Backcourt?

I saw this in an 8th grade boys game last night. I am sure this has been discussed previously, but I must have missed it somewhere.

Team A has established possession in their front court. A1 throws a pass to A2 who, before touching the ball, leaves the floor from the backcourt, then catches the pass and before touching the front court, passes to A3.

Backcourt? rule reference?

It is a backcourt violation. Rule 4, with out the rule book in front of me I cannot give a citation. However remember that "you are where you were until you get where your going." Meaning that a players location is where he was last in contact with the floor. Also the location of the ball is where it was when it was last in contact with a player. So the ball was in the frontcourt and the player was in the backcourt. it is a backcourt violation

The phrase is written in its abbreviated form at the end of a mathematical proof or philosophical argument to signify that the last statement deduced was the one to be demonstrated; the abbreviation thus signals the completion of the proof.

Sometimes, when a coach mouths off, I'll say to him "Quare si mihi cura est". Loosely translated from Latin it means "Ask me if I care".

Or, literally, "Ask if it is a care for me." The personal pronoun here takes the syntactical significance of a dative of advantage/disadvantage. That's why Latin and officiating have a lot in common, borrowing terminology from each other. Sure, one could make the argument for "mihi" serving as a dative of possession, but then my illustration wouldn't carry any weight.
I'm almost sorry I missed my appointment with my shrink yesterday in order to do a F/JV fill-in.

Been trying to figure out if he and Lord Byron would be a good crew -- or just talk past one another -- and I just can't come up with the words to describe it. C'est la vie.

The penalty for using that language on the board is two shots. Not at the basket, but upside the head with a frying pan.

It is OK to reference french toast, french fries and french kissing, however.
