4-43 sliding with the ball while on knees

A1 gains control of the ball as she is on her knees. She slides a couple of feet forward while in control of the ball. Both knees remain in contact with the floor constantly.She never attempts to get up or pivot. Is this a travel?

I believe that this is not a travel.

The traveling rule is one of the most misunderstood rules in basketball. A player may slide on the floor while trying to secure a loose ball until that player’s momentum stops. At that point that player cannot attempt to get up or rollover. A player securing a ball while on the floor cannot attempt to stand up unless that player starts a dribble. A player in this situation may also pass, shoot, or request a timeout. If the player is flat on his or her back, that player may sit up without violating.

No kidding. My experience has shown that skin doesn't slide well on a basketball court; about as well as rubber soled shoes.
