Question

A question came up this weekend. Trail calls a 10 second backcourt violation when A1 is dribbling the ball on the front court while standing in the backcourt. NCAA rules. Was he correct? The ball is clearly in the front court, but the dribbler does not have front court status.

Yes, he was. When the ball is being dribbled, the ball and both feet of the dribbler must achieve FC status before the count ends.

If you were to argue that it wasn't a 10 second violation since the ball was being dribbled in the frontcourt, it would have to be a backcourt violation (over and back) on the very first dribble that touched the frontcourt. The ball would be in the frontcourt on the dribble, but the player would be in the backcourt when the ball came back up for the next dribble. This would occur on just about every possession that the ball is dribbled up the court. Of course, this is not the case.

As BktBallRef said, a dribbled ball is in the backcourt until both feet of the dribbler and the ball touch entirely in the froncourt.

Thumbs up

Thanks guys. This was my take on the situation as well, but confirmation and validation is important, especially when you're the new kid on the block!

Yes, confirmation and validation are important, and so are argument and disagreement, when you are wrong. You'll get tons of both here and this process can cut at least two or three years out of the middle of your struggle up the ladder, if you apply them proplerly. (You won't learn spelling or grammar, though, but that's okay because they don't matter!)
