Test Question

Hers one.....A-5 coming off a screen, receives the ball. As A-5 is in the act os shooting, official blows whistle and charges A-3 for blocking. A-5 shoots and scores. Official disallows basket. Is the official correct???

Now my question is .....Wouldn't it depend on whether or not he had released the ball yet???

Thanks in advance

Yup, that's exactly why they asked the question. It's also why they told you the exact sequence in the question....foul by a teammate followed by the shot.

Also Madness, check your test, but many times, the test-makers tell you the "in the act of shooting" means that the ball is still in the shooter's hand. It's ususally printed up at the top of the test somewhere.

Does the foul have to occur prior to the release or prior to the trying motion?

Nevermind, I think I have answered my own question. 6-7 Exception

Foul by teammate - ball must be in flight in order to count.
Foul by opponent - player must be in act of shooting (ie, the trying motion must have started) in order to count.

Correct?

Depends which team commits the foul, doesn't it? In the original question, it was a teammate of the shooter. So. . . . you make the call.
