Out of bounds?

Saw this in a Div 1 college game, but didn't see how was ruled.
Looking for NFHS ruling since I am a HS official.
Player A-1 is dribbling up the sideline and accidently hits B-1 who is out of bounds heading for the table to report in on the next dead ball. A-1 falls and loses control of the ball out of bounds.
What is the call?

Hi Bruno,

We talked about this exact play a while back. Here's the link. Feel free to add any thoughts.

Out Of Bounds Ruling...

We had a player shoot the ball on a layup, and miss the shot, he went out of bounds, came back in bounds, and then grabbed the ball, isnt he considered inbounds???

If he has something touching inbounds, and nothing touching out of bounds, he's inbounds and remains inbounds until such time as he touches out of bounds again.

Out Of Bounds Ruling...

Ok, thanks Saddle Man.

So your saying, whether he goes out of bounds or not, he came back in bounds and re-established himself, so that means he could pick up the ball. We had an official say that because he shot the ball and he went out of bounds he could not come back in bounds and pick up the ball. We have always been taught that once you go out of bounds if you establish yourself back in bounds you can proceed to pick up the ball, no matter the event that got you there....

Is that correct?? Do you know of a rulebook online that I can review??

What you have been taught is correct. Whether there is a shot involved makes no difference. You can check out the NCAA book online; the high school book is not available online. But the rules are the same in this regard.

Substitute initiates the contact

So... after reading 7.1.1A

what would we call if we felt the incoming substitute initiated the contact from OOB?

Say the substitute thinks the dribbler is going to fall into him and the sub then sticks out a hand to prevent the collision ... and then the dribbler subsequently falls down, loses the ball, or collides with a legal defender...

Would the team affiliation of the incoming sub make any difference in the ruling?

The only call that could be made here is an unsporting technical foul on a member of bench personnel.

If the sub interfered with a member of the opposing team during play, it is probably a T. I could see passing on it, if it was clearly not an unsporting act. If it was his own team, just call the play as if there were no contact between these two.

Darn right it would matter to me.

The sub was from the defensive team and tripped the kid as he was coming off the bench due to the lack of space between the side line and the floor, and the official just simply gave the ball back to the offensive team as though it was out of bounds off the defensive team. In that case, I think it was the right thing to do, as it was clearly not an unsporting act. The defensive sub didn't even know the ball was right there, and he was trying to get past his coach. As for if the sub reached out, that would be the judgement of the official if he were protecting himself/the dribbler or not. If so, put it out of bounds. Neither coach said a word in the college game.

This is such a pain in the butt and it happens at every single game I'm at. Why do the chairs for the teams have to be 3 feet from the inbounds line? Why can't we have 10 feet of space for people to make throw-ins, or to walk to the table for subs? Doesn't football have a rule about how close the teams can stand to the sidelines? Maybe basketball should have a similar rule, at least for Division 1. They can afford whatever small expense it might take.

The expense arises in having less space for (paying) fans. Remove the first row, and you could lose a lot of revenue...

Remember: we all have our priorities. Do you think the convenience of officials and inbounders will trump the almighty dollar?

Not really - a lot of gyms have bleachers that can't be moved back.

I doubt you'd lose "a lot" of revenue. (It's not like you're losing a row of your most expensive seats. The second row just becomes the new first row and you pay first row prices.) And anyway, that's why I said it should apply to Division 1 schools, at least. If anybody can afford it, they can. This scenario should not happen in a major conference D1 game.

Actually, the NFHS book is available online, you just have to be a member to access it. Most states include your NFHS membership with your registration.
