Funniest thing I've seen for a while that's for sure...

28.5 inch ball, perfect arc, perfect spot I guess. Right to a dead thud stop.

Maybe Camron has time to Trig out a diagram.

Correct ....as I found out later. The arrow was not an issue to them. They gave home team the ball back as a FT violation. I did not know that until after the game.

Chances are, if you'd tried to slip behind the bench to address it, you'd have got stuck with a T. Not much you can do but let it play out.

Then I would have made it 2 T's. Then the officials would have to write a report explaining that they blew a rule then had to toss an assistant.

I can understand how that would be tempting.

Pfft in Texas we were threatened by the head of UIL officiating that if we ejected a coach after messing up a rule that we would be called to Austin along with the coach. In other words, it might be worth your trouble here!

Definitely an odd one. I saw one even stranger 6 years ago. Boys Varsity, three point shot attempted from the left side of the court. The ball sticks between the rim and back board on the FAR side of the rim!! WTH?? Never seen that before. That's why I love this game, its always different than the others!

This was obviously a case of not knowing the rules in regards to the ball being lodged between backboard/rim, not a case of not knowing who had the arrow.

Also, we do not HAVE to go with an arrow that is pointed in the wrong direction.


Coach P, how the hell did the ball get lodged on a free throw?

My first thought.

I had it happen (ball-lodged-beween-rim-and-backboard) earlier this year, actually. I didn't actually see HOW it happened (I was the L, so I was watching the rebounding action), but it did happen.

I also caused a ball to rest on the flange during a FT attempt in my JR High playing days. Also had a teammate who, airballed the first of 2 FTs. Coach said "You need to shoot it a bit harder", and his next attempt went over the backboard.

Good question BadNewsRef. It must have been one hell of a bad free throw.

[QUOTE=bob jenkins;812251]It's happened.

And, while I agree they should remember, we often don't think to remember until something happens that gets us in trouble. Plus, here, maybe they did remember -- the arrow, as it turns out, wasn't the issue.[/QUOTE]
Agreed. Not knowing the rule on FT violations was the issue.
