be more to your advantage to have a 90 degree bend or a 45 degree bend?

I prefer the post-game 20 oz Guinness myself, but whatever.

I'm curious too. How do you bend your arm at a 90 degree angle?

At what angle do you have to bend your arm in order to be able to suck that mother back? 135 degrees? 288 degrees?

90degree angle would be a right angle just to refresh -- that is when 2 lines intersect perpendicular at their end points.

think of madonnas cone bra -- that might not illustrate what i am trying to explain but think of it anyway...

alright -- an L forms a right angle -- weather or not it is right side up or upside down -- so make an L with your arms -- yes, yes go ahead --- umm a bit more -- there you have it. Now pump frantically like Shaq is about to run into you and you are trying to get away. Ok JR maybe I can excuse you from this excercise (sp?).

Um, lines don't have end points, do they? Line segments, maybe? Rays, even.

Ooooo, very nice 20 year old reference. Very hip. Maybe it's hip to be square.
Oh, how I loved Huey Lewis and the News.

Weather or not? I'm pretty sure there's some kind of weather. Juulie's got rain; Mick's probably getting snow soon; and we're due for our first frost any morning now.

Jeez, when does the season start?!?!?!

Actually, this week we''ve got low 70's and sunshine. Not bad for the second week of October! Although, I'll be glad when the clouds finally set in.

But I think DeeCee needs to get into rehab quick for whatever he's smoking. It's gonna really screw up his season if he doesnt.

Be careful, even if the FED does address it, as soon as it is no longer printed verbatim in the most recent edition of the rule book, what ever ruling the FED provides will no longer be valid. Even in absence of a retraction or superceding rule.
