MN plays 2 halves, not 4 quarters

In Minnesota H.S. basketball we switched last year to two 18 minute halves instead of four eight minute quarters. The thinking at the time was it would create additional opportunities for bench players due to the need to rest the starters more as they wouldn't have the quarter breaks. Based on what I've seen, I can't attest to this being the case.

We also have approved video review for our state tournaments.

I had the whole sequence clearly & there was absolutely no question on the timing. I blow the whistle, count the basket, common foul on B1, and since they're not yet in the penalty ball OOB to A. I figured on having to explain it to the coaches, but was a little surprised I had to explain it to my partner...........
Boys JV last second shot, no foul, time runs out as ball bounces off floor and goes in. We don't count the shot team loses by one.

Come to think of it, the only time I dealt with one half was when I once dug half a hole.
Can I nominate this for post-of-the-month or something?

You could, but I think Old School has quite a few posts that would beat it out.

Has anybody ever seen Old School and Juggling Referee in the same room?

Off the subject, I've always wondered the same thing about Michael and LaToya.

Yes, s/he is good. But it was an honour to be in the same sentence as s/he. Now let me log off and log back in. (With apologies to OS.)

This frustrates me! Do others in your local choose what rules to enforce? How do you communicate to the coaches which rules you'll not use in the game at hand?

Two technical foul shots and the ball for the team that originally committed the intentional foul.
False double, right?

JV girls this afternoon; A1 on a throw-in following a made basket. Starts to throw and sees defense in way and tries to pull back. Ball comes loose and bounces on the court, and she steps out and grabs it. Not sure why, but I'd never had this violation before.
Next game, opening tip (JV boys). Black tips the ball towards the sideline, and it grazes off of white before heading OOB. No possession prior to the violation. Don't seem to get that often, either.

I almost forgot to add. I had two fouls called off because of violations my partner called that happened just prior to me blowing the whistle. One was a push through a screen that I blew right after he blew a travel up top. The other was on a rebound where H23 came crashing in, but the ball went OOB just before he plowed through an opponent.

From BillyMac's original post:
"I called a violation for excessivly swinging elbows (no contact). I used to call this a few times a season many years ago when it was only a violation. When the penalty changed to a technical foul, I never called it, because I thought the penalty was too severe. Since it has changed back to a violation, I hadn't called it until tonight."

From Juggling Referee's Reply:
"This frustrates me! Do others in your local choose what rules to enforce? How do you communicate to the coaches which rules you'll not use in the game at hand?"

Reply to JugglingReferee:
In general, I would agree with your statement that individual or local interpretations frustrate you and me both, but in this specific case, it appears that a lot of officials, nationwide, were not calling this technical foul. According to the 2002-03 NFHS Rule Book, page 4, Comments on the Rules Revisions: The penalty for excessive swinging of the elbows was changed back to a violation from a technical foul. The previous rule of a technical foul (changed in 1993-94) was very seldom called, as the penalty was very severe, without contact with an opponent. The committee hoped that by changing this infraction back to an enforceable and less severe penalty (a violation), that the call would be made more frequently and will acheived the desired result of reducing the potential of rough play.

I did a game once with half a partner . . . don't really want to repeat that.

I had a similar sitch in a BV game last week. Team A makes a basket. B1 throws in to B2 who is standing near the free throw line (no pressure from team A...all 5 were heading down court). Unfortunately for B1 he only tossed the ball about 2 feet onto the court and B1 made no effort to come back and get it, so as B1 ran on court he tapped the ball to B2. Tweet...come on back boys.
