The lead official administers the ball to the free thrower, who catches it , holds it then dribbles it off of her leg and it bounces down the lane. A) the free thrower just stands there feeling stupid or B) the free thrower steps into the lane and recovers the ball. What do you do - High school varsity, in this case, but whould you do the same in all cases?

9.1B. Play: A1, at the free-throw line to attempt a free throw, is handed the ball by the official who then starts the 10-second count. A1 accidentally strikes his/her knee or leg with the ball while bouncing it. The ball rolls toward the basket between the free-throw lane lines. Ruling: The official shall sound the whistle at once causing the ball to become dead immediately. This will prevent a violation, such as another player stepping across a line to recover the ball. The official should caution the free thrower, then again place the ball at the disposal of A1 and start a new count.
