back court confusion

After made basket, A1 inboiunds ball to A2, who throws pass while in backcour to A3, who leaps from Front court-catches ball and lands in back court. So this is NO LONGER an inbounds throw.

Do we have back court? I have received two different answers from two different veterans, and the rule book is confusing me.

Once the throw-end has ended, all backcourt rules apply. The key here is to ask "where is A3's location while airborne?". If no part of him is in the backcourt when he catches the ball, he's still in the frontcourt. When he lands in the backcourt with the ball, he has violated. See rule 4-35 Art 3.

Shouldn't be any confusion. A3 was in his FC, caught the ball and took it to the BC. Tweet.

You need to ask the veteran who doesn't think it is a violation why he thinks that. I would be interested to hear the reason. I had a seasoned veteran tell me last month that this wasn't a violation if the ball doesn't cross the division line even if the player jumps from the frontcourt.

The four criteria for BC violation have been met, assuming you know why A3 was in the FC. For that, check rule 4 "Player Location."

The popular expression of that rule is: you are where you were till you get where you're going.
