Exclamation Never saw this before

Had an 8th grade boys game last night. One of the players on the visiting team would make most of his team's throw-ins. Sometimes, he would whip the ball around his back to throw it in, sometimes flip it from behind his head and sometimes bounce it in between his legs. He would do this even if all his teammates were being closely guarded. The amazing thing was that he never screwed up a pass. He must have does this at least a dozen times during the game. After about his third time, all the fans would cheer whenever he did it.

Oh yeah - he never did it at all on the floor, only on inbound plays.

Ok, I'll go back and read the entire thread.

Thumbs down

BTW - the home team was ahead by 18 with less than three minutes to go and the visiting HC had his team start to foul. I must have called three or four intentionals and my partner about the same, but they kept doing it right up to the final 15 seconds when the coach finally "gave up" being down by over 25.

That was really annoying.

A potential future Harlem Globetrotter??

Did the pass between the legs bounce occur inbounds or on the line?
Did anyone videotape this?

Today, everything is taped. Last year, I had a fan come out during the break between the first and second period, and show me, on his cell phone, that I had made the correct call in disallowing a shot at the buzzer.
