Correctable Error

Just want to be sure I have this right. In a game played today a player (team A) was fouled and awarded two foul shots. She made the first shot and then the other team (team B) took the ball out of bounds and quickly went down and scored at the other end. Play continued until a different player on the A team was fouled and awarded two foul shots. The play had not stopped until that point. The mistake was realized at that time and nothing was done. The officials said that since play had continued they couldn't correct it. What should have been done in this case?

Thanks.

This was a Correctable Error as defined in Rule 2-10. But once Team B had scored at the other end (which is a dead ball) and Team A had inbounded the ball after that made basket, the window for correcting the error is passed, and the error can no longer be corrected.

If there had been no made baskets and no other stoppages of play, then the second shot could have been awarded with the lane cleared, and then Team A could have taken their second set of shots from that more recent foul. SO the refs got it right that the error couldn't be corrected, I'm not sure from what you said that they did it correctly for the right reasons.

The referees did not realize this was a two shor foul? It seems to me that someone would have remembered signalling or telling somone it was two....

Good advice for rookie officials. It's better to prevent a correctable error than to know how to correct a correctable error, even though you better know how to correct a correctable error if you don't prevent a correctable error, or to never have loved at all. I've got to get away from this computer. It's making me crazy today.
