Would this be a backcourt violation?

A1 steals the ball but can't quite get a handle on it. A1 falls to the ground, then corrals the ball. A1 has half his body on one side of the division line, half his body on the other. His feet are in his backcourt.

When A1 gets control, his feet are on the ground. As he's looking for someone to throw the ball to, he lifts his feet up, so that the only part of him that's touching the floor is in the frontcourt. He then puts his feet back down.

Is this a backcourt violation?

No.

bas2456, once a player is totally in the FC and holding the ball, it's a violation to touch the BC. Don't let the fact that he's not standing confuse it for you.

But when was he totally in the FC? I can't tell from the OP where the play started, nor when he got rid of the ball.

This is when he obtains FC status.
