Player A is out of bounds. Player A bounces ball out of bounds or on the line before player B touches the ball. Is this a violation?

Tim Roden Thu Apr 06, 2000 11:38am

B's ball. Yes, this is a violation.

Kent, is A the thrower-in?

Assuming player A is the inbounder (I refuse to use the NF term "thrower-in", every time I hear it I want to "thrower-up"), it is not a violation for him to bounce the ball OOB (or on the line, since the line is OOB) unless he has released the ball towards the court for his inbound pass and the pass hits OOB. Of course, the five second count is going during his bouncing.

Like any other inbounds, they can step on but not over the line.

Well said Mark! Thrower-in = Thrower-up! I love it.

Here's a question - what about the position of his foot(feet)? Can foot be on line or partially over line before releasing ball? When is it a violation?

Brian -

So if any part of the foot is inbounds(half may be in/half OOB) it is a violation. Correct? I've seen this call missed quite often.

Brian Watson Fri Apr 07, 2000 03:00pm

The line is OOB, so it is OK to touch the line(you're still "established" out of bounds).
But, once your foot touches the court, you have "established" yourself inbounds... violation.

You just have to think in reverse of when the ball is in play.
